A MAGNIFICENT HOLIDAY TABLE ON ANY BUDGET! MY COST 8.00 !
Welcome ! Have you been enjoying your favorite thrift finds? I know some prefer ordering from catalogues which is fine as well but perhaps once you see my table today you will be inspired to thumb through your local thrift stores because you never know what you will find. Ok so I am addicted to scanning the stores that means all stores but with in my means. This last trip was at our local goodwill store and they where hosting a 1/2 off sale which they do about 10 times a year. So take a look at what I was able to put together from thrift store and a Michaels craft Black Friday deal.
Well come on in! We just love guests, This is how I can account for my 7.00.....as you can see my little cocoa thinks that food will be served here directly, sorry cocoa too early for that now.
The greenery in the middle was a 2.00 doorbuster on Black Friday. The sign was one I crafted previously the cute little fluted tins set of 12 were .99, pinecone free, the bulbs were some vintage ones left to me from my dear mom.
The dishes were 7.00 but since it was 1/2 it was 3.50 for the set of six, love the imprint of the pine cones and pine . They have a vintage feel to them. I just placed some strings of green and red paper raffia about for fun.
The tablecloth is made by the Ecro Co. for France according to the label and was 1.50, I think it may be my favorite find!
For some whimsy I put the glasses unside down and crowned them with a candle /tin. I had the tea lights napkins and golden ware. As you can see I have opted for a white tree this year which I will share in my Christmas Country Tour.
As you can see with a wee bit of imagination and a small pocketbook you can create a wonderful seasonal table...so tell me now have I inspired you to shop for treasures?
Welcome everyone! It's finally Christmas here at Sweet Tea N' Salty Air, a time for rejoice, and happiness to share with family and friends! Traditions are also kept such as here every Christmas morning I make homemade cinnamon buns a sweet doe recipe from my late gram. Well what are you waiting for come on in!
Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
