Tablescape Tuesday – The Blues   23 comments


This was a fun table to put together this week!  I found the blue dishes that were made in England at Goodwill for $2.99 each.  The napkins were an anniversary gift.  The tablecloth is a flat sheet that I had actually used as a bedskirt until I changed the colors in the my guest room.  The blue stemware is plastic.  These are the wine glasses we use for outside entertaining.

The centerpiece is a tin I purchased at Goodwill for $3 and filled with silk hydrangeas that I had.  The candlescape is actually potpouri “strategically placed” and lastly the napkin “rings” are left over Christmas decor I had.  I just added a blue flower from the potpouri pack.

Happy Tablescaping!  For more fun table decorating, head on over to Between Naps on the Porch

Fabulous Goodwill Finds!   8 comments

Went to the Goodwill on Saturday with my sister (a tradition that I wish could happen more often!).  We found some great finds.  I ordinarily do not have good luck in the book department, but this time I found 11 books!  YIKES! I am looking forward to a summer of reading I guess!

The place I like to hang out at when I go to the Goodwill is in the housewares department. I weed through all the dishes to find the hidden treasures.  I was not disappointed this time around! I found this delightful English teapot that I just adore!  I love the shape and the color! My sister found the pretty little teacup and was going to decide against it but I decided to go ahead and get it – at $2.99 I could not resist.

The deep rose colored dishes are also made in England and have different cottage scenes depicted on them. I thought the deviled egg dish was pretty and since I don’t own one I thought it was high time I purchased one!

The tin basket was just too cute to resist and I think it would look good with some plants or for ice at a garden party!  think I did pretty good!  All in all a fabulous day at the Goodwill!
