Ready for Tabletop Tuesday

Tabletop Tuesday - Ready to Entertain

Maybe this fits more under a tablescape, but if you
look closely I am featuring my peacocks that I love so dearly. My mother had these on her mantel in her home for
several years that I was aware of. I had no idea they would be considered an "heirloom" but after looking at pictures of
my grandmother's home back in the 1950's, I saw them on
her mantel as well. That was AFTER I had chosen them to be a part of my household after the passing of my parents.
They can still be found in antique stores I have been told... and if I saw one or a pair someday in a store... I would then
start my "peacock rescue club".

Today I am linking to
A Stroll Thru Life
for Marty's 44th
Tabletop Tuesday.

Visit Marty for some very inspiring photos!

Just beautiful, Karen...both your table setting and your story. Some of my favorite things are those that are now in my home that I remember being lovingly used in my grandmothers' homes...thank-you for sharing!

I hope you're having a lovely Christmas week, my friend!
