Sango---Green & Black Tablescape

A very simple glass candlelight centerpiece is all that's needed for this evening dinner tablescape.
To tie in the color of the green on the plates I added some long beaded stems and shaped them around the glass. 

I just love my beautiful stemware that I received as a Hostess Gift from Princess House years ago. I hosted a party for a friend and was able to get the stemware for FREE. (Tip) Having a home show/party is a great way to get some of your favorite items for little to no cost.

The beautiful Sango plates with the ever so lovely Lily pattern was a terrific Goodwill find.
All they had were the plates and saucers BUT they were .50 each!!
I also like the square shape of the plates with the rounded edges.
Sometimes it's nice to have something different from the everyday circle plate shape.

These gorgeous black wavy square plates were FREE!!
I got them from a lady on Freecycle.
For those of you that have never heard of Freecycle it is a yahoo group that allows people to post items that they want to give away for FREE only. It started out being a way for people to pass along good usable items to keep them going to the landfill.
I have seen all sorts of things listed on there, and of course I give away items as well to return the favor.
And, it's all FREE!

The circle plate that I am using as a charger was a Flea Market find and they were on a clearance table  for .60 each.
 They worked out perfectly for this setting.

My tablecloth is nothing more than a $5.00 sheer curtain from the Family Dollar Store.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your day is Plum Perfect!!

Thrifty Fiesta Finds and More

About a month or so ago while visiting with my parents we stopped in at the local Thrift store and I found some FABULOUS deals!

This is a set of 6 ceramic napkin rings that I bought for .90!

I just loved these beautiful silver roses, once again .90!

Are you ready????
 These are Fiesta napkin rings that I picked up for $1.91!!!
(insert squeals and a happy dance) 

And yet another set of Fiesta napkin rings also priced at $1.91.

(insert angels singing) lol.... 

Wait for it........

A THIRD set of Fiesta napkin rings for $1.91
(insert Hallelujah  Chorus)

I could NOT believe what I was seeing, I may as well have stolen them from the store 
I mean.....WOW, the timing on this shopping trip was most definitely Plum Perfect!

We also made a stop at the local Goodwill and I found these napkins.
The floral ones were .49 each and the others were only .29 each.

A pretty squared toile  table topper for .99

Another squared table topper for .99

And lastly do you remember my Rhapsody in Blue Tablescape?
I bought the set of dishes for $10 at the same Goodwill, well on this shopping day I found
smaller saucers that matched my set! YAY!!

They were .50 each!
This was most certainly my best thrift shopping day ever!
When I got home and looked up the Fiesta napkin rings on
I found out that they were $9.99 and $11.99 each!
These are the only Fiesta pieces that I own and I just LOVE them and can't wait to use them.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a very blessed day!

Singing For Rain--Chocolate Brown & Turquoise Tablescape

See my sweet little bird in the center of my table?
 He is singing for rain!

He's perched inside of a bucket.....

I found this lovely bucket at Goodwill for 2.50!
 I just love all the colors and the garden theme.

My plates were a Goodwill find for $1 each!
After I purchased them I came across the same plates at
 Big Lots. The watering cans are from the Dollar Tree.

My vintage glasses were also a Goodwill find in
TN for $1 each.
I bought all 8 of them.


My napkins were found at the local Peddlers Mall.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Friendship Tea Vignette

This pretty little tea picture was a Goodwill find for $4.00!
(sorry for the glare)

This pretty young lady with her basket of flowers was a gift to me from my
 sweet sister in law.
Thank You Crystal!! She looks "Plum Perfect" with my tea setting today!

This tea pot is from the Goodwill and was $4.75.
 My favorite part about this find is that she sings! Yes, I have found a musical teapot!!
(I should have taken pictures of the bottom of her to show you)

This embroidered tea towel is one of my favorites.
It is a Thrift Store find that was only $1.49!

My Mothers church hosted a Mothers Day Banquet this year and their theme was Tea!
I was so happy to be able to attend with my Mother and my Sister.
All of the ladies in attendance went home with a tea set and I came home with this pretty little tea cup and saucer.

We also received the Friendship Tea along with the recipe wrapped up in these lovely cream lace sachets.

I would be delighted to have you stop by and enjoy some friendship tea with me!
I will soon be sharing some of the recipes and pages from this big ole' cookbook
 in an upcoming post. You won't want to miss it!!

Thank You for stopping by, Tea is always better when shared with a friend!
