Thrifty Things Friday #39


Hi everyone!

This is the last TTF party for 2011. Can you believe it! As I posted yesterday, today, feel free to repost a past favorite thrifty find or idea or a brand new thrifty post.

I am posting one of my favorite thrifty tablescape. This wasn’t a post for TTF or my Thrifty Tablescape party. It was originally posted last April. At that point I was so tired of cold and gloomy days and one day the sun was shining so, I grabbed these pretty pink and yellow dishes and did my tablescape.

You can find the original post with lots more pictures here!

pinkandyellowtable018_thumbI had wanted pink chargers for this table setting  so, I took cheap thrifted chargers and spray painted them pink to match.

pinkandyellowtable044_thumbI also painted some clearanced plain napkin rings pink and added pretty little flowers on them. And I made the pretty pale pink overlay napkin.

pinkandyellowtable021_thumbI bought the 23 piece yellow Harkerware set of dishes at the flea market (some are plain yellow and others have white daisies on them) for a grand total of $1.00!

pinkandyellowtable037_thumbI also made the three tiered serving dish from thrifted china.

pinkandyellowtable024_thumbThe entire table was made up of thrift finds.

pinkandyellowtable033_thumbIt was the first sign of Spring the day I set this table so, the pretty softer colors just made me smile! 

I am not showing any featured posts from last week’s party because I haven’t visited everyone yet (as of when I am writing this post).  

I hope all of you are enjoying the last days of 2011 and reflecting back on the happy and positive things that happened this past year!

  17. Oh, I wish I had ONE favorte to post.
    Because what I treasure in your blog, your ideas, your sharings is the encouragement of using what you already love and how to fell in love with THE piece and not the decor in a whole.

    You're my FAVORITE TT.

    God Bless. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and here's wishing your a Wonderful and Delightsome New Year!

    Cheers,
    Teresa

  22. Que o Senhor esteja a sua frente para indicar-te o caminho certo. O Senhor esteja ao seu lado para abrigar-te em Seus braços e para proteger-te.O Senhor esteja abaixo de ti para acolher-te quando caíres e para livrar-te do laço.O Senhor esteja em ti para consolar-te quando estiveres triste. O Senhor esteja ao teu redor para defender-te quando outros te atacarem. O Senhor esteja acima de ti para te abençoar. Assim te abençoe o benigno Deus em 2012.
    receba o meu abraço mais carinhoso e toda minha amizade
