Table Top Tuesday


Good Morning Friends! 


This is just a little peek at a shelf in my family room.  It's a fun place to layer and move things around. 


You can barely see the picture of my boys taken so long ago.
Having new family pictures taken in the next week or two is on our list of things to do!

Time flies too quickly for me.

When did you last have pictures made?

"A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams."

That is such a great quote, Stacey!

Time really does zip by. Our last family photos were taken when our older son was married - can it really be five years ago? It sure is! :)

Such a lovely vignette. I love the corner of your pic of your boys. How wonderful to have new photos done. They do grow up so fast. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Darlene said...

Your vignette is beautiful on your little shelf. It has been quite a while since we had professional pictures taken. We usually set up the camera on the tripod and get pictures.♥

Family photos are precious and show how we all change through time. Thanks for visting me today and introducing me to your blog.

I have 3 boys and love displaying photos of them all together! One day they will be men so it is important to snap those photos now! The last professional shots were taken before summer vacation.

We have 3 big ones done but since the kids all got married..it's been hard to gather everyone at one time! I like the shelf ;D

Manuela@TPOH said...

Love your vignette! We don't have pictures done. I think we had one professional family portrait done about 5 years ago.

Kirsten said...

Love it! You may have just inspired me to get some family photos taken...my boys are 7 and 10 and I've never had a stuidio shot done with the three of us :-)

Just a little something from Judy said...

It is so good that you are having another family photo taken. I think that is very important. Your mantel looks beautiful. You have a gift in decorating and creating creative vignettes.

Hi Stacey! Love your vignette. I'm coveting, just a little, well a whole lot, the transferware dish you have the green in.! Oh, it's lovely.
It's always great to have new pictures made.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Sue said...

Your mantel vignette looks so pretty, Stacey. I love the transferware planter and that plate behind it. Do you know we have never had a family picture done- Our son hates taking pics- he does the fake smile and closes his eyes! I am not photogenic either. aaaggghhhh....
I am content with candid shots; they usually come out a lot better. :-)
hugs, Sue

I just can't even remember the last time we had a photo shoot. I guess I should try to get everyone together for one again.
Blessings~

The last time I had pictures made was about 25 yrs ago. Yikes!

Your shelf is a great spot for family photos. Love the color too.
Stop on over, there's a giveaway.

Hi Stacey,
I'm new into your decoration blogs "sphere2, but I enjoy each of your vignettes!!
I live in Menorca a small island in the Mediterranean, andmy mom has an identical transferdish (is that the word you use for his?), english style we call, from our british inheritage I'm afraid.
I'd really love to see one of them so far away...
Congratulations and kind regards from Spain

Stacey! You really should think about coming to Abilene for High Cotton Art Camp, October 15 & 16! Women will gather for a weekend of art, fun, laughter, discovery and friendship. I will be one of eight instructors. I'm really excited about it. You can get more info at www.highcottonartcamp.blogspot.com
Would you consider displaying a button on your blog? Either way...big hug to you Stacey!

Pam said...

What a pretty vignette. That clock is great. Love the red. I have NEVER had formal portraits of our family done. No idea why not, but now I'm thinking I really need to now before my son gets much older.

Brenda@Cozy Little House said...

Love the spurts of red!

Melissa Miller said...

Very nicely displayed Stacey. I love that red clock. I remember when you found that sweet gem.

I would enjoy seeing more photos of little Sophie! She is so cute. I'll bet she is precious with her saucer. Chestnut is just plain loud and demanding when it's time for his treat. He's such a big spoiled fluffball. *Smiles*

OK, you are on a role. Where have you been, I am loving your comments. You are right about the sitting and blogging thing I have just started a work out program. Did you see my post about... I love bit B... bohineys, (baskets) Haha, do you know I cannot reply by email to your comments? You have the no blogger reply email thing. That is why I am rambling on here.
