Almost makes me want to drink some tea. I am diehard for coffee.
I like that you don't just go out and buy it all at any price.
You wait until the price is right and you find the pieces you want.
BTW it is Wednesday today isn't it?

Your table is very inviting. I love thrifting. Some of my favorite things are treasures from yard sales. I love Micheals too. We dont have one here but maybe.....one day.

You say cheap; I say beautiful and the dishes are so pretty. What a great buy for your finds.

Pretty pink table setting -- and thrifty too!! :-)

I'm always amazed by the cool stuff people find at thrift stores and flea markets and garage sales.

Isn't that $29,000 coin chair crazy?!

My front door is painted and almost ready for its big reveal... :-)

So pretty! This just shows that you don't need tons of money to have beautiful things!

I love those sandwich plates and cups! I've been looking for some at the thrift store but I've only found two plates with no cups.

My Mom had a set of similar cups and plates for fancy cakes and often donuts. Thrift store hunting really pays off and you seem to be having so much fun with your TS today.

Kammy your table is gorgeous! I am so jealous about your ironstone creamer set- I never find stuff like that at our thrift stores. Your photos with the roses are magazine worthy for sure- great job!

Okay first you are thrifty not cheap lol. Your table is beautiful! I wanted to buy that set of dishes from the Antique Mall and they were $100.00 for a 4 piece setting so I had to pass. I was $75.00 short of their asking price LOL
Have a blessed evening!!

You get things on the cheap. But you are GOOD at putting things together. (And painting, and fixing. Need I go on?) This is very pretty and elegant, Kammy.
