Decorating With My Thrifty Finds!
Hi everyone! I hope you are having a fabulous Monday! I wanted to share a little vignette I put together on a side table in my living room last night. I am new to the art of creating vignettes (not that I didn't decorate before, I just didn't put as much thought into it). Those of you who follow me know I love to go thrifting! I put several thrifty finds together to create this vignette. Let me share....
Here is everything put together...:)
started with a stack of books. They are all coffee table type books. I have had all of them for years. I am a book lover! I added the tall white vase full of white, silk hydrangeas & other flowers to the top. It was a recent thrifty find....it cost a whopping $2.40! You can see it and the other treasures from that trip here. I also added the short blue vase for the color and shape. Last, I added a pretty little crystal clock. Both the blue vase and clock were thrifted over the weekend and cost $1 each. It was one of my best trips ever and you can read more about it here and see all the treasures I found! I also added a pretty crystal frame I already had with a picture of my beautiful daughter, Miranda when she graduated from Florida State University last August. The last thing you see is one of the crystal and silver vintage coasters that I thrifted about 3 years ago.
Here's a close-up of the clock.....it is so pretty!
Here are the book titles.
You can see the flowers in this one...:)
Here's Miranda tossing her cap into the air! I love the expression on her face in this picture! That was a wonderful weekend. I am so very proud of her!
You can see the pretty beads on the lamp shade here.
They are actually garnet and gold....Florida State Seminole colors!
You can see part of my gallery wall in this last photo. It is home to a few thrifty finds as well.
I have decided I LOVE decorating my home on a budget. I am always looking for items that I have seen on many of your blogs. It is so much fun treasure hunting! I hope you enjoyed my humble, little side table vignette. Thanks for visiting and do come back! I am getting excited about reaching 25 followers so I can follow through with a giveaway!
