It's Tabletop Tuesday -- always fun to see all the inspiration across blogworld and being invited in such welcoming homes. This week what I'm sharing -- isn't exactly a tabletop -- it's a shelf (hope that counts). This shelf in in my laundry room (well not even a room - maybe a laundry hall! I don't know who's bright idea this was -- but you have to go through this in order to get to the only downstairs powder room. I dream of someday adding on a true laundry room and turning this spot into a butler's pantry. When I had a bridal shower a couple of weeks ago, I wanted this path to look inviting so I cleared off the shelf that contains all the laundry and cleaning items.
The space is so tight I had to take three pictures in order to get everything. The green sign is one I put up several years ago at Christmas and decorated with candles, greenery and ribbons -- I've just left it up. Today I covered the shelf with green "grass" and tried to make a little garden setting. Pink bows and the pink rosebud vine were from our daughter's wedding almost 5 years ago. The topiary was one I made for a baby shower when she was expecting twin girls (see the two little eggs in the nest?).
The bird house was purchased years ago at Garden Ridge -- I've used in several places in my house. The bunnies were purchased at Kroger a couple of years ago.
Just trying to pretty up the path to the ladies room! Now if I could just get those bunnies to do the laundry.
To see lots of tabletop decor and inspirations, be sure to visit Marty at "A Stroll Thru Life" -- she's the sweetest of hostesses.
