Something Old and Something New
I enjoy changing up the foyer table every once in awhile, so here is my latest tablescape. This is the "something old" part of the post since I change the table and share it with you fairly often. I'm also using some pieces that I picked up at Goodwill as well as pewter pieces that I have owned for many years-also a part of the "something old."
I started out using a "bird" type theme for this tablescape, but I think it is really more of a "woodland animals" type theme. Perhaps even an "enchanted forest" theme with the little wooden cottage.
As I mentioned, I have owned these pewter pieces for many, many years. I can't even recall, now, when or where I got them. I just know I like them and it's fun to showcase them on the foyer table.
The bird on the branch is so sweet next to the bunny and kitten.
I felt like the table needed a little something extra, so I added the photo album in the middle of the table. It has birdhouses all along the edges of the cover.
And, I'm still enjoying the canvas blackboard sign on the bottom shelf of the foyer table. I don't know if these are still in stock, but if you are interested in one I bought it at Walmart.
And now for the "something new" part of the post! Meet our newest furry family member-Garden! We adopted her from Brother Wolf (same shelter where we found Cassie) about 1 1/2 weeks ago. Her name is an unusual one and she was given the name by Brother Wolf. We just decided to stick with it. So, we welcome "Garden" to our family!
Garden is a smaller cat than Cassie, but don't let size fool you! She is full of spunk and speed and is not afraid to let her presence be known! We are fairly certain that her mix includes some Siamese which asserts itself in her body build, the way she carries herself, her personality and the shrill "shriek" if things aren't going her way!
She is also a lap cat and loves to be a snuggle bunny-when it suits her!
Poor Cassie had a look of alarm when we first brought Garden home and there have had to be some "adjustments" in our household with two cats living here. But, amazingly, the girls seem to be making peace with one another.
And, our sweet Cassie is getting more used to the idea of being a "big sister" to Garden!
Although, Cassie would like to remind everyone that she is #1 and will always "rule the roost" in this house! (Or, at least, have first dibs on the top of the perch!)
And if that isn't enough animal pics for you, I spied this lovely creature in our backyard today!
So tell me, what is old...or new....in your life? Do take a moment to share. I love to hear from you!
