An evening  of  silver and gold to Celebrate and bring in a New Year.

To Dream or Wish to Pray and Hope

To think about the time we have .Do we use it wisely or is it always elusive and just slips thru our fingers?

Time tick tock tick tock can I grasp it and hold it it within my hands?in my mind?

Do I have enough ?or not enough?Is it here now or have I already Lost it?

I ponder time alot. Is it well spent? Did we have to earn it?Did we use it wisely or candidly waste it?

Did we march to our own Time or walk a different path in and thru time?

Did we laugh enough this year, love as often as we could?

Were we filled with envy  and pain and didn't allow the Time to grieve or heal well?

Did we spend enough time with our children give them quality Time or stick them in front of a tv  for time together?

Did we use our time well enough for our finances did we enjoy our off Time to play or we too exhausted?

How much Time did we spend complaining,worrying,fretting about something?

So as this year winds down to a close I think about the time and events happening in my life this past year.How I so felt lost and out of control that I wasnt doing things right or it wasnt the right Time.

But in reality we never have enough Time.To Love play be happy or spend the right Time with someone we LOVE

So my thoughts turn to this. I don't make New Years resolutions because frankly I never keep them. But I am going to give myself the gift of Time. To reflect on all the gifts we have ,all the beauty that surrounds us the wonders of Life as it unfolds 

Its been a pretty bad year for lots of us I can't believe some of the stuff I had to endure this year.But with Time I got thru them and became stronger. As I know you did too.

This year forget the resolutions we aren't going to keep and make but doing something better. 

Give yourself some greatly earned Time.Time to relax Time to reflect,Time to unwind and destress after all the holiday stuff is over.Time for that new game to play with your grandson you bought him for Christmas, Time to have that perfect Tea party with  your little niece.Time to take it all in and ENJOY. So my wish to all of you in blogland is Have a great Time this year and may 2016 be the best Time you have ever had Happy New Year to all of you Im joining Between Naps on the porch . Confessions of a serial do it your selfer, design enthusiasm.and so many wonderful blogs out there.Love Susie


  1. Beautiful Silver and Gold display, Hope you have a Healthly and Sweet New Year. Roy

  2. Oh wow Susie! This is the most beautiful New Year's tablescape I have ever seen. Firstly you have a gorgeous plate stack, then all the details with the timepieces. Wow oh wow! I love that runner. Does it have printed clock faces on it? Where did you get it, if I might ask. I love it. Wishing you all the best in the coming New Year. Love, your blogging friend, Valerie

    1. Dear Val thanks for the fabulous compliment you truly lift my spirits. I spent New Years eve at the Space Needle although I was working I really just went to watch the most fantastic fireworks display I ever saw. but boy is it cold here in Seattle.Is it that cold at your house? Happy New Years my friend.love Susie

  3. Happy New Year Susie! Your time-scape table setting is perfect for bringing in the new year.The use of white and gold combined with so many elements of time, from clock faces to timepieces, all are wonderfully incorporated into this beautiful tablescape. Kudos dear lady, kudos!

    I did not even know today was New Years Eve until this afternoon. Talk about losing track of time......

    The only thing I really want to make sure I do in the coming year is to love my family and keep them close. My children are still hurting from the loss of their father as am I. Even twenty-nine years after our divorce my feelings have overwhelmed me.

    May the new year bring you happiness and good health..... Hugs, Candy
