127th Table Top Tuesday


I can tell from your blogs that you are all in the mood for change and certainly starting to think of fall a little bit, so I can't wait to see what you have for this week.

I hadn't changed up the familyroom coffee table for a while, so thought it was time.  Plus, I am so ready for fall it is unreal.  These hot temps still hovering some days around 110 always get to me this time of year.

I thought maybe some flowers for a change would be fun.  So I raided my tub that holds all of my faux flowers and came up with a really weird mix, but it was what I had, so I went with it.  It's the same arrangement I showed you the other day, just thought it looked best on this coffee table.


 The touch of green is fun to add to the room.  I love this coffee table and love having the stools that pull out for extra seating when we need it, however I always find it hard to decorate.  I settled for the obvious with flowers, candles, books and a charger.


 Great frenchy scene planter, and cute little feet.


 A mix of candles for some added interest.








 Nice and simple but fun for a change.


Oh, we have a change already.  I had a party for my son's BD and my daughter came bearing gifts.  This is a little chest she isn't using any more and wanted to know if I would like it.  Duh - - - Of Course.  Isn't it a great box and it has the key too.


 It immediately replaced the charger.


 Love it, I am so thrilled I get her cast offs, they are always fabulous.


So, what all have you been changing up, I can't wait to be inspired.

  2. Marty,
    Love the new box! Have you hidden any treasures inside??? I'm gearing up for Fall here on the Prairie, as well. This year with our months of triple digit temperatures and drought conditions has me anxious for the next Seasons change! Thank you for hosting each week. Now, I'm off to see what the others are bringing toTable Top Tuesday for more inspiration!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  3. Thanks for hosting Marty.

    I did a little bit of Fall for TTT. We are at the lake and doing things at the condo is sort of minimal, so I dug around in archives. We are definitely ready for cooler temps here in Missouri and we need rain!

  26. Marty I have two pieces of furniture that cause me havoc to decorate. The worse one is the entertainment center. I am always changing that thing out. The other is the coffee table. Right now all I have on my coffee table is a black decorative box.
    Your vignette on your coffee table is very pretty! I think your flower mix is very pretty!
