Well, Spring has officially sprung...it's in the air (literally, the pollen is terrible) and it's in the sales! Garage/Yard Sales I mean. They are plentiful this time of year. Last weekend my mother and I hit quite a few. I loaded up on clothing for my tween, Sister Sledge. I got her 2 pair of Lucky brand jeans (I dont even own any myself, I refuse to pay dept store price on them), many tops and a couple pair of shorts with brand names of J Crew, Banana Republic, A&F & Ann Taylor Loft.

The little navy peacoat is J Crew. My daughter wanted one so badly this past winter. I guess she will have one now for the fall! And my favorite is that teal Loft top with the floral fabric around the neckline. Precious!
All these were $1.00 each! I love that Payless slogan, "Why pay more when you can pay less?" It's true.Had I just brought the 2 pair of lucky jeans I would've thought it a successful day. The others were bonuses.
I also purchased this pretty lantern and candle for $3.00. It currently sits on my back porch on the table for family suppers by candleight. Did I mention how I love this weather? I love that we can enjoy family meals outdoors.
Finally, this set of 8 glasses. They are intended for alcoholic drinks, I am certain. But my resident pirate, J Smooth, I knew would enjoy them. And they make perfect size glasses for him. I hate it when he gets a large glass from the cabinet, fills it full and then doesnt drink it...wasting OJ, coke...what have you. This will avoid that and he will LOVE these. Set of 8=$1.50
My off sense of humor finds it funny how they all have "poisons" on the side of the glasses.
"What's your pleasure?" Not arsentic. But J Smooth thinks it's funny.
That was my sale bargains. It's funny how one week you walk away with all clothes and the next you might find an outdoor patio set. You just never know.
Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
My tablescape this week is a simple neutral one, using some of my favorite colors in nature: white and light blue. I used a natural grasscloth placemat. Glasses are light greenish blue.
I mentioned our eatting outdoors.
What is a tablescape without the food?
I invite you to stop by my food blog, PLATES & PLACES. Tomorrow I will announce a foodie giveaway...something you will want in your kitchen! Last week something came up and I forgot to post. I promise I will tomorrow! You can click here to find out more. You will NOT want to miss this one!
