Tabletop Tuesday


I'm so happy to see Marty has taken over Tabletop Tuesdays because I love participating in this meme! Thanks Marty! Go to Marty's blog A Stroll Thru Life for more inspiration with many more pretty tabletops!

Today's tabletop is in our master bedroom. A little round table tucked beside the large TV armoire.

My husband gave me the little tea set about ten years ago. He saw it at Cracker Barrel and
said it was "so me" he had to buy it for me!

The table scarf is really a lace shawl draped over the top!

He and I purchased the picture in Charleston, SC a few years ago.
It is called "Poogan's Porch" which is a restaurant we like there in Charleston. Actually, we like
the Poogan's Porch legend! The legend tells about a little mongrel dog who lived with his family at this pretty two-story home in Charleston in the old days. The family had to move away and couldn't take the dog with them so he stayed on the porch alone waiting for handouts from passerbys. There's even a little grave in the front yard with a grave marker for Poogan! Have you ever eaten at the Poogan's Porch restaurant in Charleston?

You've seen the shabby chic candlestick before in my tablescapes,
this is where I borrowed it from
The clear acrylic box holds little crocheted baby shoes.

Next week I will show more tablestops in our master bedroom,
thanks for visiting, and please come back!


Have a happy day!
God Bless.

Such a sweet tea set... I just bought a small one for my granddaughters 6th birthday. Her and I are going to tablescape it soon... perhaps we will table top it too!

Oh, I just love your teaset. I remember when Cracker Barrell carried this line and admiring the beauty of those pieces. Thanks for sharing.

What a sweet husband you have. As always, I love the dishes. BTW, I was just in TJ Maxx eyeing a terrarium (sp?) tonight, trying to convince myself that I don't need it. Your blog didn't help. I'm feeling my credit card magnet pull me back there....Help!!! I have no where to put it, but it is just calling my name!

Such a great idea to use a shawl as a table scarf! The tea set is just gorgeous and I just love the way you've got everything set up. Enjoyed the story behind Poogan's Porch, poor little doggy!! xoxo

Cute tea set and what a sweet hubby to get it for you. Love the pooch/porch story.

Kathleen said...

So pretty!
I was in Charleston MANY years ago. My friend went to the Citadel and got married there. Interesting story..
The best is your dh buying you the tea set because it was so you. That shows a lot of love!

Hi Katherine,
So pretty! The colors and textures you've used in your vignette coordinate beautifully with the Poogan's Porch picture. I was in Charleston last year ... wish I'd known about the restaurant. It's a wonderful city, isn't it? Now I have an excuse to go there again asap!

Hope the rest of your week goes well.

Warmest regards,
Bill
