39th Table Top Tuesday

Welcome to the 39th Table Top Tuesday.  I am so thrilled you've joined us.  Be sure to visit all the wonderful ladies that have linked up.  You will be amazed at all the fabulous eye candy.

As I showed you in yesterday's post, I moved some furniture around, and so of course that meant some new vignettes.

  I am so happy to have the extra sofa out of the living room and my two chairs in front of the window. 

I kept the table decor really simple.  Just a few marble eggs and a pic of my daughters family on an easel.  A faberge egg plate for the final touch.

Remember this pretty picture that I found at Ross.

I loved it and at this incredible price, I just had to have it.

I think it is perfect to finish off this corner of the room.  I also placed the plant stand that I got in Calif. on our girls trip and a plant in the corner.

So fun to change things around a little and have a whole new look.

I'm also still having a ball with the free art and my printer.  I did like the whimsical rooster pic that I had here, but this is such a pretty scene with the sun shining in on these two, I just had to print it out.

Fits right in with my rooster tray and the rooster tin with fruit.  Just playing and having fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.  Be sure to link up below and be sure to check out all of the participants.


  1. Everything looks lovely, Marty!
    Thank you for hosting.

    And, I have something embarrassing to confess to you. I asked Matt to mail your pretty spoons that you won in my giveaway, but then forgot to show him where they were (tucked away safely). I was shocked when I just found them in their drawer - I had thought they'd been sent. I am so so sorry -- they are on their way to you now! Apologies for the terribly long delay. Hope you understand.


  2. I always love everything you do in your home!!! You have such elegant taste!

    Thanks for sharing and also hosting TT!

  3. Marty my new bedroom bench is serving as a table of sorts. *Smiles*

    I am loving your new arrangement in your living room. The frame and easel is my favorite. I'm going to try and duplicate this elegant look you created. Thank you for the beautiful inspiraton my friend.

    Happy week!
    ~Melissa :)

  4. Marty,
    I love your changes. The dog print was a deal. Love that price tag. Very pretty!
    Thanks for hosting.

  5. Marty, the plant stand fills in that corner nicely. Love the rooster print and I still love the dog print.

  6. Marty, I just love your pictures! They are so simple but elegant!

  7. Looks beautiful Marty. Love the rooster print out and you really got a wonderful deal on the picture from Ross. The chairs look great in front of the window. I have the exact same planter! I bought mine in SC while I was living there. Mine of course is a reproduction, but I asked why it had the funny little drawers and the lady told me it was a reproduction of an antique wig stand used in the 1800's and the little drawers were for the pins. I took the story and ran with it, I'm really not sure, sometimes I use mine as a planter, I have used it to display antique hats, just whatever I feel like that day! Thanks for hosting.

  8. I love the changes, Marty! Just beautiful!

  9. Hi Marty,

  11. It should always be about "playing and having fun", Marty! : ) Love that dog print. Guess what came today? My bunny prints! Now I just have to find frames. I have two that might work, but I may just wait and see if I can find something at Goodwill or on clearance somewhere. Thanks for hosting. I'll have my link up shortly!

  26. I had to go back and read the previous post about the living room first. Being out of town last week put me behind everywhere. It looks wonderful!! I want to change out BOTH of my sofas to neutral ones like yours.

  31. Marty, I love how you mix such great 'finds' with such exquisite pieces! It is all so lovely! The colors in your home are so rich and inviting...I love earth tones! Thank you for hosting! Christie

  32. Hi Marty! I'm so excited to actually have something to link up to your party this week! Thanks so much for hosting! :-)

  33. Marty, your one sofa living room looks beautiful! I also scrolled down to see yesterday's post, and your family room looks so nice. I can't believe the deal you got on that wonderful picture of the dogs! With all of the masterpieces you are creating, you will soon be like me - out of wall space! Your pretty eggs make such a lovely display on your table. laurie

  34. I love your roosters in there lovely old world European style...Besides loving roosters (see my "country visitors" post last week) the rich colors of the rooster artwork reminds me of a wonderful exhibition of 14th century lost Dutch paintings I saw years ago...Wonderful memories.

    I am joining your party for the first time this week...Thank you for hosting.

  42. This is an elegant and pretty arrangement, Marty. Don't you love changing up rooms? I really love your art prints, and the easel is a show stopper. Very nicely done!


  43. Your room is absolutely stunning. I love the colors and the everything about the way you have it decorated. Of course, being a rooster-holic, I love the rooster prints. Gorgeous!

  45. Hi Marty~
    I was thinking of joining your party today- but in my post it also mentions that I will be hosting a Holiday themed Feathered Nest Friday party... would that be okay to link up or is that a no-no? Let me know if it's okay to link up and I will join in- otherwise, maybe next week!! btw. Your new dog print is such a find and looks great where you placed it! :)

  46. Marty I always love how you decorate that little corner in your kitchen. It is always so cozy. Happy Thanksgiving, Joan

  47. Marty,
    Your gorgeous home is 'eye candy'! I'm adoring the changes in your living room. . .the two chairs in front of the window and your lovely lamp look so inviting.
    The new photos you've made are incredible! Of course, I'm still smitten with your rabbit print. Hm~m~m~m . . .maybe I'll have to hint for the upcoming Season? Thank you for another all inspiring post! Oh, I do enjoy your visits, also!

  48. I like changing things around as well. I like the colors in your room they look both cheery and sophisticated.

  49. Marty, I really like the new living room arrangement. The chairs do look so nice in front of the window and the tabletop theme is so simple but I think it sets it off perfectly. Your place always looks so warm and inviting....and obviously you like to "play" with your things just like I do! lol
    Elaine :)

  50. Hi Marty! Everything looks lovely as it always does. I am a new follower and a newbee blogger. Thanks so much for being such a gracious hostess.

  53. My golly, Marty, I just can't get enough of your home. Awesome.

    Did you read your email ... you WON our Rooster giveaway.

    Have a lovely Thanksgiving holiday.
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  54. What a great deal on the dog picture. That's classic.

  55. Marty, thanks for your info on the rooster and cows prints. Who would ever have known that you created them on a printer? Because of your recent post on rearranging bookshelves, I have spent the morning doing just that. I'm pleased with the difference but I am so slow to get it to that point. I always choose a day when I'm home alone to start pulling everything out otherwise anyone would think I had lost it for sure!
    Love your new furniture arrangement. I have learned over the years that when I avoid overcrowding everything shows to its best advantage.
    I really enjoy your blog. It is such a favorite!

  56. Thanks for hosting Marty- I always enjoy your party! All linked up! :)

  57. Marty, your arrangements look great, it adds such a fresh look to move them around like that, you really have such a creative eye. I do love that new picture from Ross, that frame is fantastic!

    Thanks again for hosting this party, it's one of my favs.

  58. All changes are so fine and good looking ... A very fresh look to the home. I love it. and you did it in a very fab way
