Last year I did a sweet little vignette for Valentine’s Day on “Grandma’s Table,” an antique piece I’m so pleased to have inherited from my Grandmother Verdie. This year, I decided to try something a little different by making a love-themed display on the low coffee table instead. (I know – daring, right?)
It’s funny how the pictures don’t show you exactly what I see when I look at this. The objects are there, of course, but somehow I am able in my mind’s eye to blot out the background – the television, the electronics cords, the TV trays… I see that they are almost overwhelmingly distracting in my photos, but to me – well I hardly notice them when I am enjoying this little collection.
Anyway, here’s the table with some fun little bits and pieces on display:
The table is a contemporary style, a dark-wood base with an oval glass top. I started by simply arranging a leftover sheer curtain panel.
And added some love-themed items like my large silverplated bowl filled with pinecones and adorned with a layered rose-and-ribbon accent.
A sweet framed photo of hubby and myself, from a very long time ago ;) …
And this thrift-store-found Valentine-themed tic-tac-toe board:
It all looks lovely… if you can see past the TV trays and the television set! LOL
I’m linking my little table to the “What’s It Wednesday” party at Patti & Paula’s lovely blog, Ivy and Elephants.
