Tabletop Tuesday - a little tweeking

It's always a pleasure to visit Marty at "A Stroll Thru Life" -- she's one of the sweetest bloggers there is. So today I've done just a little "tweeking" of my tabletops before I redo it all changing from Spring to Summer decor.

A bit of Springness on my washstand.

Isn't May the merriest of months?

A peek at my apothocary jar -- what's this? A baby shoe?

The perfect spot for a little nest!

I love fresh asparagus in early spring!

A view of the Spring sideboard.

This had been a decoration for an earlier bridal shower and wedding tablescape. I've removed the tulle and kept it for Spring.

A few more pictures of spring birds and "nesting". My tablescape this Thursday will be all about my favorite vintage bird china -- there's something about Spring and our feathered friends, isn't there?

Be sure to visit Marty at "A Stroll Thru Life" -- you'll be glad you did!

See ya!


  1. Hi Martha! The temps here turned summer hot! Not ready for the 80s...would like some more of the 70s.
    Neat things you have on the buffet/sideboard!
    Love the white with gold pitcher and the little shoe with eggs in it is a very cute idea.
    Have a sweet week,

  3. Oh, I want your sideboard Martha! Everything looks just gorgeous, you have that touch!

  4. Oh how gorgeous. I love it. Your silver tea service, the silver coffee server and the silver sugar scuttle with the nest, what a great way to display some silver. The terreriam is gorgeous with the beautiful bird prints. All together the vignette is just gorgeous. Thanks so much for joining the party, this is just gorgeous and such fabulous eye candy. Hugs, Marty

  13. Thanks for the visit today. The tiny nest in the baby shoe, I love, may have to steal that idea!

  14. That baby shoe is adorable...that is a real hit!

  15. Just beautiful my the baby shoe and nest...and your side board is to die for...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  16. What a sweet tabletop! I love the way you've put everything together. Thanks for sharing with us!

  17. I love this tabletop. You really have a knack for pulling accessories together. I never would have thought to use a baby shoe and a nest together, but it really works. Your buffet/sideboard is a gorgeous piece of furniture!

  18. Just gorgeous, Martha. The sideboard is very pretty.


  19. That is so cute. I love the baby shoes with the robin's eggs in them. Very nicely done.

  20. Sweet Martha..your tabletop is as lovely as you are! It shows love and thought and that is what our homes are all about! My home is full of birds and everything about them interests me so this tabletop is wonderful to me! Just wonderful! How cute the little nest is in the sugar shuttle! So sweet!
    Love and hugs to you this beautiful morning!

  21. The Spring sideboard says it all in just the right way. Lovely vignettes. Jane F

  22. Martha, it all looks so pretty, and I love your chalkboard saying. If May wasn't just about over, I'd be borrowing that saying. The bird nest in the top of the baby shoe is so clever. laurie
