Cross Table

Hello and thanks for stopping by for a visit.  I have mentioned that my Mom downsized and I was lucky enough for her to gift me was some special pieces of furniture. The piece I'm showing you today is a little console table.


I placed it between the garage door and the back stairs. It is old and needs some sprucing up.  It also has a mirror that goes with it, but as you can see I have my cross collection on this wall. I am trying to decide should  I should paint it or strip and refinish.


My favorite things on the table are these cute little glitter angels in front of the iron cross. I love the contrast.




This cross floral arrangement I got back in the fall and thought it looked right at home with all the crosses on the wall.




And you all know how us Southern Girls love a monogram.  The candle I picked up at HG and smells of gardenia. It is so yummy!



Here is another picture of the "cross wall". I only started collecting a few months ago and my wall is almost complete.  It started with one I found and then I was seeing them everywhere.  I guess this is how a collection starts!

Thanks for stopping by, and I really enjoy all your comments.

That is a very nice piece that your mom gave up...hope she doesn't change her mind? You have done a great job arranging your cross collection. I love how different they are and yet they all really work together!

Your crosses are wonderful. They remind me of the crosses I saw all throughout the countryside on my bicycle ride from the top to the bottom of France last fall.

LOVE your cross collection! That's how it starts - innocently enough. You buy one, then you spot another, then one day, you wonder where they all came from! Keeping them together really makes an impact over that fabulous little console.

What a beautiful idea to have a cross wall. It looks perfect there and the little table is just the thing. So nice that when she downsizes, you get to upsize. Thanks for stopping by Quirky Vistas to say hello. Fun to hear that my window was like something in BHG. I hadn't seen the item you referenced that I know of. So that's Cool!
