“Prints “ of love

26439de75691057eI’m just gonna lay this out for you. I was reading a book the other day and ran across what I thought was a wonderful idea . A new family traditions perhaps. I won’t get into what the book was about, but on holidays the family had a “special” table cloth. It  was white linen. but…… Let me tell you what made it so special. The table was set with plates and on each side of the plates were hand prints with the name of the person and the date. Each person that joined this family was “hand printed.” Every holiday this table cloth came out as a reminder of many wonderful occasions this family had spent together. I don’t know, but it just struck me as a wonderful idea. Something that could be handed down. Friends as well as family were included in this. Every time  the table cloth was brought out, the family would remember the set of prints that might now be missing it’s owner. I love this idea, and I think that I am going to start a table cloth of “remembrance”. Now if you are all about “fancy” this might not be the thing of you. It might seen a little childish, but I am at heart a mother that loves having all her kids around. Long ago they hand printed my heart so why not my table…  Simply_me


Quote of the Day: “The old believe everything; the middle aged suspect everything: the young know everything.”


  1. This is an incredible idea, I've told the kids and we all love it, I have Aarons handprints, I can reproduce them on the cloth and he'll be our first one, love it...thanks. I think it will start something in my family too lol!

  2. The tablecloth is a cute idea. I like making stepping stones with concrete - I place the kids hands in the concrete or their feet.

  3. Our tablecloth would have fist prints!! LOL!

  4. I have a poem and on both sides of it is niki's hand prints the poem
