White Wednesday... Porcelain Alphabet Orbs...

Last week, I showed you a box of Porcelain Alphabet Orbs that I purchased at TJ Maxx... I thought I'd display them on my living room coffee table in a wire basket... trouble was... I didn't have the type of wire basket I wanted to put them in... So Tuesday at lunch, I stopped by Marshall's (brother to TJ Maxx)... and found this... perfect... and only $4.99. What a deal!

So I took my Orbs (I love that name... Orbs), from their box...

and placed them randomly in my new wire basket... and placed the basket on my coffee table...

O-R-B-S...
kinda reminds me of Alphabet Eggs in a Basket...

Pretty WHITE Porcelain Alphabet O-R-B-S...

I think this is going to be a lot of F-U-N...
down here in French Lique...
Happy White Wednesday!

Good luck on that fairy search at the tower, hope you find a good one.
Maybe they will be attacked by the sweet aroma of lavender...

Great idea, Dixie, displaying the 'orbs' in a basket! And how lucky to find exactly what you needed at Marshall's. I have been meaning to make a trip there, but I always drop a bundle!!

Hope you are not having this cold, strange weather down by you!

The basket is P-E-R-F-E-C-T! You are going to have too much fun with this. Isn't it fun to be easily amused, I know I'm glad I am lol. Did you warm up yesterday? We hit 65 - yippee! Have a great week. Kathy

I like the idea, Dixie. I have my apple collection displayed in a basket.

Very pretty and creative, I like the look and the basket just sets them off.
I can also see a game coming from these.

Orbs....I like that word too! I almost bought those too but I couldn't quite figure out how to display them and figured my husband would laugh me out of the house. Oh well, it wouldn't be the first time he didn't quite get my decorating style!
Anyway, your o-r-b-s are really cool looking and I love the basket.
Happy Orbing!

Orbs...just the kind of word you'd read in a romance novel...oh wait...that's a different kind of orb. My bad!
I'm telling you...I would run away with Maxx or brother Marshall in a heartbeat. I cannot go in either store without buying something and it's always good stuff. Love the orbs...good orbs!
