A Tablescape with Thrifty Goodwill Dishes

I'm back home after having been in TN for a couple weeks helping my parents recuperate from being in the hospital.
This tablescape was done today and was very last minute. Very simple today ladies.....

Goodwill teapot $3.00

This gorgeous little dish came from Karen at Briarside Lane. She sent it to me 
for being her 100th follower!! What a sweetie she is and I just love the dish!!
THANK YOU Karen!! Stop by Briarside Lane and pay Karen a visit, I'm sure
she would be delighted to have you! 

These beautiful dishes are from Goodwill and were $8 for the entire set!!
They are Imperial China "Just Spring"

Vintage Sears tablecloth was purchased at Goodwill for $2. It was new in the package!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful week!
