Kitchen/Dinning Room Table Low-down
So, here's the low- down on the items I have on the table. I wanted you to know that I really do love and shop for bargains all the time.
Starting from the bottom up is the white fabric used as a "table cloth". I found this huge piece at a church lawn sale last summer along with many other beautiful fabric pieces. All for only $15.00. It is thick, long, and has a nice diamond pattern on it.
This set of wooden love birds I found at Christmas Tree Shop just recently for $3.99, each. They are nice and heavy, affordable, versatile, and of course white.
Now for the fun part. I grouped these items together for the sake of picture space on the post, so here goes. From front to back, one of my very favorite things is the huge plain white platter I found at Home Goods. I had looked and looked for one, to no avail.
GoodFriend saw it on one of our shopping trips, and I snatched it. Not right out of her hands per say, (but I have been known to do so. I have really good, forgiving friends). It was $12.99, and worth every penny.
The next platter I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE,(I coveted it from GoodFriends house every time I went there), and should have gotten more than one because, if you click the picture to enlarge, & look carefully, you will see a long crack where I dropped it on the floor.
That scream you heard, a couple of weeks ago, and couldn't identify it. Me. Blue Eyed Husband glued it for me, (LOVE HIM) and I am glad it only broke in two pieces. It was $7.99
(Goodfriend thinks I'm foolish because I like to leave the little red sticker on the plates as long as I can. I think there cute. She's probably right)
The two small white plates were on clearance, where else, T.J.'s for $1.00 each. I got four. And the tall beautiful candlesticks were $2.00,each also clearance,at T.J.'s
The flowers of course were $3.00, in their pot, and I cut them out and placed them in H2o. I like that clean look better. (No surprise there, I know).
So there you have it. A beautiful table for little money. Works for me!!!
