Happy New Year!

I am always so excited to start a new year! I am one of those people that even loves Mondays! It feels like a fresh start…with no mistakes…yet! (a quote from Anne of Green Gables)

I love cards and notes….and letters, of course. And it made me feel extra special to receive so many this year.

We have wide windowsills so it’s a perfect place to display and enjoy them.

You’ll just have to ignore the gas grill, bird feeders and empty shelves on the bakers rack in the courtyard. Just look at the cards! heehee!

How do you display your cards?

Diane said...

How nice to have a sill like that! I hang my cards on a louvered door which is a little funny because its the only one in the house hung "inside out" otherwise the cards would not hang properly. I guess someone's mistake did me a favor. And isn't it a shame more people don't send cards like years ago??

I have a reindeer with slots to hold the cards,been around for years. I go through them one last time then cut the pretty front off and use for gift tags nexy year.

I giggled when I saw your cards so neat and tidy looking. My cards are pretty much all over. The refrigerator, kitchen window sill, kitchen counter, hutch.....yikes :)

maddyrose said...

I wish I had a large window with a deep sill so I could display my cards like you have but since I don't I have them in a pretty basket guarded by some of my snowmen. Happy new year sweet lady. Hugs

pembrokeshire lass said...

I stick them wherever I can and am in no hurry to take them down! Sometimes birthday cards can be up for 2 weeks. Happy New Year to you and yours. Joan

Barbara said...

I do love that
Anne of Green Gables quote. Happy New Year to you!

NanaDiana said...

Happy New Year to you, too, Diane. I keep my cards in a basket set on a side table so that we can pick them up and sit and read them when we have time. Monday is my favorite day of the week- xo Diana

Olive said...

Happy New Year. I love to send and receive Christmas cards. I put mine on a tray on the bar. My card this year was an image of Joe, the puppy, and me.

Laurie said...

your cards look beautiful on the window ledge! Its great to have such wide sills! I string mine on a ribbon across the fireplace, simple simple, nothing fancy here! LOL, Best Wishes to you!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

LOL - the grill and bird feeder etc. were the FIRST things I noticed because I SO miss them --haha! THEN I moved on to your lovely, deep window ledges and your cards. Great way to display them!

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

Love the snowman! He needs swim trunks though! LOL!!! Beautiful cards on display too!

Happy New Year!
Mary

ImSoVintage said...

I'm afraid I am a terrible sender and receiver of cards. You have the perfect place to display your, though. :)

A Garden of Threads said...

They become part of my Christmas decorations that I put on the fireplace mantle. Wishing you all the best in 2013. Jen.

Chatty Crone said...

You have so many nice cards - because you are a sweetie. I love Ann of Green Gables and I love that quote.

That's a good way to display your cards...mine are draped over my crochet garland and taped onto my fridge in the form of a Christmas tree. I, too, enjoy cards. I used to say that I didn't, but I was just lying. ;>

BECKY said...

Hey Diane...I love Mondays, too! But that wasn't the case during some of the years I worked full-time at jobs I did not like! I'm grateful I'm able to stay home and write!

Lorrie Orr said...

That's a wonderful way to display your cards. Mine are in a pile on my hall table - I leaf through them and pick out different ones to place on top. I do enjoy receiving, and sending cards, but do less than I used to.

Happy New Year!

Lavender Cottage said...

I like the way your cards are displayed Diane. Mine are piled in a pretty basket as I don't have room to lay them out anywhere. Not that I have a lot. :-)
Happy New Year.

Ginger Zuck said...

You have a perfect spot for your card display. I have a copper ho ho basket that I hang it at the bottom of my tree. Hugs!

edenhills said...

That is a lovely array of Christmas cards. I'm not a big card person, but I do have a shelf I put them on.

Diane Writes said...

Hi namemate! Thank you for linking up on the last Beautiful Sunday of 2012. I'm so thankful because you never left my humble, quiet and often neglected series haha

I love the idea of displaying all those Christmas cards. Despite the convenience of email and text messages, nothing still beats the happiness of receiving Xmas cards.

Enjoy New Year's Ever and wishing you a happy 2013!

eileeninmd said...

Love the row of Christmas cards. Wishing you all the best in 2013, Happy New Years!

Cheryl Kraynak said...

HA! I say that Anne of Green Gables quote all the time, and in fact my sister just told me she got the DVD from the library this week to watch it.

You sure have the biggest window sill ever. I hang cards from a ribbon that I use clothespins ( the mini ones) to attach them with.

Happy new year to you too!

The Painted Garden said...

Wishing you a Happy and Fun New Year filled with lots of friends, laughter, joy and peace.
Blessings,

podso said...

Nice way to display your cards. I leave mine in a decorative container and just hang a few. My kids hang a clothesline around their door and pin cards up; it looks nice. Wishing you a happy new year!

~Sia McKye~ said...

A happy and productive New Year to you too!

All that green grass at this time of year. I always have bird feeders out. I love watching the birds come in and gossip. :-)

Robyn said...

Wow you got some really beautiful cards this year! and I love your picture window.. I too like Mondays and people always called me weird for that but as you say, its a new start to a new week!..

Hello, Diane
I am sorry because I haven't been write you but I have been sick.

Well thank you for your Christmas message.

Now I send you my blessings for you and your family the next Year 2013.

Have a good holiday,

Caty.

PS I like your Christmas cards. Are they all this year?

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh what a blessing to have received so many beautiful cards!!

Della Merritt said...

You window sills look a little wider than mine, but I think I can still do this next year. This year for lack of a better place to hang them, I taped them to the wall :)

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Happy New Year and what a nice view you all have with those wide windows. The cards displayed this way looks really nice, but would never word here...no window sills, and we have cats;') I have a basket that I got when my momma passed away in 1993 and I keep them in that basket, placing the newer ones to the front every day~

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Hello! I've been catching up with you.....you've been busy, and wow! You've had a lucky year!

I love what you've done with your window sill...how nice to have a deep sill for pretty displays!

xo,
RJ

The Shop Around the Corner said...

Love how you displayed your cards, Diane. I've been receiving less and less throughout the years, but I will never stop mailing out Christmas cards regardless of technology. I think it's such a special tradition.
I typically keep mine on our foyer table or on our mantel which my husband built me years ago at our old home. We didn't bring it along with us to our new home because it weighed a ton since he used beautiful stones for it, but I will miss it. Guess I'll have to have him make me a new one. ;)
