" Play Like" Tablesetting...

       First Moma made dolls from bread dough. She called them "well-bread", later after some people were mysteriously eaten by insects, of some sort, she made them of sculpy and changed their names to "play like". Remember when we were kids and we always played like we were someone or played like we were doing something?  Well, I am going to play like I am having a fancy, over the top, rusty, crusty, blingy, totally unreasonable Christmas dinner...just like when we were kids, without the mud pie...maybe.  When explaining it to my sister, I used the grown up word, representation, lol.

Dinner Theme: Wishing You A Season Filled With Memories...                                                                  Old and New!


First the tarnished silver...



held in an old rusty bed spring. The base is made using a galvanized canning jar lid, with porcelain intact. A little nature, with a touch of bling thrown in.  Tattered layers sharing memories of "Prior Lives".

More of the "play like" table setting coming soon! 
A drinking goblet...

I love it. I've been searching for old rusty bedsprings forever and can't find any that are affordable. They can be used in so many ways. I'm also loving that old laundry tub with the rusty base.

Lezlee- I will bring a dish and my dolly and we will be right over. I loved to play like that. Oh and the dishes I could come up with from seed pods and weeds!
I am so excited to see the rest of it!

I noticed that you were reading the Uglies.... I loved them and it was a little too scary and too possible in the future.

Love the juxaposition of the rusty, tarnished and bling.

Great way to display the silver.. I love the old things too with their silent stories.

Debbie said...

How clever! I don't think I'd have ever come up with a use for a rusty bed spring.
