Table Top Tuesday

I'm participating in Marty's A Stroll Thur Life's Table Top Tuesday.
I took the following pictures about 2 weeks ago. Today I'm featuring my living room's coffee table. The coffee table belonged to my mom, which she passed on to me, or maybe I begged for it...I can't remember now...but have always loved it!

The flowers were given to me by my co-workers for Administrative Professionals Day. They're gorgeous flowers!

I tried to arrange a vignette of things I love and have owned for a long time. The big glass bowl, again was a gift from Mom from about 20 years ago, which I filled with some potpourri. At one time Hubby and I used it as a fish bowl...RIP poor little's a subject Dear Hubs and I don't talk about...we just don't talk about or bring up...
I filled the candy dish with Christmas garland pearlized beads.

I placed a milk glass dish bowl filled with some of Hubby's seashell collection. I found this cute bird at Bealls Outlet store.

I found the plate at a local thrift store. I think I shared with you that I'm a dishaholic!!! LOL!!! A sickness I tell you!!!

I love the little bird perched on a stack of my favorite books...also from Beall's Outlet store.

Thanks for visiting and make sure you stop by Marty's at A Stroll Thru Life to visit some wonderful and talented bloggers' table tops.
