I found this red printed tablecloth from their linen closet. It was too short for the table so I laid it diagonally. My daughter said it would not work because it is printed and I have printed placemats. I told her to believe me, that I know it will work. So, you be the judge, what do you think?
I looked at it, put it down, then walked around the aisles, went back to it again and put it down and shopped some more. Before we left, I went back to it again and decided to buy it cause I really like it and for $10, I think it is a good buy.
I bought this bird finial too at the same time. I wish there were 2 but this was the last one. I want to put it on the Fleur de Lis fountain on our porch. Our porch, BTW, was voted #2 of 7 " Porches We Love From Rate My Space" You can read about it at http://www.hgtv.com/landscaping/porches-we-love-from-rate-my-space/pictures/index.html . You have to click next to go to picture #2, which is our back porch with the fountain. I don't go to Rate My Space anymore and it was one of the bloggers actually who told me about it. I like fleur de lis for 2 reasons. It is my elementary and HS school insignia and it is one of Louisiana's icons. LA is only across the bridge from us.
I bought the copper napkin rings from Ross before I left Tampa last week. They were $3.99 for a set of 4 and I got 2 sets.
Don't you just love those raised flowers?
I found these S & P shakers in my daughter and SIL's home office on display. I wondered what the round things on their mouths are and Tina told me they're magnets and they are supposed to be kissing.
Ok, much better!
This is my Thrifty Thursday contribution. It is a Vettriano wannabe, lol. When my daughter and son in law bought their house, she fell in love with Vettriano's "Singing Butler" and she wanted to buy the framed print to put on their wall. But it was too expensive for her. She asked if I can paint it. I told her to print it for me and one weekend, I came over here, brought an easel, brushes and oil paints and did it in one day.
