64th Table Top Tuesday

Welcome to the 64th Table Top Tuesday.  I so look forward to seeing all of your gorgeous vignettes.  Thanks so much for joining the party.

About once a month when I am cleaning, I treat my counters with a sealer after a really thoroughly scrubbing, and of course that's always an opportunity to create a couple of new vignettes.

The corner section of the back counter is always a fun place to play.  I thought a little GW silver tray was a great backdrop for my pig to move over here. 


This little pig just makes me smile with his dirty nose and feet.  He's flanked by a pepper jar and another jar that I found at GW and filled with split peas, and of course he needed a flower.


I added the rooster candlestick along with my wine carrier that holds a yellow check napkin, some flatware and a single sunflower.  The wheat adds texture and of course my little french chef always has to play.


Bright and cheery for spring and my ongoing obsession with yellow.


On the left side of the counter the little lime hen got all dressed up with some ribbon and found her favorite spot on the counter.


The right side of the counter has my favorite cloche, another silver tray, demijohn and of course another rooster.

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

  3. Thank you so much for hosting Marty!! Lovely refreshed vignettes you created in your kitchen. I too recreate vignettes while cleaning, especially since all the pieces are already moved anyways. I especially am liking your basket-weave covered bottle =)

    Hope you enjoyed a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!!

  49. Darling little pig.. even with his muddy snout and all! LOL! I just love that rooster candlestick! Soooo cute! What do you treat your granite counters with. I didn't know one could do it that often. Maybe I should pick up my counter maintenance a notch or two!! Take care and have a great week! Hugs!

  50. Marty,
    Your pig makes me smile, also! How adorable he is!!! Your countertops are luminious, indeed. Would you share the name brand of sealer? The silver tray makes quite a nice reflection of your lovely vignette. Thank you for hosting this wonderful meme each week. Yours is one of my favorites!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat
