I never move furniture. Once in place it stays. But, I do change tabletops. Sometimes because I've gotten something new, sometimes because I've seen an inspirational photo in a magazine.
But change it does. And it's a thought out change -- sometimes sketching the idea on paper before I move the items to the tabletop.
However, in the breakfast room the other day . . . .
An empty table top . . . .
Became this vignette. Nothing was planned. The lamp has always been there -- it's a real wine bottle -- the vintage was the year we were married. The rest of the lamp is a wine opener!
The Spode blue and white pitcher was on the breakfast room table filled with hydrangeas and I like to dry them to use for winter so they're still in the pitcher. They were moved from the table to this side table because I had some fresh flowers to put in another Spode blue and white pitcher. And just plunked down -- to be moved someday.
The blue and white salt and pepper shaker were a gift from dear friend Pat. I had a luncheon and after, I put them on the table instead of putting them in their proper place. Shame on me!
And Friday's luncheon included the birds as part of the centerpiece. After the luncheon, I put them on the little table when I took off the luncheon tablecloth and put the breakfast room back to rights.
And there it all stayed all day Saturday and then Sunday I looked at the table and thought "what a neat vignette"! I like it and it was so totally unplanned. A vignette made out of laziness actually for instead of putting things away, I used the table as a landing zone!
Sometimes, it does pay to be impromptu and spur of the moment for it's a good vignette. How long will it stay -- I'm not sure. But for August at least, it will remain.
I'm joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday. See what other great tabletops there are this Tuesday.
