Birds of a feather.....Tablescape Thursday!!!

I am taking a break from all the packing, cleaning, packing, laundry, packing, painting, did I mention packing? lol.... anyway, I have been working on a Birds Tablescape for awhile now collecting and waiting for everything to come together. As of last week I had everything that I needed except for the tablecloth and I have been looking high and low and everywhere in between for just the right one. I couldn't find anything! nowhere! I was getting discouraged and I decided to make a run to Target and although they had nothing that I thought would work alas.... upon walking down the bath aisle (thanks to my friend Liz, who noticed them first :) )  I came across the most beautiful bird bathroom decor. I just loved it and it was the right colors and well.....I'm sure you know where this is going. Yes, I did...I purchased the shower curtain. (just under $20.00 including tax) The next day, the beautiful shower curtain was laid across the table and wa-lah a tablescape was born!! I am so in love with this setting that I am going to leave it on the table for the home staging and pictures for the realtor.

Linking to: Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday!!

Shower Curtain made Tablecloth from Target

This beautiful set of dishes that included Plates, Saucers and Teacups were purchased at a Flea Market in Flemingsburg, Ky and you will never believe the price that I paid for these..... $4.00 for the whole set!!! They were on a clearance table in a back room and as soon as I spotted them they were mine! The bottom of the plates say....Colonial Taylor Smith & Taylor Platinum Blue. I just love them and they match this setting Plum Perfectly!  

The "bird tidbit dish" I purchased at Cracker Barrel on Clearance for $1.49 each.
I just LOVE these!! 

The bird napkin rings came from Savers and I believe they were $2.99 for the set.

This gorgeous cookie jar is what started the whole thing! I have had it about a year now and I purchased it at Thrift Store in LaFollette, Tn and paid $5.00 for it. It is from Cracker Barrel as well!!

This beautiful large bowl was another Thrift Store find here in Jacksonville, Ar and it was only $4.00.
It is by: Creative Co-Op
The smaller stand inside was a Goodwill purchase and it was $2.50.
Perhaps some cheese cubes on the green stand and some bread in the bowl?  

These darling little birds came from Gordmans and they were $1.99 each.

Thank You so much for flying in and visiting today!
I also have the Dinning Room Buffet decorated in Birds as well so keep an eye open for that posting! (coming soon)
