67th Table Top Tuesday

Thanks so much for joining the 67th Table Top Tuesday.  You guys have come up with such wonderful vignettes and inspiration, I need to redo everything.  Just not enough time.


When I was cleaning house, I thought it was time to redo the vignette on the coffee table and I am in the mood for simple. 


I love this scales, so just some wicker balls seemed perefct.


A simple ivy plant that I havn't killed yet was just the answer also.


Add a couple of decorating books and I said finished.  Summer always seems like less is more.


I also made a couple of changes to the entertainment center, rearranging some of the books and accessories.








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

  52. I love the scales. Always wanted a set but never found a set I liked in my price range, ya, that would be cheap. The warm wicker balls are perfect against the cold metal. Love your coffee table stools, too!
