Just a Little Change Up

Hi everyone!

Today is just a small redo of my table floor lamp. I have just had my shamrock plant on it since St. Patrick’s day. Nothing very exciting but, the plant is so healthy I didn’t want to just get rid of it now that St. Patrick’s day is over.

I have been using this tureen a lot for decorative purposes. I also added a little spanish moss to fill in around the planter and the the tureen.

simple tabletop 002I really love the way it looks in this tureen with the moss. I added my two thrifted swans that I did little makeovers on and a recently thrifted Easter Bunny figure.

simple tabletop 006 This notice on the bottom “For Decorative Purposes Only!” cracked me up. What? Was someone planning on covering the figurine in melted cheese and serving him? Okay, moving along.

Since I really liked the little guy and he was only .20 cents at a thrift store, I thought he deserved a little “touch up”.

  8. Awwww, you did a great job on that little fellow, Diann. He makes me smile. Anytime I see anything that can make me smile, I bring it home. My thinking is, if it can make me smile,it will make others smile, too. And Lord knows this world needs more smiles! ha! Susan
