Everyday favourite

I am lucky to have many pretty thing in my home. But my unlikely everyday favourite is still this battered old table. These are just three scenes from the life of that table today. Miscellaneous items, lunch and afternoon coffee with a side of scrap book. What's on your table top?

On my table: paint brushes, markers, paper napkins, scraps and clips, last nights tea cup, magazines, books, my old and aged art board, pencils, folders holding files of inspired images, and autumn leaves brought in from the park across the street...just the way I like it. ;)

Your table always looks so beautifully presented. Mine is hiding under sewing machine, ribbon, and mountains of fabric!

Love these photos! That well-worn table is rather fantastic and so cosy and suiting for Autumn.

On my family's table is books and souvenirs from the Harry Potter theme park that I went to earlier this week. :)

I too adore that tabletop of yours. I love the colour, the grain, the way the light falls on it. On my tabletop is a rumpled tablecloth, a bunch of instax and polaroids, cameras and bills. Not so pretty.

on my tabletop I currently have a mountain of fabric for my son's room and about three or four other unfinished projects. Sometimes I look at it and see chaos, other times I see creativity!

Love this tabletop. Mine is always covered in books and coffee mugs, a scented candle and fresh flowers, when I'm lucky!

I've got an autumn scene on my table with a colorful fabric leaf runner, candles, glittery pumpkin and acorns we collected in Maine.
