Tabletop Tuesday

For this week's Tabletop Tuesday I thought I'd show you the little vignette in the corner of my sitting room.
My sweet husband gave me that "Rest In the Lord" picture one Christmas a couple of Christmas's ago.
A friend from San Diego sent me the victorian couple lamp because she thought it'd go so well in our home. I embellished a lampshade I had with trim beading to go with the lamp. The cocoa pot was my mother's. A birthday present to her from her Aunt Laura when my mom turned 9. Heirlooms.... Sigh.

I love the glow the lamp casts when it's turned on..

Steve bought this corner china cabinet for me after we moved up here to house my collection of pretties! Another gift from Steve is the Tea Set on the third shelf. When I fell in love with tea parties he was quick to help me start my collection. He is such a sweet and thoughtful guy!

This is the top shelf..holding thrift store finds as well as thoughtful gifts from sweet friends!!

And the second shelf..the Hull pottery on the left was purchased for just a few dollars when I was on a trip to Michigan. I since found out it's worth quite a bit more! The white tea cup with flowers was a find at Michael's.  And the sugar and creamer were a Metamorphosis Monday project you can read about here
This darling mirrored shelf is a flea market find...holding sweet treasures.
So that's a little corner of my home for Tabletop Tuesday!

Be sure to visit Marty at A Stroll Thru Life to see her beautiful living room as well as other's creative displays!
