Tabletop Tuesday

Hi All,
Tonight I am linking up with Marty and A Stroll Thru Life and Tabletop Tuesday. Here is the vignette atop of my tv cabinet.

Here is a vintage picture of my beloved Granny and her "three little boys", as she always called them. My Dad is standing beside her, the middle one, Uncle Frank, now deceased, is to Granny's left, the oldest, and Buddy the baby, is seated in front. I love this picture. As you know, I love my TV, so I look at the precious picture, alot :) Buddy will be visiting next Monday for the week for our county fair. I will put him up at one of the cottages at the Inn. He and my Dad will have a good time. Me too! We all miss that 3rd "little boy," tho. Miss you Uncle Frank.
Some garland that I purchased at my favorite gift and housewares shop, draped across a vintage tablecloth.




The wreath is Valerie Parr Hill, from QVC. I will change it out soon with her fall wreath. Yippee!!!

Robin what a sweet tribute to our granny and her 3 little boys! I am so happy to hear that you will be able to spend time together, even though it is without one of the boys. Have a wonderful time together.

I love pictures of my parents when they were children - they look so winsome.
Have a lovely time with your dad and your uncle!

What a wonderful picture of your Granny and her three boys. I don't blame you a bit having it in a place where you can see it often. I hope that my Granny and yours are having fun together!!

Lots of love,
