Time Is Running Out Table

The end of the year is almost here...can you believe it? The years seem to go faster the older I get. But I am not complaining - I am grateful because the alternative to "getting old is denied to many."

Pat wanted to set a table that would remind all of us that 2016 is almost gone. Here's what she came up with:

The place setting

Flatware is "Fluence" by Oneida - it is my absolute favorite stainless flatware. I love the sleek, seamless handles.

Pat started the place setting with a silver gift ornament

Dinnerware is "Blue Frost" by Lenox (2201-2016). The platinum band goes well with the stainless steel.

Where it came from:
Blue Placemat - from Bed, Bath, and Beyond last year
Silver and Glass Charger - "Silver Luster" from Pier 1 this season
Dinnerware - "Blue Frost" by Lenox from eBay and Replacements
Flatware - "Fluence" Stainless Steel by Oneida (2007-2009) from Replacements
Stainless Steel Water and Martini/Wine Goblet - from Pier 1 last year but still available
Napkin - Handmade by Pat
Silver Gift Ornament - from Pier 1 three years ago
Silver Hour Glasses - from Ross several years ago

We will be joining the following Blog parties this week:
