New Tabletop Items & Randomness

I thought I’d start off by sharing a picture of part of our yard from Sunday morning.   More snow is, apparently, expected Tuesday.  I hate when the word “snow” is bandied about with the word “storm”.


Here is my nod to Valentine’s Day decorating.  I can’t find the few Valentine’s Day things I made last year.  I, obviously, need a better storage system.  I still can’t find my stocking holders!


My house is still not “back to normal” yet, but I did want to share two things I had purchased from Polly at Make Mine Beautiful last month.  I really like the white pieces with the greenery.   This is the hutch in my dining room.


Disregard the whiskey decanter.  We don’t drink that; I just like the decanter.



Polly added some lovely embellishments that still allow it to be simple, yet is perfect for me.   This is probably the only “tabletop” that is done and not changing at this point in time.  I have empty cloches begging for attention though!


I also had bought these wooden chargers from Pier 1 last week.  Isn’t the shape great?  I love them!  I wish they had been cheaper than $12.99 each, but I bought three and hope to do something with them {other than use them as chargers}.    They are a really nice size and if I decide to go with one idea, two would hang nicely vertically on a slice of wall in my dining room.  We’ll see.

One does work great as a base for a cloche display.


I bought the little desk and chair from Marsha at Sassy Mini Dolls, just recently.   She included the little desktop items as a gift.   A tabletop display on top of a tabletop display!


It’s too cute!   I love it!

Hi Kathy,
The tabletop display on the tabletop display....I love that!! And the greenery in the white display pieces are beautiful. Such a nice way to bring a little outdoors into the room.
Hope you don't get too much more snow.

How neat is that minature tabletop under glass! The charger is so different and yes, the shape offers all kinds of possibilites. Enjoyed your post and browsing your blog. Very nice!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

I heart everything, Kathy! Those wooden chargers are wonderful! Whenever you mention Pier 1 I think I need to go there but I always forget!!! The little wreath is just perfect and your setting on your hutch is so pretty!

Ahhhh, the little desk set looks perfect under the cloche! Thank you :)

And can I saw that the photo of your backyard is so pretty although I know the word "snow" is not **wink**


Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Oh Kathy, everything is so pretty, but you know that I am totally drooling over the cloche and that tiny desk and chair under it. So pretty on the new charger and that tiny little present. So much fun. I love your topiaries also and the use of the black and white ribbon. Pretty, pretty, pretty. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Those chargers are amazing! The very reason I need to stay out of that store :)) I can't find my Valentine decorations either, or New Year's for that matter. Glad I'm not the only one!

Connie said...

The chargers are so pretty. When I saw them it reminded me of some white plates that the owner had monogramed with fancy script letters she ordered from a website. Those chargers have all kinds of possibilities so you've probably made a good investment. Enjoy!

Decor To Adore said...

Oh that wee desk and chair are daring. I love the charger too!

Thank you so much for your much appreciated input on my office. I adore you!

Looks so cute Kathy! I love those chargers- gotta start checking Peir 1, I never think to go in there:)
Hope you don't get too much of the cold white stuff!

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Kathy that miniture desk is so cute and sooo you! The little gift bag totally makes me think it could be your desk. Your chargers are wonderful and I was thinking it would be a great base for your cloches before you even said it. I like your greenery from Polly too. Thanks for visiting my new blog, you really should get one of those mugs if you want a big one. They are huge! Hope your enjoying the snow!

I really like the white pieces with the greenery & black/white ribbon. It just says "fresh" to me. The mini display under the cloche is just precious. Stay warm and cozy.

Tara@JustDevineStyle said...

Oh yes Snow and Storm always come with a little feeling of dread. Our weather said Freezing rain and ice this Sunday luckily it was not as bad as I had feared.
I love the chargers even at the price they are beautiful. I have a similar little white creamer I love the greenery in the one you bought from Polly.
Hey depending on the day that decanter may come in handy! lol

Enjoy your evening,

Hi Kathy,
The little miniatures created by Marsha are so sweet. I love them on the charger with the cloche.


Leslie {Goodbye, house. Hello, home!} said...

I think the chargers were as steal! Such character!
Once this snow goes away, I am headed to Pier 1 to see if ours carries those!
My 3 cloches need plates, too! :)
I love miniatures and yours is simply darling!
I went to Sassy mini Dolls, and couldn't figure out where her "store" is.
Can you help me?
Thank you!
HUGS and blessings!

I love the little desk in the cloche. Your photos are lovely.

Hi Kathy,
You are so talented and you accessorize beautifully. I love it all, but especially those chargers....I WANT!! The cloche and the tiny desk and chair are so adorable, what a great idea!

Thanks for sharing and for your sweet comments on my blog! *smile* Enjoy the evening! XOXO ~Liz

Kathy! Thanks much for visiting me and leaving a comment! You are so sweet and kind! I adore those white chargers from Pier 1... the shape IS awesome! Love your plans for Christmas decor next year too! Happy New Year! Angie xo

Blue Creek Home said...

Those chargers are so pretty. Love the idea of hanging them on the wall.
Cute tiny desk-perfect under the cloche.

Your stacked stone wall and picket fence are beautiful in the snow.

What a surprise to see 'my' pieces on your blog today. I think they look great where you have them. Seeing that little pitcher again I think I need to make another one for myself. I love the way it looks setting against the dark wood. That you for the reference and links.

Oh, and I love that little cloche. As popular as cloches are, I can't seem to find them in the stores right now. Know where I can find three identical ones with varying heights that are the basic style?

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Hi Kathy, The white pitcher is adorable and I love the little desk and chair under the cloche. I got these same chargers for my birthday last year and use them all the time.

Ms. Bake-it said...

I like the chargers and cannot wait to see what you end up doing with them. I love the tabletop vignette cloche! Too cute!
