Spring Table & More!

Ahhhh... Spring.....


This is my table with a little spring decorating. Its a mix match of things I've had and couple of new items. It all started with these...



I was out thrift store shopping and came across them. The placemats were .75 each and the napkins were .49 a piece. They are a neutral color of green and I thought they could be used often. So for a total of $5.00 a got them. Then I was at Ross and spotted this....




It's the tablecloth, actually its vinyl, but I loved the print. Sorry the picture is blurry, but you can see it was only $4.99. Good deal and just right for a spring table setting!




Then, the plate shown above, I bought at the Dollar Tree several years ago. Love the colors!  I, also, bought this one....


The picture came out fuzzy, but you still get a pretty good idea of what it looks like.


Aren't they cute? These bird statues were a gift from my mother~in~law.  I was with her and she knew how much I loved birds, especially Blue birds. She bought them on clearance for $4.00 each at Ross. Great find, Mom!



This is a shot of the morning sun shining on one my rooster pitchers from Sicily. I did a post previously about them...check it out for the history and to see my collection. Oh, the tulips were a birthday present. Love the color of them! See the pie safe in the background?....I hope to give it a paint treatment soon. So many of you bloggers have such great inspiration pieces. :)




O.K.,  I couldn't help myself, but it was so fitting.  This is one of little birds I bought at the Dollar Tree. They have several varieties to choose from..who can resist?



Ah, this has been my favorite recent purchase! Would you like a cup of pink lemonade? I love this pitcher and the wine glasses. I bought it at Wal~Mart. The pitcher was $6.00 (not bad since a small carafe was $3.oo). The wine glasses were $2.oo a piece. I bought a set of six of them. They are really plastic! Can you believe it? So, for $16.00 I got the whole set.  I love the new print from the Better Homes and Gardens collection that Wal~Mart is selling, from the bedding to housewares.



Here's another view of my Spring table. I am joining Linda at her blog Coastal Charm for her Nifty Thrifty Tuesday party. What fun, take a look at other thrifty finds! I am, also, joining up with Marty at her blog A Stroll Thu Life for her Tabletop Tuesday party. At this party you will see lots of beautiful table settings full of ideas! Thank you to both of these ladies for having these parties!.....Michelle

How pretty! It would be a pleasure to sit at your table. The pink lemonade pitcher is SO nice an unusual, I never see anything like that in the UK at all.

I love your table. Now you are so clever. You can't tell the tablecloth is vinyl and the decanter and glasses really don't look plastic. How great to have something that you can use outside and look so stylish. Your dishes, the hurricanes and the pitcher with the tulips are all just perfect. The birds are so pretty. Such a lovely gift. Thanks so much for joining the party and showing us such a stunning table. Hugs, Marty

Your tablescape is lovely but it is made all the more so in your first picture by the sun streaming in the window right onto your table! That makes it really look Spring-y! Great thrifty finds! I really like your lemonade dispenser and glasses too.
