Wow! I am just lovin' all the blog parties in blogland!! There seems to be one everyday, oh my how my buttocks is getting wider and wider with all this sitting in front on the ole' laptop looking at some great posts and wonderful ideas!
Today I am participating in Tabletop Tuesday hosted by Marty at A Stroll Thru Life. I can't wait to see all the wonderful tabletop ideas. Marty has a fabulous coffee table vignette up on her blog with a to-die-for antique scale and if you scroll down to her previous post she has featured a wonderful book with fantastic tabletop ideas. Go take a look and enjoy.
I walked around our home searching high and low for a tabletop to feature. I had such a hard time finding one as e v e r y t h i n g is in such a disarray since our first 10,000lbs of worldly treasures will leave AZ next week heading for GA. Alas, the one room that really hasn't been packed or messed up yet is our living room. So tonight I am featuring not really a tabletop but a shelftop. My late grandmother had this shelf (along with a matching mirror and candle sconces) made by a friend in the 1950's. It holds so many memories for me....I just love the shelf all by itself. : ) On the shelf I have placed a few blue and white pieces. One I picked up while stationed in Korea and the one on top of the book my girlfriend, Debbie, sent to me while she was stationed in Korea. The lamp belonged to my grandmothers first cousin. Not sure what that makes her to me??? The painting also came from Beijing for $4.00. I had it framed in Korea for $25.00...that is a Larson Juhl frame!!
I hope ya'll enjoy my shelftop/tabletop....
