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
