Mid-week thrifty goodies!

I wanted to show a few pictures of my dining room table decorated with mostly thrifted goodies! I change it out every few weeks, so I wanted to show this look before it changes!

I took this while standing on one of the dining room chairs!

The centerpiece is made up of all thrifted goodies!

Here are the bamboo palcemets with the rooster napkins. I bought the napkin rings, years ago, at Elder-Beerman.

I didn't think that I would have a chance this coming weekend to do any thrifty shopping or go to any garage sales, so I stopped in at the Salvation Army on Wednesday. SCORE! They had half off all "bric a brac". Otherwise known as housewares or knick-knacks!! I love to shop the knick-knack aisles at the SA. Everything is so cheap and they have aisles full of stuff!! I also like the "domestics" section. Also known as napkins, tablecloths, placemats, doilies, etc!!

This colander is small. Just 8" across. It was 50 cents!


I have looked at this juice decanter for weeks. It isn't in the best condition, but I decided that for 50 cents, I decided to bring it home! Not quite sure where I'll put it.


I am going to use this in my scraproom. It is the perfect color of sage green. 35 cents.


I really like this old coffee pot. I am going to plant some red geraniums in it. We have an antique wood stove on the deck, I think it will go on that. Only-$1.00.


Isn't this cute? Love it. I have another one like it, but the design on the front is a pineapple. I'm thinking of putting one on each end of my buffet or hutch. This little beauty was only 49 cents.


This is a bag of sno-cone straws. They have a little spoon on one end. My grandkids love sno-cones. I have had a crank ice shaver for years. Last week I bought a new electric ice shaver at Meijer on clearance for only $14.50! We probably have at least 10-12 bottles of flavoring for these icy treats!


I love these large (18" x 18") napkins! The colors are perfect for a summer table. All four for $1.00.


This fabric is actually a good sized square tablecloth. It is cream, red, navy, sagey green and tan. I love the colors. It was-45 cents.


I am going to hang this somewhere outside. Either on my deck or in the big tree where most of our birdfeeders are-50 cents.


I just love this little jam jar with the raspberries on the lid. I will probably pit it on top of my kitchen cabinets or in my scrap room-25 cents.


I'm going to hand this outside by my kitchen door-25 cents.


Wooden Christmas garland, once again-25 cents!
