Today my Thirfty Thursday is my Tablescape!!!
I recently photographed a wedding with my photograher friend, Charnita. It was a real blessing to do it because I feel as though that I came away with some new friends. These beautiful people.
And guess what...these beautiful people also have great taste! Lucky for me!
They had a yard sale recently, so I dropped by and walked away with some wonderful "loot", which included my "new" dishes.
The dishes look like poppies and are in solid white.
They are made by Mikasa and are called "Flower Basket White". So charming!
I should've shown you the mugs and bowls too, but the plates-the salad plates and the little "show stoppers" to me. The large plates, cereal bowls, serving bowls, mugs and creamer and sugar all feature the weave pattern like the dinner plate. I got a set of 8 for $15.00 the set inluded all of that I mentioned above. Worth every penny. And I am quite certain it may just be one of my favorite yard sale purchases.
Speaking of yard sales and thriftness...lets take a look around the rest of the table...
The stacked rocks....you might recall. I picked up a trunk load here....for free.
The rocks inside the hurricane globes didn't come from pottery barn....no they came from the Dollar Tree. That's 3 bags between the two vases. The larger globe is sitting on a wooden stand I found at the thrift for 98 cents. The birds, tablescapers will recall, are from Target.
The very nice bottle of wine was a gift from my dear friend, "High Mae". She turned 40 last November and went to Nappa Valley and returned with this thoughtful delight. We are waiting for the perfect occassion of celebration to open it! The silver cup it is sitting in, another thift find for $1.88.
I also found the scalloped candle holders at the thrift. I got four for 99 cents. The mercury glass candle holder (small) I found at my favorite store, AT HOME in Homewood. They were less than three bucks each. I purchased three. I just love the look of mercury glass, so vintage. I use it year round.
Thanks to all of you for stopping by and participating in today's Thrifty Thursday.
