The lovely and talented Marty over at A Stroll Thru Life will now be hosting Table Top Tuesday. When she described it as showing all your table top displays and vignettes anywhere in your house, I thought "Well, this is just right up my alley!!" So I'm joining the fun and hope to play along every Tuesday! (It'll give me motivation to dust every week, too!!) :-D
To start off this week I am cheating just a little...you see, Marty had a 'Show Us Your Cloches' party last Friday and I totally forgot..so I'm taking advantage of this now to show a few cloche displays. I asked Marty if it were okay and she graciously gave me her blessing! ;-)
So this is my nod to Valentine's Day decorating. A little romantic vignette in the dining room.
My sweet friend, Judy, taught me how to paint the cherub. It was all white to begin with and with her magic touch with various paints and finishes produced this little beauty! The plate is one I decoupaged with the darling cherub image and gold and white tissue paper.
I stuck a little candlestick lamp under a cloche with a cherub and Valentine embellished bottle.
Under this small cloche is a picture of my grandmother when she was about 18 years old..
Also in the dining room, sitting on the dry-sink is another little lamp under a cloche. This one flickers, and a small little flower arrangement and a vintage pink ornament keeps it company.
In the sitting room is this angel under cloche with sheet music called "A Perfect Day".
Also in the sitting room is this little vignette under glass..just odds and ends that I found pleasing to the eye and just bunched them together in the cloche!
I have a music book opened to the song "Believe Me, If All Those Endearing Young Charms"..that was the song my mother used to sing to me when I was a little girl...
It sits upon the coffee table with a baby picture of my dad, a vintage beaded purse, a glass doorknob, and a candle holder. It sounds kinda funny when I write it out, but somehow it works in the display...
Well, THAT was fun!! Hope you enjoyed my first Table Top Tuesday!! Be sure to check out Marty's Blog for other blogger's wonderful displays!!
