My thrifty items this week was found at an Antique Mall in Cullman, Alabama. They had gotten in a big shipment from Europe.
It is an olive jar from Italy.
There were many jars of different sizes, as well as terracotta tiles from fired ovens.
My jar was $15.00. I thought a great price for an authentic olive jar/vase.
Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
This week my tablescape is very southern, like me sugah! From the blue and white toile dishes, to the fresh cut blue flowers on the table. For place settings I tied on a small tag and wrote in my guest name. It's the dog days of summer. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate that with my homemade chicken salad sandwiches, Pimento Cheese Sandwiches, Cucumber Sandwiches, Gazpacho Soup and Sold my Soul to the Deviled Eggs, some Sweet Tea to drink and for dessert, my homemade Black & Blueberry Cobbler.
And speaking of food.....
What is a tablescape without the food? I invite you to stop by my food blog, PLATES & PLACES, for Foodie Friday! This week I am featuring Italian Style Cauliflower.
If you are interested in my Southern Fare featured in my tablescape above, the links are all direct link to the recipes. Enjoy the dog days of summer!
