I hosted some friends and family on New Year's Eve. Earlier that day, I asked my Dad what he remembers from his youth about New Year's Eve. And he said he remembered putting out fresh fruit as a symbol of good things to come in the new year.
So.... in Dad's spirit, I filled a vase with oranges and sticks. (Then I added my own twist.)
I wanted to create something that I would like to experience.
I painted 14 white envelops red, wrote tiny messages in each one, and filled them with money ( 1's, 5's 10's and 20's). I tied them to the tree. As guests arrived, I asked them to pick an envelope off the wish tree. It was so exciting each time they did, the faces were priceless as they revealed their treasure. Everyone was hoping for the big money!!!
I am so excited about our new tradition. Happy New Year, may fortune be yours.
There is no place in the country like Miss Cayce's. It is the most magical place in the LAND! Thank you Miss Cayce's and West Texas for the fabulous FROSTY party this past weekend. Your land is rich in oil...but your people are richer in kindness and hospitality!!! Thank you, thank you for supporting my work, my mission to spread cheer throughout the LAND, for supporting my momma and her battle with Alzheimer's. The donations that you're making to the Alzheimer's Association are so generous.
