Seeking Spring


     Today I will show you how winter has disappeared from my coffee table and spring has arrived. I am always challenged displaying things on my round table. I started with a vintage silver tray that belonged to my mother. The carrots were a recent craft show purchase for $5...I loved them and they smell good too!


     You saw this little pitcher in a recent post and I decided to leave it on the table. It is my only white one so far and I love it.


A piece of ribbon binds together two very old children's books.


The sparkly postcard adds a pop of color.


A twig basket holds a little nest and pastel eggs.


I am joining Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday.
Please stop in to say hello. Marty's grandson was seriously
injured a few days ago, I'm sure she would love your support.

I think trays are a great way to "group" objects together on a table and you've done a terrific job! Love the eggs/nest displayed in that basket!

I love that Sue!
So springy and so Eastery too!
I have a round coffee table and I know what you mean. It is hard to figure out a way to display things. I like the tray idea!
Hugs,

Sue, this is just perfect for spring! Our new house has so many buds springing up from the ground, since I'm terrible at all things green, I'm looking forward to seeing what comes up! Your scape has me dreaming in green!

Now that was weird, in the middle of writing my comment, blogger just pushed me right off and went back to your post.

So again, I adore those fabric carrots and the sparkly cards sets them off beautifully.

I have a passion for old books and musty, old book stores!

Your carrots are so nicely made!
I haven't been to a craft fair in a long time... what's the matter with me?
