74th Table Top Tuesday

Welcome to the 74th Table Top Tuesday.  We had such fun last week at the "Summe  Cloche Party", if  you missed any of the links, you really need to go back and try to see them all.  I am totally in awe of such inspiration.


It has been way too hot to go out, and then on top of the heat, our A/C went out.  So after a bazillion dollars and a day and half without it, we are back up and running.  Praise the Lord!!!!!  While waiting for the A/C to get repaired, I made a trip to GW.  At least it was cool there and even the car was a blessing.

I found this really cute, aged cherub pillar candleholder, although I thought it looked better for now with some ivy.


 I just taped a piece of floral foam in the candle part and then inserted the ivy.


 The little cherubs are playing musical instruments.  There are three cherubs and they have three different instruments.  For $3.99 I thought it was a fun piece.


 A couple of marble orbs and a glass egg create a very simple vignette.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.  Now link up all your creations, we all want to see.

  7. As always, very nice! Love the crackle on the cherubs. I was very busy last week and sad that I didn't get a chance to link up for the cloche party. I am going to spend some time checking them out. Glad your A/C is fixed. Not much worse than dying of heat.

  17. Nice find, Marty. Glad you have AC again. Sometimes escaping in the car is the best thing to do. Funny, but this winter when we lost heat for an entire day during temps in the teens, I escaped to the car for a little warmth. Guess it works both ways. LOL
    Thanks for hosting! ~ sarah

  24. Honestly Marty...if my AC had gone out last week I think I would have cried...and then I would have driven to the closest hotel and checked in!

  37. Oh you poor thing. That happened to us one summer during a horrible heat wave. We ended up sleeping in our trailer for a couple of nights as it had air and we could just plug it into the house. So glad you got it fixed.

  38. Hi Marty...

    Awww...the cherub candleholder is just adorable, my friend! You always find the prettiest things at GW! I love the look of the ivy with it! Was just wondering...are the little orbs that you have in that vignette...made of shells? Love those! And...of course...I always just swoon when I see your beautiful bird lamp! It's one of the pretties lamps that I've ever seen! Thank you for sharing your new cherub candleholder and vignette with us today, sweet friend!

    Whew...I nearly missed your party today! My ohhh my...I'm not sure whether I'm coming or going over here at my place! Just been busy, busy! Sorry that I was running late for your party today! So happy to hear that you have your A/C back up and running! I can't even imagine going without air in Arizona this time of the year...eeeks!

    Love ya,
    Chari
