Table top or Table Under?

I hope there is no law against decorating under tables and in this case, under the cabinet, and I don't get kicked out from these fun memes.
I am linking with Marty of http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/ for Tabletop Tuesday.


I am going to jump a little and I will also link with Artie at http://niagaranovice.blogspot.com/ for Vignette Friday.

Can you guess where these chests and jugs are? I already gave you a hint:-)


How about these? I found the vintage oak chest, actually a flatware chest, but it's empty right now, on Ebay.




I bought the wooden shoe trees from one of the other vendors where my shop is located. Yep, I am not only selling but I am shopping too every now and then, lol. I thought about Kim of Savvy Southern Style when I spotted them and I thought the price was not too bad at $6.50 for the pair. There are some numbers and a letter inscribed on them, one must be the size, 7 and a half, but I do not know what the others stand for.


And there is my under the cabinet vignette.

Looking from the side of the cabinet.


This of course is in the family room, the game room part.
I still have the top of the cabinet to work on but it is too high for me and it's deep. I took a chance putting those 2 glass beverage and punch bowl up there but it made me nervous because there is a drop which I cannot see. I think I will need a step ladder to be able to decorate it.


Thanks to y'all for coming by and commenting and thanks to Marty and Artie for hosting. Now don't forget to visit Marty and her participants today and Artie on Friday.

I say "use every available space you have!" It looks wonderful.

Christine, I like your vignette underneath the china cabinet! Using boxes and vases add so much interest to an otherwise empty space. I love using old shoe lasts. You may remember them from some of my past posts.

HI Christine! I'm just dyeing here seeing all of your pretty things! You have the prettiest 'under the tables' I've ever seen! :)
You're good, I believe I've told you that before. :)
Be a sweetie,

Oh Christine, that looks so pretty. I would never think about putting something under, and yet it is perfect. What a great idea. Love all of your treasures. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Looks great! It's a lot easier to decorate the under than the over!

I love wooden boxes, why is that? Are you telling me we are supposed to decorate under the furniture too? I have a beagle who might be upset if her favorite "under the china cabinet" place to sleep was suddenly filled with things. She'd probably just nose them out of the way. I do like your table under display!

Your Pictures are beautiful! Where is your store?

Your vignettes are so pretty! I never would have thought to put anything under the cabinet and it is truly inspiring!

I was worried about you shopping at the place where your shop is!! ;-D
Are you keeping busy as a shopowner these days?

Happy TT Tuesday!

Sherry said...

Christine,
This is beautiful! Love how you did a vignette under that cabinet. Any space is game to me. For far too long I haven't decorated certain spaces having raised boys, but they are getting older and it is time to decorate it all! Very inspirational!

Christine, why not! Love all the layers...hey, if there's empty space, then something interesting can go there. Love it! Linda

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Christine, I love the shoe forms as you knew I would. You got a great deal on those. I have paid more than that for one.

What a beautiful cabinet! Thanks for your sweet visit to my toile table and your thoughtful comments.

Christine, I think you have enough stock for the store for a LONG time! Beautiful treasure you have there!
No shopping, just selling! :)
