Met Monday - Changing and Redoing


Much thanks to Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch for hosting this fun party. Be sure to check out her post to see what she's created and a list of all the other participants.

I am so ready for spring, so time to change out the winter decor in the living/dining room. This is the winter look.




Now for a little spring look. I am adding some blue/white and yellow. This room gets a lot of light, so excuse the glare.


Just changing out the pillows and accessories makes a huge change in the feel of the room.




I've changed out the brass lamps for white ones that I found at Gw. I love having more white in this room.


This is the end table I showed you last Table Top Tuesday.


Well, as usual with pulling out all the blue and white, I fluffed a little more and changed it up a little.


I added a tassel to the lamp to glam it up and placed the wonderful little bottle that my friend Ceekay made me next to it.


I put my little lady under a cloche and added some pearls to my granddaughters picture. I like this better.


Be sure to come by for Table Top Tuesday and I will show you some of the other tables. I really like the different dining room arrangement I made. (Such a tease!)

Thanks so much for stopping by. I really do appreciate your visits.

  53. The addition of blue and white always seems to perk things up, no? Your tabletop vignette gets prettier every time you tweak it.

    I may join you tomorrow if I can come up with something. I have been shoving furniture around today.

  56. Love the change out. I am a summer person so I have a hard time putting away the summer colors come fall. Some just hang around all year. Blue and yellow is one of my favorite color combos. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment.

  58. Hi Marty...I commented on your post last night...and today I don't see it. This is happening a lot to me lately...not sure what I am doing wrong..but...What a said...more or less, it that you had inspired me to do a "tabletop" and that I wanted to try it. I did..and I was happy..sort of, with the outcome. It was fun!
    I am always in awe of everything you do! Simply gorgeous...
    I need to practice! :)

  59. Spring.....It means change, and I love how much you changed the look of the room with a few simple things. Yellow and blue is one of my favorite color combinations!
