Out with the old year (2013), In with the new (2014)

While we traditionally stay home and go to bed early each New Year's Eve, we strayed from that this year.... 

We had some friends that live near over for dinner, and we did consume some Champagne, oysters and...  and, we had a "Tiger On a Gold Leash".

We had a fun variety of foods cooked in both the hot-pot and on the salt plate.

later that night, I noticed my NYr's Eve jacket matched the bathroom tile...

2014, the first day... it wasn't easy, but we'd already RSVP'd to two parties. 

Baird Blanton

We always enjoy Susannah and Baird's house. 

baird's odditorium

They have a nice collection of oddities interesting items.

I had a conversation with the future me, or the past somebody for sure. 

vintage medical device

Many vintage medical devices and old baby doll heads complete the motif. 

The next party at Darla's: more Champange?  sure, let's do it again.

annual bubbles and hangover party

I heard the final dead bubble soldier count was 48 for this party.  2014 rolled in with a BANG!

cheers to a new year!
