Tulips and a Table Top Vignette


*

*
Hello my friends!
*
Well...I'm getting a late start today but I really did want to join in with Marty's Table Top Tuesday party.
*
This is a new little springtime vignette that I have going on in my dining room on the table...just thought I would share it with you today. I recently found this huuuge cloche (14" tall) at TJ Maxx for just $16.99! Ohhh boy, you should have seen me doin' my happy dance! Hehe! I have a new set of salad/dessert plates that I also just purchased from TJ Maxx...under the cloche and one little green apple sits atop the salad plates. I'll share my new dishes with you a little later since I'm trying to hurry today!

A Very Special Gift...
*
The pretty tulips were a very special gift! My honey picked them for me...they were growing wild in the yard of one of our properties. Isn't that just the sweetest? I'm a tellin' ya...that man can melt my heart like no other!!! So I put the pretty tulips in one of my old white ironstone cream pitchers. Ahhhh...just perfect!!!

Hi Chari,
Very pretty! Love the white with the brightly colored tulips they are special considering who gave them to you (!), and so cheerful. Which, by the way, you always seem to be. You just have the most "UP" personality, and I appreciate it so much!!

Hi Chari,
Thanks for all your sweet notes! Hey, we all have things to do and places to go. Don't feel bad if you don't make it over to my blog right away. That's life! I love your beautiful vignette and the cloche and tulips are gorgeous together! Your pics always make things so romantic and soft looking. Good photographer! Sounds like you have a busy weekend and then Memorial Day. We are going away this weekend and then my son and dil from AZ. are coming home. Oh, can't wait on that one. I have hardly worked since my surgery and really need to get caught up on so many things. On the bright side, it's mid 70's to low 80's and sunny all week here. Oh Yah, this is my kind of weather.
Have a good week my friend,
Cindy

Chari, love that large cloche and what a price, girl. I think you have some yellow writing at the bottom of your blog, but I can't see it to read it.

Whatever would we do without TJ's?
The cloche is wonderful and just the simplicity of your centerpiece is great. I think sometimes the simple ones are the best.
Come by and visit our chocolate world. Have a great and wonderful day.

I love coming to your blog Chari...You have some of the neatest ideas and I always find a few new and interesting people to follow...

Love your tulips too! I only had four come up out of nearly 60 bulbs this year. Oh well...at least I had a few pretties to look at...:)

Rettabug said...

Give that hubby a nice big hug for being so thoughtful, Chari! My ex-DH used to bring me armloads of wild flowers from a stand that was on his way home from work. Come to think of it, that was one of the FEW nice things he did! LOL

♥ ♥ ♥ your Gigundo new cloche! Oh, the possibilities!!!!!
