Valentine’s Day Tablescape from Plum Creek Place

Candy (even her name is sweeeeet..)from Plum Creek Place was the first blogger to answer the call of my Frugal Valentine Tablescape Challenge, which was to create a tablescape for $20.00 or under using thrift store, dollar store or already owned items.

Ways to reuse or repurpose mason jars, glass jars and their lids:

There are many websites and loads of pins on Pinterest about how to use and reuse mason and glass jars.  I recently saw one that said “101” ways to reuse mason jars – WOW – and here I was all proud of myself because I use 4 or 5 of these tips to save money..lol

 

Mason jars can be used as drinking glasses (glue a glass candle stick to the bottom and you’ve got yourself a redneck wine glass). You can use them as storage for beans, rice, or any kind of dry good. Continue reading Frugal Living Tips Post #3

I originally posted about this Challenge on December 31, 2014 but heck we are already a week into January 2015 and I want to invite you again to take part in this Valentine’s Day Tablescape Challenge – just in case you forgot and got sidetracked with all those other blogger challenges taking part out there 🙂

 

Ever since I started packing up the Christmas Decorations to put them away (a trip to the hospital and then eye surgery slowed me down a wee bit) I’ve been chomping at the bit and hurting my brain thinking about the Valentine’s Day Tablescape Challenge.
