flea market finds

this vendor 
located outside the actual flea market 

he didnt want to pay the vendor fee 
maybe he wanted to corner the market on party hats for New Year's Eve   

how do you plan on celebrating? 

are you going out? 
staying in? 

will you be wearing a hat? 
will you be tooting a noisemaker?  

will you party hearty?
will you toast the new year and then head to bed?  

tell me all about it in the comment section.  


 Well this year 
we'll be celebrating together 
at home 
in front of the BIG television that dominates our living room 
likely a bottle of bubbly will be opened 
toasts to the new year will be made

here's a toast to you, gentle reader:  
health, happiness, prosperity to one and all 

I look forward 
to sharing another year 
photographs and blather 
with you

thanks again for coming along as I go out and about in New York City!


  1. I'm a stay at home type of gal ... well, my older self is at least!
    Have so enjoyed my year with you and looking forward to the next, my friend! Merry merry!

  2. We will also stay home, sitting in front of the TV and will make a toast to the New Year. As corny as it seems, we always watch the ball drop in Times Square...
    I sincerely thank you for sharing your insights and wonderful photos with us through the year and look forward to sharing the New Year with you.
    Wishing you peace and happiness! xoxo

  3. We used to go out and about Daryl...but our older selves go out for an early dinner and then hang out by our fireplace and watch the ball drop...perhaps some shrimp...and a toast!

    Happy New Year Daryl!!

  4. Happy new year to you, Daryl. Sounds like a lovely evening. I am cooking up a fancy dinner for another couple -- but the food is the only thing fancy. We'll spend the evening eating, gabbing, and watching a movie while waiting for midnight and the bubbly.

  5. Progressive partying with the neighbors, hopefully. We like to keep it in the 'hood. Funny thing is, no one wants to be the house where we actually ring in the new year, so we might end the fun around 11:30 and retreat to our respective beds. I mean homes. BOR-ING!

  6. I remember that table. Happy New Year, my friend.

  7. I should have bought the corny cutout 2012 hat, and wear it to work as I spin the roulette wheel to the masses...no staying up for me I have to be up at 4am to go to work on the first day of the new year...someday i really do intend to have a life...

  8. We're going out for an Indian Meal with friends and lots of wine probably!

    Looking forward to a new year learning more about NYC from you and wishing you and Ray a Happy & Healthy 2012. x

  9. a toast to you dear friend! the very best to you in this amazing new year that is almost upon us xox

  10. We will spend New year with family and friends, looking forward to it. It's been such a pleasure getting to know you better Daryl and looking forward to more next year, enjoy your evening tomorrow, it sounds like you have a lot to be thankful for!

  11. Going just a bit out of town to some friends' place. No noisemakers; sparklers! No hats...

  12. I'll be kicking up my heels. Happy New Year to you

  13. We are not party people at this point in life. So we will be home and likely into bed at our usual time. It is good that we can watch the ball drop at 9 our time. Happy New Year to you and your husband. Cheers!

  14. Definitely staying in!
    I never ever miss the ball drop in Times Square!

  15. Happy New Year, my lovely friend. We were at Frank's and his sister and brother in law came over for munchies and good conversation.
