Tabletop Tuesday - Den Coffee Table


Hello, Dear Ones and welcome to Tabletop Tuesday hosted by our Most Wonderful Marty at A Stroll Thru Life! Make sure you pop in to her blog to see the many decorated tabletops today.

I'm showing you my coffee table in my den today.
Just a simple little vignette.



I have a pair of the sweetest little birds perched upon some spare bark pieces. Aren't they the sweetest? :)


Next I've placed a large pottery bowl we purchased in Orvieto, Italy many years ago upon my hostess tray.


See the pretty hand painted details? I love this and my Mr. Precious picked it out!


Now look at the lid. Oh, I think it's just so pretty! Now this most precious piece of pottery is of the color that matches absolutely nothing! So in my tiny decorating mind I tell myself - since it matches absolutely nothing it has to go with absolutely anything I want it to go with. So here it sits in it's blazen gloryness!


Now since I'm the most creative one, I've made an arrangement of faux flowers that are just blooming their tiny hearts out for me. These pretty blooms never wilt, they never die and they never drop their petals! So, what do I say? I love my fauxs and my fauxs love me. Yes sirree bob!! :)


Even though it's a little dreary outside, I will have a burst of color on my coffee table in my den. Now I do want you to see how clever I am - the color of the little birds do match the colors in my pottery piece. See?

Now pop on over to Dear Marty's blog for lots of eye candy!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~





Wear You Love Like Heaven

Color and sky brush and blue
Scarlet fleece changes you
Crimson ball sinks from view

Wear your love like heaven
Wear your love like heaven
Wear your love like heaven
Lord kiss me once more
Fill me with song
Kiss me once more
So I may, so I may

Wear my love like heaven
Wear my love like heaven
Wear my love like heaven
Color sky heaven alic
Color sky rose carithe
Arisari and crimson

Lord kiss me once more
Fill me with song
Kiss me once more
So I may, so I may

Lord kiss me once more
Fill me with song
Kiss me once more
So I may, so I may

Cannot believe what I see
All I have wished for will be
All of our race proud and free

Lord kiss me once more
Fill me with song
Kiss me once more
So I may,
~sung by Donovon

  8. I really like this vignette! That beautiful bowl is to die for and it gives a pop of color!

    The table is unique, I like the cane (?) bottom. The chair shown in the pictures of our master bedroom has the cane back like the bottom of your table!

  22. Sheila,

    Oh my goodness your tablescape is gorgeous! I just love the pottery with the faux flowers (I use faux flowers too-it's a great way to enjoy flowers without all the fuss:). Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog and for your suggestion. I am going to try enlarging my photos and see how it goes. I always appreciate suggestions and I thank you for making this one:). I look forward to visiting your blog again soon!

  33. Hi Shelia
    Your tabletop is so simple and elegant. I love the ceramic pot you got in Italy. I have a friend who takes tours to Orvieto several times each year. It sounds like the most wonderful little village.

  34. All those pretty things will be replaced with Fisher Price toys when the little one arrives for a visit which will be a good thing:) My house is decorated by a 3 yr old and on my table right now are several cars and trucks. Honestly I forget what I use to have on the tables in our den???

  44. Hi Shelia,

    You really ARE the creative one, aren't you? And the clever one as well ... when I got to "of the color that matches absolutely nothing!," I laughed out loud. We've all had something THAT color (usually a gift from a well-intentioned friend or relative).

    Your fauxs love you ... and WE do to!

    Warmest regards,
    Bill

  48. Hi Shelia,
    Your tablescape on the coffee table is gorgeous. I love the birds. They bring such inspiration for Spring. The pottery is beautiful and the colors are gorgeous together.

    I had that same coffee table in square at one time, along with the end tables and sofa table. Your home is stunning and I just love your decorating style.

    Have a great evening sweets.
    Love to you, Celestina Marie

  50. Good morning Sheila, Your bit of sunshine comes through in your vignette. I love your flowers that never die. Go faux!!! The pottery bowl is lovely and displayed so sweet. You know me, I adore the birds. Matching is key to the whole picture. You are genius at pretty decor. I mean it.

    Have a happy sunshine day.

  60. I truly loved this! Oh Spring is coming and has come to your beautiful table! The birds/glassware are exquisite.
    I thought about this week when our baby came. I am so glad you get to expereince this great joy! The other grandma is a first time grandma and it is always such a enormous blessing. (I prayed for you and your daughter at the beginning and so pleased all is well now.) God luck!

  65. That pottery is just about the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen! Love the little birds too. Since nothing in my house goes with anything else in my house, I agree with you - that pottery goes with anything and everything. I really do think something that beautiful makes a statement on its own and doesn't need to match anything. Can you tell I am smitten with that? laurie

  66. Very pretty :)
