Time to Remember and a Happy New Year


Hello Everyone!
Hope you all Had a Wonderful Christmas
and Managing to Find some Time to Relax.
Here we are On News Years Adam
(As Uncle Jim would Say)
Getting ready for a Brand New Year!
I am still Trying to Figure out where 2011 went to!
 I have been Playing again with Table Dressing.
This one of Course if for News Years
but I really Wanted to make it about
Memories and
Remembering our Past.
 
These are All Collected Pieces of Mine.
All of the Things I Love.
Lace , Buttons, Old Photos, Books,
Bling, Clock and Watch Pieces
 I was Thinking about all the History here.
Each Picture ,each Piece of Jewelry or Lace.
The Keys the Pocket Watches all Tell a Story.


Was this Little Piece of Lace Part
of a Wedding Dress ...
Were These Buttons on a Beautiful Dress
or a Gentlemen s Waistcoat...
The Cameo Earrings and the Pearls...
Did they Belong to a Favorite Auntie..
Who's Grandchild is  this Little Sweetpea.. .




 I Love the History Here.

I used simple things Here to make up My Table.
Like the Items of my Centerpiece.
The Placemats are 2 Sheets
of Printed Cardstock.
The Horns were  bought at Target
and recovered with Sheet Music.
The Little Journal Book
I Found on Clearance after Christmas.
 I just repurposed  them with my Own Cover.
(There Was a Scarey Looking
Choir Boy on them Before...
 You Might Have seen them at ShopKo...) 
The Hats I made with
More Printed Images
on Cardstock .
I Traced a Party Hat to Make a Template.
A Roll of Black Crepe Paper Streamer
to Make my Ruffle.
I  Pleated it with my Fingers
 then Hot Glued it to my Hat
and the Watch face to make a Medallion.
(Hot Glueing was a Little Tricky with the Fingers.
I did it that way just Because I was Pinched for Time.
You Might Have a Better Method!) 


Hope you Enjoy my Little Bit of Whimsy!
Have a Wonderful New Years and
My Hope for you all
is you that you
are Blessed with
 All You Hold Dear
through out this
Brand New Year!
Hugs Jill
I am Joining

Winter White Christmas Table Scape

Winter White Table Scape ~ Jill McCall Feathers and Flight
Hello Dear Blogging Friends!
So I thought I would try Something New
to share with all of you!
 Winter White Table Scape ~ Jill McCall Feathers and Flight
My Inspiration came from one of the Photo's on Pinterest.
(Pinterest....A Far too Addicting Sight don't you Think!)
Thank You Cindy of My Romantic Home for the Inspiration

So off I went gathering up
Apothecary Jars, Silver Trays, Putz Houses
and Bottle Brush Trees.
Really anything I could Think of from my Vast Collection
and some Finds on Christmas Clearance... Already?
Le Shopko,One of my Favorite Boutiques
was Where I found these Little Putz Houses.
My Daughter Lauren Gave me
my Gorgeous Focal Point,
The Steepled Church
with the colored Mercury Glass
last Christmas.

When My Son Sawyer Came Home after School
He came in to see what I was up to. 
He amazed me by saying 
"Hey Mom..I Really Like this. It's Just Like a Snow Globe."
You could have Knocked Me over with a Feather! This is the Child who just Shrugs His Shoulders at all the Things I am Doing and say
"Its Ok Mom....Can I play my XBox"!
Made my Day that's for sure!

I do like to Entertain
and Wish I could do it more.
But this Christmas,
this Table is set Special for just Us.

The Kids Might Say"Oh Mom! Do we have to! You expect us to Sit up Straight and Actually have Manners! Lol! I know better......They Like it. We have had some of the Most Wonderful Conversations Ever when we Sit Down to a Dinner With all of the Trimmings Like this.

 And Yes it Snowed on my Table
and all over the Carpet as Well!
But isn't it Pretty?!
I had to rethink the Snow Under the Glasses...
It stuck to the bottom and I could see someone
Being Unhappy when it Ended Up in their Soup!
