Tabletop Tuesday Early

Since I will be in the chemo chair this Tuesday and I have other doctor appts. Monday, I am stretching it a bit and posting my Tabletop Tuesday today. This is a wonderful meme hosted by Marty at A Stroll Thru Life. My pictures are of my spring display on my hutch in the living room.

This picture was painted for me by my dear friend Kathy at Mimi's Garden.

Yep, those are the famous Dollar Tree birds...I have seen them painted, glittered...mine are just as they were bought.

This little bird came from Cindy at Applestone Cottage when she came for an AZ luncheon.

This little resin birdhouse was a gift from my daughter last year....

My Teal spring tag from Karen at Some Days are Diamonds.

Cracker Barrel birdie from a couple of years ago in my favorite cloche.

Morning lady, what a thrill to log on and see you here. I will have you in prayer for Tuesday.
Now you know how much I love your house and this chest is so pretty in your entry. All of your cloches are my favorites. I especially love that teeny tiny one with the egg. All of your nests are so pretty, and what a fabulous idea to put the birds on top of candlesticks. Beautiful vignette in such a pretty room. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

Good Morning CeeKay Sweetie...
Beautiful post, everything looks so beautiful. I love it.

The Dollar Tree birds look so elegant perched on the candle sticks. I just love our little birds from Cindy. Your blue one sure came to life didn't he?

I love the way you have your cloche's scattered about and such beautiful Spring amongst them. The tag from Karen looks gorgeous on your cloche. Thank you for sharing sweetie.

I will be praying for good appointments tomorrow and a good treatment on Tuesday (as good as can be), but no reactions from the drugs that is what we are praying for. Please keep me posted. I am holding you up in prayer sweetie.

I will be leaving early Friday and then will be back on Sat. April 24th. I will check on you when I return.

Many hugs CeeKay and much, much love...Sherry

Hi Ceekay! Your tabletop looks so pretty. I love that you did it with several gifts you've received from friends. That's so sweet and it seems that people know you well.

So lovely with all the birds, cloche and lovelies.

Best to you in your treatment. I am always thinking of you.

Hi Ceekay,
Very nice display! Love the little birdies and the painting of the robin! I'll be thinking of you and praying for you. Take care.

Ceekay, your vignettes are perfect for spring. Great job. Glad you shared them. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow and Tuesday. Hope all goes well for you, dear one. Hugs ~ Sarah

What a beautiful way to celebrate spring! Thanks for sharing!

Love all the birdies! Good Luck on your treatment tomorrow!

The Berry's Patch said...


It is definitely spring at your house. I love how you have everything arranged. That little blue bird is just the sweetest thing. You've inspired me to do a little decorating on my buffet. I'm going to collect a few of my birds around the house.

Stay strong girl!


Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh I adore the painting that your friend did. I will be praying for you dear one.

I am peeking out of my turtle shell to say thank you for your kindness and support. Make sure you read the ole blog today. There is an invitation for you. There will be karoke and I think I will sing "Stayin' Alive". Duet?

Hi Ceekay, I will be praying for you this week. I know you have a lot on your plate...and yet here you are with the most beautiful displays ever. Your home is so warm and charming and I love the little birds and nests and how you display them. And the little egg candle is precious. where you get all this cuteness I will never know but I love all of it.
Give yourself a big hug from me.
I will be praying.

Karen said...

Good morning my dear friend.
I agree with everything Sweet Sherry said. Lots of prayers for good days, FABULOUS treatments, (and you know what I mean by that), and no reactions at all to the drugs.
I love my little bird from Cindy as well. She is just too sweet. I just loved meeting with all of you again - how fun is it that I am allowed this opportunity to be part of the AZ Blogger's group and I come from California!
Love your entry - course, I love every flippin' square inch of your home. The next time you have the energy to get on a ladder - while Dear Sweet Hubbie IS HOME WITH YOU - take pictures of the "window" above the tv. That space is just fabulous and I know everyone would want to see it. And if I'm having an "over 50" moment and you've already posted it and I've forgotten, just post it again, cause if I've forgotten, chances are - some others have as well. (hehehe)
Lots of hugs and prayers!

