Tabletop Tuesday

Hello, Dear Ones! I'm playing Tabletop Tuesday today hosted by our own Barb at Grits and Glamour. Make sure you pop in to see her and the talents of so many others as we play with our pretties on top of our tables.

Today I'm bringing you into the den to view a little vignette on one of my favorite tables - an olden Duncan Phyfe drop leaf . Found this little table over twenty years ago at a garage sale in a home for special children. It had been used as their craft table and was a complete mess. I bought it for $25! I was thrilled. Then I took it to have it restored and well, I won't tell you how much the little man charged me! Shame on him! But I love my table!

I've set three of my little cloches here and filled them with springness...

Birds and little puffs of moss balls.

I'll take the tops off the cloches so you can see inside...

These two cloches are actually holding little bells with birds on the top. Aren't they sweet? I believe I found these little bells at Garden Ridge. I'm not sure if this store is anywhere other than Texas, but it's a wonderful place to find goodies.

This is a little bird on a nest with eggs I put together myself. Bought the little bird, nest and eggs and just glued em up! This sits in a little tiny cloche.

Here I have a platter sitting on a chest I found at where else? Marshalls!! I love that place! I hide some of my flatware in that chest! Shh...don't tell anyone! :)

Now I do love many of my things and this platter is one of my loves. I also have two matching plates that I keep on display in my wall units on the other side of the room.

This lamp lives on my little table and I found her at a thrift shop. I added the beads and trim and just love this lamp too!

I want you to see the base! Just look how pretty she is! Look at the textured designs of flowers. I love it! You know I'm a silly! :)

Part of my tabletop vignette is sitting upon a crocheted doily I made about 15 years ago. It's rather large. I just don't crochet as much as I used to. I think blogging has taken over my life! :)

Well, Dear Ones, there you have it ~ my little Tabletop Tuesday contribution.

I've just returned from visiting my daughter, son-in-law and grandbaby to be and had a marvelous time. I have some things I want to share a little later on! Our time is getting closer for a new little family member to enter into this world!! I'm excited!!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Our House

I'll light the fire
You put the flowers in the vase
That you bought today

Staring at the fire
For hours and hours
While I listen to you
Play your love songs
All night long for me
Only for me

Come to me now
And rest your head for just five minutes
Everything is good
Such a cosy room
The windows are illuminated
By the sunshine through them
Fiery gems for you
Only for you

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy
'Cause of you
And our la,la,la, la,la, la, la, la, la, la, la.....

Our house is a very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easyAlign Center
'Cause of you
And Our

I'll light the fire
And you place the flowers in the jar
That you bought today
