A Few Pages From Gollum's Tablescaping Scrapbook
Oh, my. I was trying to replicate one of Betty Lou Phillips' French Country tablescapes, making sure to have an uneven number of objects.
The ball kept rolling off, and the Yorkies would chase it!
The old painting (2 boys) went into the library. A watercolor by a local artist took its place.
Moving right along to the other chest. I used a small tray as a book holder. I love old books.
In the spring, I will place my eggcups on this tray.
Y'all DO know, don't you, that I am a lamp 'ho? Yes. It's true. I hoard lamps and switch them all the time. I even have a Lamp and Pillow Ho Closet.
My friend DeAnn found these egg prints in a Louisiana shop, and since I have chickens, she thought of me. Dr. Gollum bought them for a Valentine's gift (DeAnn and and I orchestrated it, though. lol)
Then DeAnn and Allison helped me hang the prints. I smile every time I feather dust this little vignette. I wish I had an upclose photo of the lamps. They are embellished with little nests and eggs.
Some things come together in a snap; other things need a village, and a friend who thinks of you and says, "You must see these egg prints!"
