25th Table Top Tuesday - New Kitchen Vignette


Welcome to the 25th Table Top Tuesday. Wow, I can't believe that we are at 25 already. You guys always have the neatest vignettes to show. I can hardly wait to see them all this week.

My kitchen island has had this arrangement on it for a few weeks, and I love the old world look, but since I found so many neat things in Calif., I just had to play.


So I started playing with some of my new finds. I love this huge orange sphere. It looks like a jar, but it really isn't.


Isn't this yellow Italian pottery piece just wonderful. I filled it with faux fruit and then I put the small green planter behind it with the lime ball I found. Mix in some grapes, ivy and some flowers and this is so fun.


What do you think? It's so much fun to play with new toys.


I found so many fun things that I had to play some more.


I switched out the planter for a basket.


This is the napkin that she gave me when we visited Barbara Cheatley's. They had so many wonderful things. I would have bought a whole set of these napkins, but this was the last one, so she gave it to me.


Doesn't it look nice with my other old world vignettes.


When we were at Karen's house she gave Ceekay and I a whole bag of wine corks.


I put them in a hurricane I made from finds at the Dollar Tree and placed it beside my wine basket. I think it looks great there.


Thank you all so much for stopping by. I always look forward to your visits.

Be sure to link in below so we can see all of your fabulous vignettes and table tops.

  10. Marty, I love the vignette you set up both ways. The first with the oval planter and the basket way, too. You always do a good job of creating new designs. Love the new orange finial thing.

  12. Marty, The finial gives the needed height to your gorgeous arrangements. I like both versions, but with the addition of that yellow napkin, I think the basket is my favorite. That new lime ball of yours is really unique. You find the neatest stuff! Thanks for hosting this fun party once again.
    hugs, Sue

  13. This is an art form that I have a really hard time with, but if I keep studying your great tablescapes, maybe one day I'll get it right.

    Beautiful.

  14. O, your kitchen looks like a show room kitchen. Just beautiful.
    I've never had much on my countertops other than cooking "stuff" that we use nearly every day.

    I need to find a spot, tho, and "make something pretty" happen. :)

    You are so very good at it.

    I love you kitchen. I would just sit in that room and admire it all day long! You have great taste and a great eye!