Hi Ceekay,
Everything is so lovely and so springy! Love all the little birdies and that egg shell is just too cute. Hope everything goes well the next couple of days, you are always in my thoughts!

Shelia said...

Hi Ceekay! Oh, I love seeing your display. Your cloches are so beautiful and that tall one, well, I'm coveting it just a bit! :) Love what you've poked under them too.
Ceekay, know you're in my prayers and I pray all goes well at your doctors appt. and the treatment. Love you.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I love all the signs of spring on your table. I'm enjoying the real birds outside, but don't have many inside for decorations. Yours look so cute.
You're in my prayers.

Angie said...

So pretty and Springy! Love your cloches.

Yellow Rose Arbor said...

I like all your little birdie displays! Great job!

I'll be thinking about you tomorrow! Joe and I spend the day in Jacksonville at Mayo Clinic for his yearly check-up with his chemo oncologist.

Ceekay, I have been thinking about you and will keep you in my prayers for tomorrow. I hope it goes well. Thanks so much for joining the party. I appreciate it. Hugs, Marty

Oh...somehow I have missed (or forgotten--who knows with my brain!) the fact that you have cancer... I just said a prayer for you. I have been reading a really good book this week called, :"Anti Cancer A new Way of Life". It is written by David Servan-Schreiber, MD, PhD. It has been so interesting. He is a researcher at University of Pittisburgh (sp?) and he had brain cancer and when it returned a second time he decided to look into what he could do for himself to help inhibit the growth of his cancer (along with the standard treatment). In the book he explains what makes "cancer cells thrive and what inhibits them and offers empowering stratagies to prevent their growth". He is so interesting and gives list of foods etc that have been very effective in inhibiting the growth of existing cancers, along with other things that really help our bodies to fight it. I have just reached the age where my mom was when she got cancer and I have my mamogram in about a month. I hope to put this book to use!

Love the birds on your table!!

Kathryn @ Bonafide Southern said...

Ceekay, I just love all of your bird decor! What a smart idea to put those little birdies on candlesticks. I'm definitely going to remember that. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a good week!

Sonia said...

Will be praying for your dearheart...that you keep up your strength during treatments. I love your cloche display! So pretty and the bird, nest and accessories are so pretty! If you haven't visited lately come by..I'm having a giveaway for Pottery Barn. Take care!

CeeKay, What a beautiful post. I love your bird themed table vignette. I collect nests too and love displaying them under cloches. My mom just gave me a hummingbird nest. So tiny!
I'll be thinking of you today and sending good thoughts your way for an easy time during and after the chemo. xoxo Delores

I am reading this on Tuesday and hoping that chemo will go well for you today.
I really enjoyed this post as I love anything bird related. You have a lot of pretty things and have displayed them so well. That little painting is especially sweet.

Blondie's Journal said...

This is a lovely table filled with beautiful gifts, Ceekay. I love everything. You have a thing for birds just like I do! I love the Dollar Tree birds. I hear they have some great spring/garden items. I need to go!! Your cloches are all fabulous. I love how you change them out!

Hope you are having a good week.


Atticmag said...

Ceekay, you're a gutsy lady to be posting to a party the day before a treatment so I say brava! And I'll be sending really good thoughts your way. Happy, healthy ones. Jane F.

Susan said...

Beautiful! Always enjoy looking at your goodies.

Have a great week!

Rettabug said...

Lovely collection of birdies & cloches, Ceekay! You amaze me with all that you are able to accomplish, Honey. You put me to shame!

I hope your feet are healing with the suspension of the chemo for a bit. Its great to hear that it is working.
You must feel like you're on a tightrope, trying to balance all this.


I just love your tablesetting with the bird theme. I love little birds and have a small collection myself , but I am always on the lookout for more. Thanks for sharing your lovely setting with us.

Celestina Marie said...

HI Ceekay, Your table is just full of special gifts and displayed in only the way you can do. Simply gorgeous. Love the cloches and the nests and birds. The birds on the candlesticks are my favorite. I hope everything went good yesterday.
Many prayers for you sweet friend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie
