New Pedestal Tables and Blue Jewelry Casket

These 2 pictures have been added. I just wanted to show you how the top of the table looks like.

It's Met and Blue Monday hosted by Susan of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ and Sally of http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ respectively. For more interesting metamorphoses and gorgeous blues, go visit them and their other participants.




You might recall me showing you this pair of Sevres egg compotes a while back for Blue Monday. They are too big that I had a hard time finding pedestal tables to fit them so I just left them in the dining room floor.

Last week, I finally found 2 tables big enough to accomodate them. They are 21 inches in diameter. I placed them in two corners of the living room. I gave the tables to John for an anniversary present.


How do you like them? Here is the other one.





I would also like to show you a blue Sevres porcelain jewel casket with bronze ormolu.







It has painted flowers inside.


It is sitting on the side table of the living room.


I hope you enjoyed my little contribution for today. Thanks for coming.




Susan and Sally, thank you for hosting yet another fun event.

Christine, I will need to borrow Mr. Magpie's computer to email you. Something is goofy with mine where I can't click on a blog and email. So I will catch up with you soon about figuring out how to enlarge pictures. Thanks SO much for the offer to tell me how to do it. I was afraid I might lose my entire blog!

XO,

Sheila :-)
