Table Top Tuesday

I am participating in my very first Table Top Tuesday hosted by Marty at a Stroll Thru Life.
I'm not very good at arranging vignettes...I add too much or not enough.. So I'm willing to practice until I get it right. When we moved to this house, Hubby wanted a change...MINIMALIST! Very hard for me to follow this decor...I love pretty things and collections! I was willing to compromise as long as I had one room where I could have the things I love and make me happy.

I have this entertainment/computer unit that I get to decorate in my CRAFT ROOM. For my first Table Top Tuesday I chose the first top shelf.

I was given this picnic basket by a family member about a year ago...thank you Faye! It's filled with tons of ribbon for all of my card/crafting projects. I love baskets!

Since Spring is in the air, Easter comes to mind. I placed a Longaberger basket that I won as a door prize at Sue's Longaberger Open House almost 2 years ago. The tray is from the Dollar Store before it was the Dollar Store...was it Dollar Tree? The frog is from a local garage sale. The glass beads are from a very long time ago when I was first married. Hubby and I loved shopping at Pier Imports...when they had more unique items and cheaper.

Make sure you stop at Marty's and visit more awesome bloggers participating in Table Top Tuesday...see you next week!


  1. What a lovely display on your bookshelf. I'll have to admit though, I was trying to sneak a peek at your milk glass pieces on the second shelf. I LOVE milk glass!

  2. Your vignettes look great.

  3. I think you do a fabulous job with your vignettes. I love the baskets. I always have a thing for them and every one is so unique and wonderful on its on. Your little bunny and the tray are so perfect for spring and Easter. Great vignette. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  4. What a lovely shelf display. Love it all and I have never seen a Longaberger basket like that. I also love Milk Glass so maybe next week?

  5. Good looking vignettes...luv your basket that's holding your ribbon. Hope you have a FUN week!
