Thrifty Thursday And Show And Tell Friday


I found an incomplete set of seashell dishes at GW. Which is fine with me, because The amount was just right, neither too few nor too many. I've been keeping my eyes open for something white and beachy looking for my hutch. When I came across these, I couldn't pile them into my cart fast enough! I added my own round plates and teapot with the display.
I also found four tall crackle-glass glasses also from GW.

I found these little bird shaped, tea light holders at The Dollar Store.
The set of dishes came with six mugs. Again, not too few, nor too many.


I found two new green pillow shams, which I used in the Tablescape Thursday post below as a table runner.




They're brand new, even though they're from a thrift store. They look and feel clean and crisp and ready for a fresh new year.



Crate&Barrel or Pottery Barn are two brands I love to look for at thrift stores.

I would've done cartwheels down the GW aisle, had I found those dishes. I kid you not! You lucked out! Beautiful! I also lOVe the pillows! Pretty combination!
Sorry I am so late. As it ended up, we did have a (6 hour) 2AM-8Am stint in the ER with my son. Praise God, all is ok. But,it's taken me some time to recover from being up all night. Alas, I am late in getting around to everyone this week. My apologies.
Sincere thanks for linking up to Tales from Bloggeritville Thrifty Thursday!

HUGS,
Leigh
