on the coffee table


I am joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday. These roses inspired the vignette. Be sure to visit Marty and see what others have topped their tables with today.

The watch was my grandfather’s and has been reunited with its cloche-like home.

Oh, Carol, the roses are to die for gorgeous!! I love the precious watch, how neat you have it.

Pop over for our lovely CSN GIVEAWAY!

Have a beautiful New Year ~
Hugs, Marydon

That is truly lovely, Carol, and I adore the engraving on the back. What a beautiful heirloom. Perfect display, too.

What a treasure and you display it beautifully, trimmed by those roses in pale pink!

The roses are beautiful and it is lovely to have such a wonderful memento of your grandfathers.
I received some beautiful cream roses today from our lunch guests, I must take some photographs of them tomorrow, and hopefully I will show them on my blog in a day or so!!

How nice that you have a watch that belonged to your grandfather. I don't have anything that belonged to my grandparents. I am trying to get an antique wood carved chest that belong from my parents, shipped to me from the Philippines. Your photos are fabulous, Carol. Happy New Year!...Christine

Beautiful flowers. My oldest son has my fathers Railroad watch and has it in a cloche like that. He treasures it as I did. Have a great day.

The roses are so delicately colored and beautiful. What a nice treasure to have your grandfather's watch. Did he make the cloche home for it?

I can hardly wait for roses and blooms again!

There's something so very special about a man's pocket watch.
