Happy 2013 To You

Yesterday, to help prepare for the arrival of 2013, I stripped the tree of everything Christmas, left the lights on and, for the first time ever, decided to add a little New Year themed decorations:

the tree is still fresh and the city isn’t picking up trees for another week, so why not enjoy it while it lasts?  I added clock faces, wooden numbers, snowflakes, a few small chalkboards and vintage flash card reproductions filled with words of inspiration for 2013!

If you’re interested in having a few of these vintage flash card reproductions for yourself, they are now listed in The Ironstone Nest Etsy shop!  I have a ton of words that can be used around your home for inspiration, or even as sweet little notes to a loved one!

We wish a very Happy New Year to you & yours!  May your 2013 be filled with peace, health, happiness, wonderful opportunities, many blessings and dreams come true!

Thank you for reading!
