26th Table Top Tuesday - Old World Vignettes


Welcome to the 26th Table Top Tuesday. I am so thrilled you are here and I can't wait to see all of your wonderful creations. I need some new inspiration and you guys always come through.

You saw some of these pics on my Summer Yellow post, but here are some closer looks.

Of course when you find great treasures, you do HAVE to play. I redid the top of the buffet in the breakfast room. This is where I have my computer on one end, so I created a new vignette on the other end.


The lime green sphere I found at Tai Pan in Calif., a yellow and orange jar with some sunflowers and a bee skeep.


Love seeing the flowers as I work on the computer. Nice arrangement for a change.


I had to play in the living room too. Love my new vase with lime green and orange. Some more sunflowers seem to go with all the orange and yellow in the sofa pillows.


A wicker mat under the tray for some texture, a candle and a transferware dish with apples complete this side of the coffee table.


Some decorating books, an old library table globe and the vase finish off the vignette.


I found this jar at Rogers Gardens, and love the colors.


So much fun to play and change things up a little.


Thanks so much for stopping by. I always look forward to your visits.

Be sure to link up below, so we can see all of your wonderful vignettes and creations.

  4. You inspire me to dig out my sunflowers and get them arranged. I found tons of stemmed one (not arranged) at yard sales this summer. You have a knack I don't have though, you know how to arrange them in the vase to look great. Mine always looks like I just jammed them into the vase which is of course exactly what I did:)

    Thanks for sharing. Where did the throw pillows on sofa (floral) come from?? Lovely.

  8. I love that mottled brown/blue vase!!! Sunflowers are so happy- I took mine out last week and stuck them in a basket. I cannot wait for fall and cooler weather. Your arrangement on the cocktail table is so pretty. The mat underneath the tray gave it a lot of depth. :-)

  16. You certainly have the knack for putting together the prettiest and warm vignettes! I so love the one on your buffet. I am very fond of bee skeeps. The colors in your home are warm and welcoming! I could use a little decor help!
    I love your use of natural mats... they add a great earthy element that really makes what you have on them flow together!
    I'm off to visit other tabletoppers!
