A Little Sad Now That I'm Back...

Hosted by the lovely Leigh and Susan

Yes... I'm a little sad... That my busy schedule also led to some loss of dear followers. But I assure you, I haven't lost my touch even in the midst of a chaotic unpacking into a new, and finally a house, home.

You know I'm all about THRIFT with STYLE. So of course, our 4th of July table wouldn't be any less than that! Brain would not let me! :-)


Whatever I had available from the few boxes I was able to unpack

And since all that I used have been with used for other tablescapes, it cost me NOTHING! How's that for thrifty, Leigh?

(Psst! Psst! See those lamps there? Got them from Lowe's for $7.50 each! Originally, $40! The plants and pots, all on clearance, too! Told you I still got it. LOL)
I used my red check tablecloth and a floral dusty blue and white flat sheet. To simulate the first USA flag, I used a glass table top surrounded by tea lights. The centerpiece floral arrangement, just of grass blades to remember the simplicity of the land at the time it was being fought for.
I used plain white salad bowls, forks and float mugs and red, white and blue starry napkins I got last year.

I used just what was available and stayed within the scheme of the theme. (Look, I'm even rhyming for this meme!)
What do you think? Did I do alright? Susan, does this qualify as a tablescape? Ok, love to all!

I'm working on another blog that focuses on being frugal, practical and inventive.

Come check it out and tell me what you think. Then tell your other blog friends. It's very new so it's still being polished, but just like this blog, I know You won't be disappointed.

If you are feeling adventurous and want more cooking ideas, then check out my friend Lynn's blog called Nonna's Kitchen Life. It's packed full of great stuff to make you a great cook!

TABLESCAPING IDEAS: (Brain thought this table was clever) If you find yourself short on materials, focus on colors. Often, the theme is recognized from the hues layered on the table.

She Who Prays...

Eats! That's the new name of my other blog dedicated to all things frugal, practical and inventive!

So today's MM, is just a click away! JUST DO IT!

Hope to see you there!

Niceties first

HELLO AND WELCOME to this blog dedicated to my obsession of tablescapes, and ONLY TABLESCAPES!
That means that whatever I post will be redirected to tablescapes or you will see tablescapes or the dishes and glassware that I used AND wish to use.
I hope you like you what you see; but you can't do that unless you take the tour- the TABLESCAPE TOUR that's on the side bar! I'd also love to take you on my adventures on finding great dinnerwares to display and use while leaving some serious change in your pocket, so stay a while and see all of my great deals!
Wanna know the reason behind the madness, too? Then make sure to read, Why this blog for my philosophy.
