The Table Lady

Hello Everyone!
Just call me the table lady...;)
I went shopping with my birthday gift card at my
favorite store Kirklands and what did I find?
Yes, another table. Every single time I go shopping I
find one to put somewhere. It's getting to be quite funny.
I counted and believe it or not I have a total of 31 tables.
What? I think I earned my nickname don't you?
I'll take you on a tour of them soon.
Join me and check out my newest one.
I love red and tables so this one worked perfectly for me.
It's a bump out wall in our dinette so this was a nice spot.
I added the fall flowers, word picture and potpourri holder.
I realized the coffee prints were not quite right here
anymore so I shopped the house and switched them.
I hung these tuscan style prints instead.
Much better don't you think?
I put the coffee prints hanging next to the coffee pots
and now it looks like a cafe. We do enjoy our coffee.
One more view. It's a cheerful corner now.
I can't believe I left it blank all these years.
Have a great weekend!

You also have it accessorized beautifully. Fabulous piece. Thanks also for your sweet Birthday wishes. I've had a super day. You love tables and I always stop at chairs. lol That's why my BD money is goind for another chair. Before long I will probably have to hang them from the ceiling. lol Hugs, Marty

Tara@JustDevineStyle said...

Just adorable! I love it and the color of course. It is okay to be the table lady when they are all so cute. I love all the tables you have shown us pictures of. I guess it may not be a problem till you have to start removing couches and such to fit the tables in. lol

Mississippi Girl said...

What an adorable little table. I need something about that same size for a corner in my den. I love Kirkland's and I can always find nice things at great prices. Their sales staff is so helpful and welcoming.

We're getting the remnants of a tropical depression today and it is raining cats and dogs. Hope everyone is staying dry and cool!!

God bless.

Thanks so much for stopping by...I am trying to get time back for blogging...slowly but surely!
Is your hubby away again? My S-I-L is out now and they have moved to Baltimore...so nice to have them only about an hour away rather than 9 hrs. away!
Your new blog design is very sharp! Very nice!
Happy (belated) Birthday! I hope you did something special for yourself!
It has been a HOT summer...I will be glad to usher in some cooler weather! We've had an unusual summer...but it's ok!
You take care...touch base with an update, ok?!

Ok, this made me totally giggle. 31 tables? Thirty-one? Baha! You have got to give us a tour. This new table is precious & fits perfectly in that niche! :)

I like all your coffee pots, too. You are so cute. The coffee pictures are perfect by the coffee pots! Do you buy anything singular? Teehee. :)

What a fantastic little table! Love the color and it fits that spot perfectly!

Gypsy Heart said...

This is so funny ~ 31 tables! and how many coffee pots?? :-) Truly, I love the table...looks great! Red is certainly my color ~ always attracts me, regardless of what it is.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend. It's still extremely hot ~ 14 or 15 days of consecutive triple digits. After a bit, we just lose track. Heat warning is still in effect too. Come on October! :-)

Mary Ellen said...

Oh my Melissa I do think you take the prize for the most tables!! My son years ago counted all the Christmas trees I had in our then small house- I think I had close to 50- that's the only time I counted how many of something I had- Oh yes, he also counted how many articles of clothing I had when I complained one Sunday before church that I had nothing to wear. WE will not say how big that # but suffice to say I stopped complaining about that one!

I love this sweet table!!

bee blessed

Memento - Terri said...

You have earned The Table Lady title! I have been looking for a small side table for our foyer and I never thought of looking at Kirkland’s. I tried Home Goods and others. I laughed when I saw your coffee station. We LOVE coffee at our house too. We make 3 pots min a day and some days 4. Decaf for the pm coffee unless I have lots of orders to do!

Pamela Rosenberg said...

love the red and the tassel sets it off perfectly.
A girl can never have too many tables. :)

I love me a good deal! ;)

Blooming Rose Musings said...

This is my first time visiting and I had to leave a comment on this post because I am also a table person. Every time I go antiquing my friends laugh at me because I always come home with some sort of table! So, your post "spoke" to me.
I really enjoy your blog and have become a follower. If you ever have a chance I would love you to stop by my blog and say hello.
