a Watched Croc...


the clock winds down on 2010

Some will watch the Times Square celebrations,
or fireworks, or throw confetti and balloons.

Our family tradition for generations -
Bang on the kitchen pots with wooden spoons.

Why?
No idea!
Other than it is loud and fun!
And I don’t mind a few dents in my pots as it reminds me of another year with family.

A Watched Croc…..
Happy New Year!

I love your tradition!!!
It brings back such fond memories as we did the same thing when we were kids!!
I remember running out to the street banging our pots and pans yelling Happy New Year!!!!
Such Sweet Memories!!
I want to wish you a Happy New Year filled with promise for both of us :)
Lots of Love,

We love traditions at New Year's, too - smoked salmon and champagne and board games in front of the fire... and hopefully stay up long enough to ring in 2011! Thanks for stopping by The Buzz - I look forward to reading many more of your posts and being inspired by your wonderful designs!

Have fun beating those pots tonight! Very quiet celebration at ButtermilkCottage tonight, as in not doing anything. I'll probably have a glass of wine as I watch the ball come down in NYC (my daughter will be in that crowd!) Best for a wonderful year to come!

Hi Cathy! Happy New Year :) I added you to my blog roll, so I'll be much better about regular coffee visits! Hugs, Kelly

It's all about
the traditions,
isn't it? Sounds
like everyone made
merry, despite the
blizzard and your
crazy travels! Thank
you for your lovely
Christmas wishes ~
they meant a lot to
me. I hope that your
New Year is off to
a wonderful start!

Did it ever boil? Love it!

Sounds like the end of your holidays were quite an adventure! Our flights down and up the California coast were either canceled or delayed too...you saw much more interesting holidays decorations than we did in the palm springs airport.

Happy, happy 2011,
xo,
Alexis
