Welcome to the 3rd Tabletop Tuesday!
I am really starting to look forward to Tuesdays, because I am getting so much inspiration from everyone's posts. But best of all, I love seeing the little glimpses throughout your home that showcase your style, your history and your passions. Thank you for sharing them with all of us.
So...to give you a brief medical update (I know, NOT why you came here huh!) -
I had my gallbladder removed last Wednesday. Long story short....none of the symptoms have subsided. I am back to square one...back to the surgeon tomorrow.
So, I am sorry to say this week's Tabletop Tuesday post will be "borrowed inspiration" from http://www.bhg.com/ .
Please make sure your post is complete before you add your link. Also, please add the shortcut link directly to your post, and not just your blog's URL. I have provided a small button below if you wish to add it to your sidebar or post. It's not necessary to add the button, but I do ask that you link back to this site, as well as, mention this blog party.
Thanks again for joining in....whether you are posting...or simply enjoying all the eye candy. :)

As I get older, I find myself wanting to add more house plants in my home. I have never had an "interior" green thumb. Give me herbs or vegetables or annuals...and I can grow a lovely garden. Not so much with houseplants.
But, I love how a simply houseplant can be added to a unique container ...and you have an instant "accessory."
I love how the spanish moss covers the dirt at the base of the plant, but also adds texture and a touch of "woodsy" appeal.
I love the earthiness of the terra cotta pots placed inside the delicate, white saucers.
I have discovered that even a "brown" thumb can generally grow snake plants. :)
I love how these plants "beautify" the corner of this mantle.
Green plants nestled in a blue and white bowl. Splendid!
But, even if you're not a plant lover, or cannot have plants in your home for whatever reason (I have to be careful with my fur babies), Mother Nature offers a wonderful array of choices for your accessorizing needs.
Fresh or dried artichokes in a plain glass bowl. Understated and beautiful!
A bundle of rose hips tied with a green satin bow...simple yet elegant, too.
Lemons! Need I say more?
And, when all else fails....let's not forget one of Mother Nature's most cherished offerings....fresh blossoms and cuttings. I love the juxtaposition of the tarnished silver urn with the pink crocus, especially when set against a backdrop of white subway tile. mmmm.....just Heaven!
I can't wait to see your Tabletops, Vignettes and Favorite Accessories. Please add your link below....and provide a few words to describe your post.
Thanks again for making this weekly blog party and success....and so much fun!
Happy Tabletop Tuesday....Barb
