113th Table Top Tuesday


Welcome to the 113th Table Top Tuesday.  I am thrilled you are here and can't wait to see what you have been up to.

This weekend was the big furniture move to my son's new house, so I didn't have any time to play.  I have spent most of the week there cleaning, setting up his kitchen and bathrooms and getting things ready for the big move.  So all I have is just a fast new tablescape for the coffee table.


My son had a ton of his things in the guest bedroom and I used it for a lot of storage, so clearing that all out is still a chore.  I did grab this huge hurricane that I have had for years and decided to use it on the coffee table again.  Such a neat piece.  Yes, that's a peak at the new sofa, I just havn't had time to fluff, so no pics yet.


 I love the rusty base with the scroll feet and the heavy bubble glass on the hurricane.


The antique scale full of fruit stayed, I love the punch of color it gives the room.


My elephant box is always a conversation starter.  (That's not dust, it's that grey stuff they put in cracks to make things look aged.  In person it doesn't look dirty. lol)



 I also used one of the same chargers that I have on the breakfast table and a set of matching coasters.  Kind of gives the room a tropical look with the rush seats of the benches showing through the glass top of the table.


Hopefully I will have more time this week to visit.  I did check on all of your links last week, just didn't have time to comment on all of them.  You guys are so inspiring.

  16. Hi Marty, I love your scale and fruit. I bought some cool 1950's fruit last week. Trying to figure out what to do with it. Thanks for hosting, Olive

  17. I love that big hurricane lamp, Marty. It is always a big job to help an adult son move, isn't it? More so than a daughter because at least they have some idea of how things should look when set up. For just having a "move out" your place looks pretty fantastic. I can't wait to see your new sofa all dressed up! xo Diana

  50. I am enamored with your vintage scale, Marty! It looks great with the fruit in it. And of course, who couldn't like a decorative hurricane? I like the rusted finish on the base. :-) Funny how we still help out our "kids" isn't it? I'll probably be doing the same thing when our son moves within the next few months. He didn't get the decorating gene! LOL hugs, Sue

  51. I hope your son is all settled in...maybe he will let you take some pictures of his new place!

    I love your hurricane and scale. It was a great idea to put fruit on it...so colorful!
