52nd Table Top Tuesday & A Giveaway

Welcome to the 52nd Table Top Tuesday.  Wow, it's our 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!!!!  I have had so much fun over the last year seeing all of your wonderful vignettes.  I thought we should celebrate with a Give-Away.  More about that at the end of the post.  Now inspire me again with all of your fabulous creations.

I've had the top of the entertainment center decorated the same way for ages.  I finally decided it was time for a couple of changes.


The birdcage stayed because it is so big I don't have anywhere else to put it.  I moved the swan to the center and elevated it on a bed of faux ivy.


On this side I grouped some of my larger urns and pitchers.


While I was at it I thought it was time to rearrange a few things on the bookshelves.  I put the old crank telephone on the top shelf, and then edited the other shelves for a cleaner look.


I also edited a few things on these shelves.  Sometimes less is more. lol





I'm having so much fun with Mosaic Maker, that I just had to do one of the hutch and what's on the shelves.  If you want to find out about Mosaic Maker and How I Did My New Header, see my second post back that is titled Answers.

Ok, now for the good part.  The Give-Away.  I know so many of you love blue and white and when I saw these candlesticks, I thought that would be a perfect gift.  They will also hold a pillar candle.  I think the designs are so pretty, I hope you will like them.


So, now for the rules.  None.  No hoops to jump through.  Just leave me a comment and if you would like to follow, just leave a second comment telling me you are a follower.  I will announce the winner next week on Table Top Tuesday.  You can enter until Feb. 19th at 5PM.  I will use the random number generator to determine the winner.  Thanks and I hope you win.

I thank you all so much for always linking to Table Top Tuesday and being such a wonderful inspiration to me and everyone else.  You constantly amaze me with all of your talent.

I am linking to:  Winter Blues Wednesday @ DIY By Design

OK, let the party begin.  Be sure to link up below and thanks for stopping by.

  3. Marty, I love your new Mosaic, I tried working on it a little last night but didn't have any luck. Maybe another try tonight, obviously I'm doing something wrong. Your Mosaic built around your entertainment center is fantastic. Thanks for sharing.

  98. Hi Marty, I have a question about inlinkz. I have been using linky tools which is not working at all right now and of course my party is tonight. What size are your pics. I don't want them too big and inlinkz is different from linky. I guess that is military time on their format. I don't know why they use that, but anyway I will have to switch.

    Thanks so much, Kim
