Saturday I took down all the Valentine's Day reds and replaced them with St. Patrick's Day greens. Today, I am sharing my mantel at Tabletop Tuesday and Nifty Thrifty Tuesday. Stop by and see what other bloggers are doing in their homes.
First, this vignette cost me $4.80. The beer stein with the Irish toast was only $1 at Goodwill. The toast?
May you be in heaven a
half hour before the Devil
knows you're dead.
The crown was in the 80% clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby and cost $3.80. The pony tail palm was a gift from my cousin, Melanie when I visited Fort Pierce last year for St. Patty's Week. It has grown so much and I'd like to transplant it to a nice container, but I'm afraid I'll kill it. That would break my heart.This slate was also purchased at Hobby Lobby. It was less than $5. I coupled it with this wooden shamrock from Jo Ann.
Finally, this vignette features a green star I bought at Jo Ann in the clearance aisle, a simple candle, and this wonderful pitcher.
For those of you who have featured pitchers on your blog, you know how much I ooh and aah over them. I fell in love with this Alfred Meakin gem at the Scott's Antique Market in Columbus last weekend. It was marked $26, but I was able to bring it home for $20. This is my first piece of transferware. I looked the pitcher up on Replacements.com and it had a $70 price tag on it. For me, it could be worth $3.50 and I'd still love...Love..LOVE IT!
|Pulling it all together|
Be sure to stop by Thursday to see my March tablescape.
MAKE IT A GREAT DAY!
