47th Table Top Tuesday

Welcome to the 47th Table Top Tuesday.  By now I know you all have your Christmas decor down and have been busy rearranging your vignettes.  I can't wait to see them all.

With the Christmas put away, this is what was left of the kitchen corner display.


Then I got on a mission to use some of the silver I have.  I was so fortunate to get a lot of my Mom's and most of my MIL's to add to all that I already had, so I NEED to use it. I see you guys sprinkle it all over the house, so I am on a mission. lol


A silver and crystal coaster holds the lime ball and a silver water pitcher holds some ivy for starters.


Then a pretty silver bowl to hold the faux fruit.




A small silver plate for the cheese and grapes. 





Ok, this is looking good.  I like the sparkle.


But I just couldn't stop there.


When I found this wonderful huge tray I thought it should replace the basket tray.


Looks pretty sparkly to me. 


After a couple of days I decided that was just a little too much sparkle and went back to this, however---


 some silver in this corner is great.


 My rooster cloche with apples and lemons and the lime rooster are fun.


 Add a plate, wheat, another rooster and some cork fruit and this works for me.


 Now I have a little sparkle all over the kitchen.


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

  2. I honestly don't like silver that much and would never have thought to put it in a more casual setting, but as all things you do...it is lovely.

  8. The silver tray looks fabulous back there. I love all the lime greeb too. Your remark reminds me of a bumper sticker I recently saw that said "I like Shiny Things" how about that?

  10. Marty,
    WoW! You really have that WoW factor now! The silver accessories immediately caught my eye as you switched out the items. I love how silver captures the light and then releases it throughout the space. I know that each time you view those heirloom pieces that warm memories of your loved ones will fill you with radiant JOY! Thank you for hosting this wonderful meme! I've dressed up the built~in china cabinet with a winter beverage center in honor of our freshly fallen SNOW!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  11. Hi Marty...

    Girlfriend, I am loving all that pretty "sprinkling" of silver around your home! Seriously!!! I love all the pretty silver that you added to your kitchen corner vignette...I just think that the contrast between the woven tray, etc. with the silver is sooo pretty and it lends lots of interest to the vignette! You did GOOD, Girlfriend!!! I do like the woven tray with that vignette best! I remember looking at your post where you added the silver to that new shelf that you put up in your kitchen...the pretty silver butter dish...I loved that look! You really do have a fabulous collection of silver, my friend...and I really am enjoying seeing it out and about at your place!!! Thanks for sharing more of your beautiful home and that pretty silver with us!!!

    Love ya,
    Chari

    I could not help but notice two things...your small rooster painting (yummy) and your antique scale. (double yummy) Is the scale new (to you)? Dont remember seeing it. Love them. Hope you're having a great start to your week. Hugs, Barb

    All your vignettes are lovely! You always have such great arrangements. I love how you're using the silver pieces. They really add sparkle. Thanks for your sweet comments on my floral arrangement. It took all of 3 of 4 minutes to throw it together and I really love the look of it.

    Have a great week!

  45. I really enjoyed seeing your counter top vignettes. I need to do something like that on my countertops - right now they are filled with random stuff from daily life, and not at all attractive!

    I'm hosting my first ever blog party tomorrow, called "Happy Tuesday", and would be honored for you to join in the fun. Thanks for considering it.

    Happy Tuesday!

    Happy Tuesday!

  48. Marty, both corners look great! The silver additions just brighten up the corners and a little elegant bling. I like the way you put the transferware plate in front of the silver tray, and I love the ivy growing out of the silver pitcher. You are so clever, and you always inspire me. I do not like to polish silver, but you sure have me wanting to pull some of mine out. laurie
