56th Table Top Tuesday

Welcome to the 56th Table Top Tuesday.  I am so happy that you've joined us and you always inspire me with your unbelievable creativity.  I look forward to  all of your new vignettes.

After being gone for over a week I'm just doing laundry and cleaning.  However I did decide to change a few of the lamps and table displays around in the familyroom as I was dusting.


This small table sits between two leather chairs and previously had a tall buffet type lamp on it.  I thought this lamp was a more appropriate size, and decided to move this little floral arrangement next to it. 

Just a little bit of color between two dark leather pieces.

The rooster lamp got moved to this side of the sofa for a change.

 A small dish of ivy and a candle is about all this small table can hold.

I brought in a yellow lamp that was in the closet for the end table on the other side of the sofa.  It's smaller and lighter in color.  Better for spring.

My anniversary clock my DH gave me for our 25th is one of my prized possessions, so of course it has to be close by.  A little birdnest announces that Spring is here.

Much better for a change, and now I think all of the lamps are in proportion to the room. (No, the drapes aren't done yet, that's still on the to do list.  lol)

I am so happy you stopped by, I always look forward to your visits.  Be sure to link up below, and visit as many of the participants as you can.  I know you will find tons of eye candy and inspiration.

  6. Your room looks very light and bright, Marty! Aren't you glad you had that lamp in the closet? I'm starting to think I should never throw away a lamp--I can always find a place to put one!

    I really like the small flower arrangement you have between the leather chairs. Very simple and elegant, but bright and pretty.

    It's been a long time since I joined Tabletop Tuesday; I'm glad I made it today! Thank you for being such a great hostess.

  10. Marty,
    Such a refreshing look by just switching out the lamps and decor items. Lovely vignettes. My favorite is with the little bird's nest! So glad you're feeling relaxed back in your own home. Spring cleaning still continues On Crooked Creek. Perhaps a new Table Top by next week!
    Fondly,

  15. Hi Marty- I love your changes. I love to tweak my stuff all the time too! I have a small elephant lamp on a faux book that I feel needs a little more something! I'm sure it needs a thin book like you have. Now I know what to look for. Your living room looks great! That's quite a mirror you have! Liz

  61. Marty,

    Love your new boots. I've been looking for some cute ones too. I found some last summer at a yard sale and didn't get them. Don't know why I didn't - have kicked myself several times for not buying them. Oh well.

    I have a magnifying glass just like the one you bought at the sale. My daughter got them a few years ago - one for me and one for her. It's identical.
