Tabletop Tuesday - Den Bookshelves


Hello, Dear Ones! Our Dear Marty at A Stroll Thru Life has taken the torch from our Dear Barb at Grits and Glamour to continue on with Tabletop Tuesday! Thanks to both these Dear Ones! Please pop on over to Marty's blog and you're tiny most gorgeous peepers will be filled with wonder!

Okay, now on with the tops - Marty said anywhere you can poke stuff is a tabletop.
So, I'll be showing you my shelves in the den.
This is the room where Mr. Precious and I spend most of our time! Yep, he loves his big ole TV and I guess I do too. It's like the enlarged pictures in Blogland!Enlarged TV shows! :)


Okie dokie, here we go. We'll start with this cabinet.


Look at the very top - greens! Now I know some folks say, "Don't put any greens atop your cabinets - kitchen tops or otherwise!" Well, I don't listen to some folks and just do what I like to do. I've put greens up on the very top to help and disguise Mr. Precious' tiny little Bose speakers - works too! :) I also poked up there a lidded jar with star fish.


Here I've poked on some books, a fluer de lis, and a bird plate on a stand.


A few months back I copycatted someone and covered some foam board with fabric and poked it at the backs of the shelves! The fabric makes these shelves seem brighter and my things show up a little better and I like it!!


On the second shelf - more books and some little birdies. I even dusted for you! ;)


I call this the 'male side'! Filled with mostly Mr. Precious' books.


Here is the other cabinet flanking the big ole TV! This would be the 'female side'!


Again, more greens and another little bitty Bose speaker.


More books and birds!


Here's a blurry closeup of one of the plates!


Popping on down to the second shelf you'll see more of my books and a clock. Very dear olden clock given to me many years ago on Mother's Day. Oh, please hand me a tissue. Sniff...sniff! It has the most marvelous chime...bing bing bang bong...bong bong bang bing! :)


And to continue with the bird theme, there sits a trio of little blue ones! Tweet tweet!


There you go, my shelf tabletops! Thank you, Dear Marty for being our new hostess for Tabletop Tuesday! Please pop on over to her blog and your tiny most gorgeous peepers will be filled with beauty!
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

You Decorated My Life

All my life was a paper once plain, pure and white
Till you moved with your pen changin' moods now and then

Till the balance was right

Then you added some music, ev'ry note was in place

And anybody could see all the changes in me by the look on my face

And you decorated my life, created a world where dreams area apart

And you decorated my life by paintin' your love all over my heart

You decorated my life

Like a rhyme with no reason in an unfinished song
There was no harmony life meant nothin' to me,
Until you came along

And you brought out the colors, what a gentle surprise

Now I'm able to see all the things life can be
Shinin' soft in your eyes

And you decorated my life,
created a world where dreams are a part

And you decorated my life by paintin' your love all over my heart

You decorated my life
