20th Table Top Tuesday - Treasures From The Sea


Welcome to the 20th Table Top Tuesday. I am having so much fun seeing all the fabulous vignettes you guys create. I can hardly wait to see what you show for today.

Recently I won a whole package of fabulous seaside goodies from Boogie Board Cottage. I decided to do a vignette with them in my bedroom. I love all the fabulous shells and goodies she included in the giveaway. This is the vignette I originally did.


I've seen so many pretty jars decorated with shells, that I decided to switch out the grass for an apothecary jar filled with treasures from the sea.






Shells, starfish and of course pearls.


Doesn't it look pretty for a change. Love the seaside look and so refreshing for the bedroom.


Ok, so I am also promoting the "Summer Cloche Party". Don't forget that you can use your apothecary jars too.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits. Grab the "Cloche Party" button on my sidebar and get ready for the party on July 16th.

  2. Marty, I love the fact that you added pearls to the jar with the shells. Just like you found them in an oyster shell. Great summer vignette.

  3. What a pretty way to use your gift. As my Step-father used to say, "Give a woman a seashell, and she'll decorate a bathroom". How right he was!

  27. Thank you for stopping by & leaving a sweet July 4th comment. Hope you got the free Patriotic images I had posted in both posts. LOVE those shells in that tablescape! I am soooooooooo into shells & mermaids right now. Are you staying cool out there? We had such hot weather but, got lucky with the hurricane pushing much needed rain north to us. Have a great week.

  28. Marty, I love your beach themed vignette. Especially the jar with the shells and pearls.
    The colors go so well with your tabletopper, which I coveted on another post.

  29. Hi! Your table looks so pretty! I love the colors and how you used the pearls. I don't get to keep much on my tabletops at home these days with a Saint Bernard puppy barreling through the house. :)

    This is my first time joining the party. I hope my non-traditional tabletop is ok (oceanfront picnic). It's my favorite table to decorate in all the world. :) My hubby appreciated the time I took to put this vignette together once he spotted another couple a ways down the beach balancing pizza boxes on their laps.

    Thanks so much for hosting and enjoy the week!

  40. Marty, blogger has been so weird! I tried to leave a comment yesterday and I couldn't and I had so many this morning when I went to check them but my dashboard said I only had 4! Oh well, not much we can do about it.

    Thanks for having me to your tabletop party. I love the new arrangement with the apothecary jar.

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

  49. I truly like the interplay between the fabric on the table and your accessories. Too often a pattern is repeated and becomes to thematic...

    The floral pattern encased on the beach blue cloth are so playful with the shells!

    I really do love it!
