The picture of roses is one a friend bought at an antique shop and later gave to me. The lamp is vintage and belonged to my MIL. The pink rimmed bowl and bowl holding roses were finds at an estate sale, and the green bottle was found at Good Will. I have about five dollars in the entire arrangement. Remember to use books in your vignettes, as decorative items, and to elevate other items.
I bought the white pedestal from Kmart years ago for $5.00, and the teapot and roses came from Good Will for a couple dollars.
This chair is a consignment find for $10 if I remember correctly and it's a perfect match for the drop front desk.
This bedding is from Good Will, the sheets, quilt and dust ruffle all for around $13.00. The sheets were still in the original package, and they work perfectly with the quilt.
This gravy boat is from an estate sale for about a dollar.
This 'table cloth' is a ladies scarf, $1 at Good Will. Always look through the scarves, they have all shapes and sizes, some of which make great table cloths and runners. I love the colors in this one.
This arrangement is a Good Will find. I just put a fresh coat of white paint on it, pulled out the ugly flowers and added the pink and white ones from my stash.
I hope these examples inspire you to shop at thrift, consignment stores, estate and garage sales, and your Good Will store. I've found such lovely treasures, and this way, by not spending so much, I can always change things when I get tired of them.
I'll share at these link parties. Be sure to check them out for lots of inspiration.
