New Year's Eve





Hi and Happy New Year to you!  Thank you for a year of encouragement and support.  I'm sharing some fun, vintage New Year's images and sending my hope that you all have a happy, healthy, and creative 2015!  Plus a late addition below...


On New Year's Eve every year we stop by the local South Pasadena Rose Parade float construction site.  Most of the other parade floats are decorated by commercial float builders but ours is "self-built" by South Pasadena volunteers, which only a few local cities do.  I'm including a photo of the finished float ready to head out to Colorado Boulevard very soon.  Racing dragon boats this year!

  2. I saw this float in the parade and thought it was so creative! Did you volunteer some time? - very cool that its not commercially built. We were at the parade a few years ago and had to bundle up - very chilly! Happy New Year, Sherry!

    1. I haven't volunteered for float work yet! Really chilly this year, record lows for us.

  5. Who doesn't enjoy a community float... Sherry, remember back in the day local kids could earn some change working on the floats over holiday vacation time? To bad they pulled that off the plate.

    Happy 2015
