It is Tuesday and time for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday and 2nd Time Around Tuesday!

This week I am showing some of my Thrifty finds from my Texas Road Trip!  I am doing a tablescape featuring some dishes found at the Salvation Army so I am also linking up to 

Such a Spring time table
These pretty flower dishes were a set for two
 Two dinner plates, salad plates, bowls & mugs
All in these very sweet flowered pattern
I used a soft purple place mat and added the pink napkin
Blue handled silver ware & a blue depression glass berry bowl
Blue goblets for water,
Coffee is also available now or later
A couple of flowers from the garden floating in a shallow bowl
The casserole is ready in its Pyrex dish
This white bird is sitting on a cute milk glass dish
Some of my favorite colors
Everything on this table was thrifted except the flowers!

Dishes ~ Salvation Army   2 place settings $6
Place Mats & Napkins - Last Chance Thrift  (total less then $1.50)
Blue Handled silverware ~ Goodwill $4 (have 4 place settings)
Pyrex Casserole ~ Goodwill $4
Blue divided dish ~ Value Village $1
Silver tray, milk glass dish, porcelain bird & two blue goblets  ~ various thrifts  and all inexpensive
Cobalt blue depression glass ~ Ebay win (OK not a thrift but this set was such a bargain it was like buying it from a thrift)

Hope you will visit other Thrifty bloggers today...See who else had some great finds at COASTAL CHARM  where the lovely Linda is our hostess & the sweet Diane at A PICTURE IS WORTH A 1,000 WORDS.

Hope you enjoy your tour of Thrifty Tuesday!

Very pretty table, Linda. The dishes are lovely, glasses, napkins, everything. And your Etsy Shop items look FABULOUS! Ohhhhhh, that must be so exciting! Linda, is it hard to figure out how to charge? What about the postage to send out the items? It can get very expensive, can't it? I wish you the absolutely BEST! Sincerely, Susan

Hi Linda! You are soooo clever! It's beautiful. It reminds me of my mom and grandma. Hope you are having a wonderful day, Linda. Thank you so much for sharing such a great idea!

Mimi said...

Linda, I love your table...the plates are really nice...I have those same water goblets AND white bird! You always find really good deals. Did you know that Savers is the parent company of Value Village or does that pertain to the VV in Canada, only?


Hi Linda,
Love the blue tones and the spring flower dishes.
Congrat's on winning the house pillow! It's awesome!

Hey girlfriend how are you? It's looks so "springy" at your house. Believe or not, we had snow this morning. Yesterday Randy and I were sitting in the garden chairs enjoying the warm sun. AHHHHHHHHH Today I'm freezing, in between the hot flashes LOL
Happy Tuesday
