109th Table Top Tuesday

Welcome to the 109th Table Top Tuesday.  With all the Spring Fluffing everyone is doing there is so much eye candy to see and so much inspiration. I can't wait to see what's new this week.  I really do try to make the rounds each week and see what everyone links up, however sometimes real life gets in the way and I just can't.  Please forgive me, I appreciate everyone that links up, so when I can't make it around to see your link and comment it really bothers me.  I will continue to do the best I can and I am so happy to see that you are all getting a lot of comments from others that are making the rounds.  Great job you guys.


I showed you all some fun things I found at GW this last week, so of course I had to play and find a home for everything.  Love this little frenchman with his jug and basket of grapes, and cows are always wonderful.  This one has a great crackle patina.


I put them under my rooster cloche with a small cluster of grapes.

I just love his wrinkled brow, looks a lot like me. lol


They fit perfectly and are a fun vignette.  Maybe I need a little straw for the cow.  Hummmmmm


Ok, a little rafia and he looks a little more comfortable.


 Yes, it looks much better.


 Then as I was playing, do you see a change here.


 Yes, the rooster got replaced with the pig.  Do you do that, I change my mind all the time.  Hard to leave well enough alone.  Oh, well, I can always put the white rooster back, but the pig is fun for now.


Someone suggested that I try the wife I found last week with my new frenchman, and they are right, they make a great couple too.  They were probably suppossed to be together, sometimes GW just doesn't get these things all priced and out at the same time.  At any rate, they are fun to play with and she looks amazing with both my frenchmen.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I can't wait to see all your links.  So, let's get on with the party.

  32. I'm glad your french couple were reunited! They were probably searching for each other at the Goodwill. When she disappeared, he was probably frantic until you rescued him too!

  43. That ceramic couple are definitely a great PAIR, Marty! They look adorable, featured under your beautiful cloche...that is my favorite of all the ones you own.

  44. Your French "elders" are just too precious, and I think the cow is the perfect companion. Even the scale works! I am going to have to get a cloche. I have resisted because I live with a bull in the china shop, and I think I know what would happen to it. (He has other redeeming qualities -- LOL!) Thanks for hosting.
