There are two round end tables on either side of the sofa in the living room
Old tables -- the first one is older than the second.
It's a tilt top table with carving on it's legs.
It's quite a pretty table.
|Asian, English and Waterford|
And on the table Saturday
is the lamp made out of an Asian pot
An English milk pitcher full of garden roses atop some books
Two "Staffordshire" figurines -- of poodles, I think
And a Waterford Ashtray
(not for cigarettes but it's my coaster -- my very elegant coaster!)
And on the other side of the sofa is a 40's pedestal table with drawer
(one always needs at least one drawered end table in the living room for it's where one keeps cards for bridge and the telephone directory and a small note book and pen)
It got a glass top (for Husband Jim is not really a coaster person -- so it's top is really a coaster!)
|A plant, a lamp and a book|
A lamp made from an Asian tea tin,
a blue Spode bowl with a Christmas cactus,
An abalone shell
And Husband Jim's latest read, Killing Kennedy
The tabletops change with the seasons --
in spring and summer the plant is replaced with fruit in the bowl or a vase of flowers
The blue and white milk pitcher is not always on the books but when it is garden flowers of spring, summer and fall are replaced by florist flowers in winter. Or perhaps a blue and white bowl filled with fruit will top the books.
And this time next year?
I'm sure the tabletops won't look the same.
I'm not a furniture mover (well, except to clean) for once a piece of furniture has it's place there it stays.
But tabletops are a different matter.
I tire of them, I guess, or I'll find something new and I don't like clutter
so I'll rearrange the tabletops.
It's Tuesday and I'm joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday.
