Yellow, Green and French??

What do yellow, green and French have in common?  They are all thrifty things I am sharing today!
I found these bright yellow placemats and matching napkins at Value Village for less then $2
I'm always looking for things to add to my tablescaping stash!

This green glass leaf dish will be cute on a table and only 25 cents!

Mugs like this are sold at the restaurant La Madeleine  and cost about $12...I found this one for $1 in a Goodwill....

Sara's wisdom teeth extraction has been moved to next Friday.  So I will get another visit in next week!  I'll be going home tomorrow.  

I'm joining Diann for
Thrifty Things Friday!

Toujours,

Linda

I'm so envious of your La Madeline mug find. I've been searching for more of these, looking at every GW and thrift. So far no luck. Sadly La Madeline no longer produces these. I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy more when I had the opportunity. A friend designed and made these for La Madeline, but she stopped making ceramics when she moved to CO. Enjoy your mug........Sarah

It seems you've found quite a collectible item in that mug! You've got a good eye for bargains.

I swear you have the best luck thrifting...we need to go together and do this...maybe a blogger's thrift shopping day along with lunch????

Wonderful bargain hunting finds Linda. My favorite has to be the green leaf dish.

Very nice finds, Linda. Love the yellow placemats and napkins the best. There was a Value Village in Arizona, but none that I know of in the east. Susan

Deb said...

Good finds, Linda and love the coffee mug...love it. My son had his wisdom teeth out 3 years ago and said it wasn't that bad at all. She'll do fine.

Hugs,

Pretty! I love the yellow placemats and napkins. I also really like your pretty leaf plate. It looks like recycled glass too. What a great find!

gail said...

Hi Linda....love your header.
Well, one of these days I might just find you on my doorstep....would love that!
I'm sorry to hear things are a little rough right now, but I guess we have to take the bad with the good sometimes! Things do get better eventually....

Since yellow is my color of the year, I particularly like the yellow treasures for the table.

I saw some like that at BB&B this weekend put just looked and didn't buy.

I hope you do a tablescape with those great yellow placemats, Linda!

Neat finds, Linda. And you posted about them on the day before July 14, Bastille Day in France! On July 14 I posted some pics I took last year at Le Mont St. Michelle. If you have time, hope you will stop by!

Diann said...

Great placemats and other finds Linda! Are you keeping cool down there? We had a nice little break for a few days and today is supposed to be the hottest day so far. UGH! thank you for joining TTF and I hope you are having a wonderful day.
