Spring Table Top...

Tonight I am showing you the top of a dresser...
I keep in my tiny family room.

I have dressed up in a spring theme...

(click on photos to enlarge)

My backdrop is an old tin ceiling tile..
I picked up at an estate sale.
I hung it using a torn strip of white muslin.


My lilacs are just starting to bloom...


I love this reproduction lamp...
the lovely lady is happily swinging in the lilacs :-)


I also picked up this plate recently..
I have been loving bright white dishes,
with pink edging lately.
They look so cheerful!


This is a real nest I found last year...
It's so small and delicate.
I set it in the crook of a fake dogwood branch.


Here is a close up on the sweet little nest,
I put a clutch of fake eggs in it.

Today I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life
for Table Top Tuesday


Thanks For Stopping By,

Very pretty vignette! I really like the swinging lady...she looks to be bronze? The nest in the dogwood branch looks great. I have a little nest that appears to be for hummingbirds so you gave a great idea on how to display it.

How lovely. The lamp is adorable. And I agree with the previous comment - a nest in branches is a great idea (I also have an abandoned nest in my garden). Thank you for sharing your spring table top and providing us with great ideas.

Beautiful table top vignette...I wish I had fresh lilacs to smell...too hot to grow them here. The Joshua Tree forest is northwest of Phoenix valley and have driven through it many times. Very unusual looking trees.

Very pretty, I love the ceiling tile idea! And don't you wonder what type of bird makes a nest that small?

What a beautiful table scape. I had a duh! moment when you pointed out the nest in the branches, I can to so far tablescaping and grind to a halt. Yours are always so pretty, thanks for sharing and have a wonderful day.

Very pretty Bella! I absolutely love your lamp! Your vignette is so pretty especially with the ceiling tile behind. Love how you hung that w/muslin too. Just beautiful!

Tricia said...

Oh, this is simply gorgeous! I love all the individual elements you've combined so beautifully, and grounding it with that tin ceiling tile is brilliant! LOVE that idea! I wish I had one from my grandfather's jewelry store.

Stunning!!!! I love the ceiling tile as a backdrop and what a great idea to hang it with the muslin ribbon. The lamp is fantastic. Such an eye catching piece. The old books with the branch sitting on top and the little nest is such a creative and beautiful idea. Your new plate is lovely. How wonderful to have lilacs blooming. A truly gorgeous vignette. Thanks so much for joining the party. Great eye candy. Hugs, Marty

That swinging lady lamp is too cute! I love old lamps like that just because they were so fun and interesting.
