Time For . . .

I have been visiting with my 90 year old Dad in Illinois for a week and haven't had time to spend much time on my blog but I decided to feature a little time with my Dad. 


He has this beautiful clock that still keeps perfect time (after I added a new battery). I was planning a New Years Day dinner for him and some of our family members and I wanted to use this clock as our centerpiece and titled our dinner theme "Time For A New Year."









Although we did not eat on fine China, the time together was priceless. 








The pieces are all Pfaltzgraff Trousseau. The plates are ivory with pink and purple roses with a gray band.





My husband did bake a delicious ham for the dinner.






I hope you were able to spend time with your family or friends to welcome the new year.


Thanks for stopping by - Judy

Glad you got to spend time with your Dad, Judy.
Special moments far outweigh fancy dishes:)
that clock is a beauty and the ham your hubby made looks delicious.
Looking forward to visiting you through out 2012.

What a pretty table! For years I set my Christmas table with my Yorktowne set. I loved it so much! Your table is lovely and I agree the time you spend with your family is priceless!
By the way, I am moving to IL in one week! O'Fallen area....
Blessings My Friend,
