My vignette coast me $1.50 as I only purchased the three Vintage bunny banks at $0.50 a piece. I scoured the house for items that I already had and came up with a few varieties but this first one is my favorite.Here is proof on my price … I remember these fuzzy bunny banks from when I was young.
I’ve recently enjoyed viewing the $5.00 Goodwill Challenge Spring Decorating 2017 that was started by Hillary from My So Called Home. Here is the playlist to all the YouTubers that took her challenge- check them out, you might get inspired. The playlist from Hillary – My so called home http://bit.ly/2miYBsi
Well that $5.00 US is equal to about $6.69 CDN dollars 😦 and lets face it thrift finds are more plentiful and cheaper in the USA. However, having said that – I am definitely up for the challenge and I’ll be keeping my budget under $10.00 – let’s say at a healthy $8.00
I am putting out the challenge on this blog, my Facebook page and my instagram page hashtag #EasterDecoratingChallenge.
How to decorate without breaking the bank (using thrift store finds, of course). Sometimes you can make the most elegant and easy Christmas centerpiece with things you already have and thrift store or auction items.
I was using this white milk glass footed dish (I paid $4.99 at a thrift store)to hold keys and trinkets by my back door, but with Christmas fast approaching I decided to use it in a different way.
I already had battery operated lights and vintage multi-color ornaments. I tossed them all together and wrapped some artificial garland around the bottom. This could be used on a dinner table, a coffee table, end table or a mantle. You are only limited by your imagination.
If you are out thrifting and you spot something similar, you might think twice before passing it up.
Day 6 – DIY Table Decoration – It’s A Wandaful Thing!
I have been blogging under the name “A Wandaful Thing” for slightly over a year now and it’s been a lot of fun.
The following posts are my top 15 favorites for 2015. These posts (and those responsible for them) inspired me, helped me, challenged me and impressed me.
Without further adieu…I hope you enjoy them as much I as did.
Farmhouse Master Bedroom redo from Prodigal Pieces – so many vintage pieces – LOVE IT!!
2. DIY Bathroom Vanity by Shanty 2 Chic – this post comes complete with downloadable building plans. I simply adore this idea as my “only” bathroom is about this size and it has been hard to find a small vanity that will fit. I hope I am able to try this project in 2016.
3. This inspiration board from is from my friend Amelia at You Can Always Start Now. I am envious of how full her board is but also inspired to make one of my own.
4. Old rusty bucket turned into a flower-pot from Petticoat Junktion – this woman makes so many cool things from vintage and flea market finds – you just have to check her out.
5. Under 30 minutes, easy, gorgeous Spring Wreath from the Bold Abode.
6. DIY coasters and tutorial from Gretchen at Boxy Colonial – she has them entitled coasters for Christmas but you could make them for any occasion – adorable.
7. I have been a BIG fan of Donna at Funk Junk Interiors for a few years now and she has a been an inspiration for some of my own projects. She actually gets two spots on my list this year. This toilet tissue holder made from a crate and an old license plate and (see #8) 🙂
8. Apple Farm Sign with rustic twine also from Funky Junk Interiors – I purchased the stencils and have this on my 2016 project list.
I hope you enjoy this festive and beautiful compilation of Christmas tablescapes to help you find some inspiration and ideas for your own table this year. To link to the blogs for each tablescape, hover over the image.
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.
Her tablescape(s) are truly amazing and oh so beautiful.
I am so jealous envious of all the fabulous “stuff” she has collected/thrifted over the years. Candy was even so kind as to list prices for each item used.
