Scarves and Jars and Giveaway Reminder

After the Holidays,  my eyes needed a rest, so the  Living Room Tabletops have been clean, using fewer  elements for January.   Both the side table and cocktail table scarves were  changed to gold and creamy white.  The side table apothecary jar was filled with Pinecones.
My Vintage Brownie Camera was added.  If you want to see his story and have him wink at you he will.
Add some Vintage Books and a Tassel.
A  Crystal Candy Dish and a little Pomegranate made of pewter and purchased in Greece.  Pomegranates are for good luck.
Silver 038 
The cocktail table has a matching gold and cream scarf, all scrunched up.  The apothecary jars are filled  with Dried Botanicals.
Plus a few Classic Books
Some decorative Carnelian Beads from Greece
Silver 036 
And sometimes the Chair is like a tabletop when it holds an Open Book
Now, be sure to check  out my $30.00 Your Choice Gift Card Giveaway…Home Depot or Hobby Lobby.   Stop in and Nannette and Babbette will give you the details.   Just please don’t say that I called them Vintage Thingies.  They would really be upset if they knew.  They're sensitive.

I am linking to the following parties.  Please stop by and thank the gracious hostesses, make some friends and leave some comment love for the hostesses and guests.  We all love comments, don’t we!
A Stoll Thru Life on Tuesday
Elements Interiors on Wednesday
My Romantic Home on Friday
  Until next time, Honey


  1. Old books always add such a nice look to tables and bookshelves. Your camera is sweet, what a nice touch!

  2. Love the scarf on your coffee table...beautiful vignettes, too

  3. Your January Tables are all so lovely with your scarves, books and jars. Especially nice with your accents from Greece. Thanks for stopping by today for TableTop Tuesday. I have tell you that the plates are not heart shaped, but a Photo Mirror Image Flip trick. I thought it was neat that they looked heart shaped, too, and wondered if anyone would comment on that....you are very observant!

  4. Great apothecary jars...I like their lines.

  5. Love all the displays you made. They really turned out nicely.

  6. What pretty vignettes! I love the apothecary jars! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

  8. Oh I love both tables and vignettes. The scarf is wonderful, I love using them, they just add such wonderful softness. Books and apothecary jars are two of my favorite things, so you really have me drooling. I love the addition of the tassel. Perfect. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Beautiful vignettes. Hugs, Marty

  9. I like the table with the brownie camera the best. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  17. Am lovin' the use of scarves in your vignettes! I have a glass top cocktail tables that constantly get smudged, so I like using scarves and fabrics, too! I hate "windexing" those suckers all the time. LOL

  26. Hi Honey,
    Thank you for your comment on my post. I see you have a lot of very nice goodies to show in your blog. I like the jar where you put the pinecones.

  27. I love that camera. Your table tops look so rich and elegant. I spotted your wing back - love it!

  28. Your tables look wonderful. Everytime I put a scarf on a table and kind of scrunch it up a bit, my 3 year old feels she needs to straighten it out. It never fails, one minute scrunched, the next straight and laying perfectly flat to the table. LOL

  29. Honey,

    What beautiful tablescapes you have made! Thank you for sharing them with us, and thanks so much for stopping by to say hello.

    Have a wonderful weekend,

    You know Debbie means seeker of the sweet and this post gave me an overdose of Honey...
    The shapes of the apothecary jars filled with the gorgeous Dried Botanicals...yummy
    and then those Carnelian beads...oh I could have set down in that scrumtous chair and just felt the coolness of the beads...moving them like an accordian from one hand to the other hand and feeling the shapes of the beads...I am not a diamond girl but carnelian, jade, peridot, tanzanite...the exotic stones just melt me.
    stunning post and oh so sweet
    Have A Sugar Sweet Day, Honey
