Thrifty Tablescape

This past Saturday, my daughter and I went yard salin'.  I have to say it was a bust.  Neither of us found much and it was HOT HOT HOT with lots of humidity.  It's just mid-June!

I did find an aqua Ball canning jar for a quarter, AND these awesome placements, 4 for $1.  Paired with a black tablecloth, a turquoise vase from Dollar General, flowers from Hobby Lobby for 67¢ a stem, and black plates picked up from Goodwill a couple years ago, I think it makes a very modern looking tablescape:

I forgot to take photos with the empty plates on the placements ... bad blogger!  On second thought, it's good for you to see food on the plate - you might want my recipe for Pressure Cooker Riblets. 

I'm linking this up with Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures at her blog, Southern Hospitality. Go see what other thrifters have found!

Oh my gosh!!! My husband had a set of those same plates (dinner plates, luncheon plates and cereal bowls) when we got married. I think we are down to 2 plates and a cereal bowl but they bring back great memories!

Great finds.
