Welcome To The 18th Masterpiece Monday

God's masterpiece......


 While taking a picture of our avocado tree in our backyard, I noticed something else.

 A humming bird's nest! With two precious babies inside, thier eyes not even opened yet.
 The nest is so intricate with little pieces of leaves woven on the outside and pieces of lint lining it. Truly a miracle to see!
 For my own masterpiece this week, I'm showing a couple of thrifty finds and adding them to a table scape.

 I used my .50 cent tray from last week to display a new glass pitcher from GW.
 Everything else I had already and hubby picked the rose for me from our yard.


 I love the detail on this aluminum tray!
 I stopped by a yard sale today and saw a box marked "free". After poking around a bit, I found two really cute owl candle holders. The inside candles were long burned out. So I just stuck a little votive candle inside and they're good as new!


 Everything I used on the table, I already had on hand, the dishes....


 and my favorite table cloth. The only exception was...........

 My other great yard sale find this weekend was this vintage ice cream maker for $3.00! I decided to use it for  the centerpiece. I gleaned some flowery branches from outside and added the remaining rununcula's from Trader Joe's.

Love your table with the ice cream maker taking center stage as the holder of flowers! Hummingbird nests are so tiny I am surprised you spotted it...the babies are so cute. Thanks for sharing, Mary.

Hi Mary,

I'm your newest follower. I just LOVE this table!! The vintage ice cream maker with mixed flowers looks straight out of a magazine. And your embroidered tablecloth is beautiful. Your GW vase is such a pretty find. Please stop by and visit my blog is you have a chance. I usually try to participate in Tablescape Thursdays. Have a great weekend!

Great hummingbird photos! They are the sweetest little birds.

Your table is wonderful. I love that you used the old ice cream machine as a centerpiece. Very cool. I'm also in love with that beautiful tablecloth; I can see why it is one of your favorites.

Lovely vignette with your new pitcher and those cool glasses on the vintage aluminum tray. Love!
Tammy
