It's also Tablescape Thursday so it has to be a party! Tablescape Thursday is hosted by the ever gracious and lovely Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
If you are participating in Thrifty Thursday, be sure to grab yourself a Thrifty Thursday button and let's get started! For those that don't know, Thrifty Thursday is a show and tell of sorts. It is time for you to showcase your thrifty find. It can be an old find or a new one. It might be something that you found at a thrift store, a consignment store, flea market, garage/yard sale, antique store. It's it was a thrifty find, then it meets the requirements. I am not picky, It can be a great pair of boots & a killer vintage dress, jewelry, home decor, even fishing lures. It is your thrifty find. Tell me about it. Where did you find it? What is it? What do you plan to do with it or how do you plan to use it in your home? Do you want to sell it? Thrifty Thursday's are about the thrill of the hunt...and the treasure you found. So....do show and tell!
Again, this week I am going to combine the two for a "Thrifty Tablescape".
The fringed zebra print tablerunner was purchased a couple weeks ago at Hobby Lobby for $8.00. It was regularly priced at $39.00
The black and white plates were a trifty find from Treasures Thrift Store in Pelham. I bought an entire eight piece place setting for also $8.00.
The candlesticks were a bargain find from one of my favorite stores in Homewood, Harmony Landing. Each candlestick was $12.00. Regularly priced at $40.00. I would never pay that much for them, but at $12.00, I thought is was a good deal. They are so pretty and different. I like different. I think it gives an eclectic feel to the tablescape.
My framed painting came from Bombay Company (sniff, sniff...how I miss you). I purchased it for 50% off.
My curtains, I thought they were whimsical. They were used in an antique booth. I asked the dealer if I could buy them (they weren't for sale). She obliged me. She made them using scrap materials (using three fabrics). The rods are actually railing used for steps. She cut it in two. On the end, she had some funky chickens and put them on the ends.
The thing was, after I purchased the curtains, in a rush, I realized that I had another small window that needed to be dressed. Then, I remembered a black and white polka dot bed sheet I had. I grabbed it and literally stretched it across two window knobs (to pull back curtains). That was it. No, they don't match.....but I am a pretty low key person anyway. I don't sweat the small stuff....and my small window was certainly not worth fretting over.
It's not perfect, but really? What is? Besides I get tired of things quickly and like to mix it up. So, it worked.
My Italian bowl full that sits on my table is full of shells . They are treasures of family beach walks. We always save our shells and I pile them in bowls and glass jars around my home. It is a constant reminder of my favorite place to be...by the sea with my family. The bowl was a thrift store find. One of my favorite finds.
That's it! My Thirfty Tablescape!
