Totally "Thrifted" Table

It may not be my prettiest tablescape, but other than the
silverware, it is comprised of thrift, consignment, and estate sale finds.

The yellow plates (45 cents) are marked Spaulding, Chicago.
 They are a "Melmac" type product. 

The yellow and pinkish dishes were a great find.  A stack of 20
 mixed maker plates for $3.00, can't beat that! 

The clear glass pieces are nothing special, but together
they give the table some needed sparkle.

The splurges were the amber depression bowl and candlestick pair.
Still a great bargain for $10.00!

Love these little liqueur glasses, and I just have
a thing for pitchers. 

Mr. Virginia Retro found the water lily design vintage tablecloth
at a thrift shop...without me, imagine that!  

A friend gave me the sweet yellow Czech pitcher.
She's an estate sale maven.

  1. Whoa! Fab finds! Love how the tablecloth pulls it all together! Props to the Mr for that lil gem!

  2. What lovely soft colors! That table makes me believe that spring is right around the corner.

  3. WOW! What a masterpiece for hardly any cash! Great finds!

    I really really realllllly love your pink salad plates. I think that is a heckuva bargain!

    I am SO GLAD you came by to see me so i could find you, too!

    Isn't thrifting fun? My DH thinks perhaps I should stay out of the 2nd hand stores, but it is nearly impossible to pass up certain barginas!

    Well done, ma'am!

  4. Great finds. Love the tablecloth.

  5. Wow - you have some AMAZING Textiles! Love the photo of them billowing in the wind. :)

  8. I think its a very lovely table setting. I love your header.

  9. No matter where you find the dishes or decorations, your table looks very nice. If you saw mine, it would probably have the pots and pans on it. Nothing fancy for me.

  10. These colors all go together so nicely. I really like the feeling that this table gives off. It is pretty and comfortable at the same time. Thanks for the great pictures!
