A Thrifted Vignette

My ever changing buffet is dressed up  for Spring in mostly thrift store treasures. I love changing this for the seasons. Its even more fun when done on the cheap. I've collected a lot of white tureens at thrift stores so I decided why not add them to the vignette along with my Goodwill frame. It was a terrible gold before I painted it white. My Husband cut a piece of leftover wood sub flooring for me and I painted it with chalkboard paint and popped it in the frame.


The silver cuff with the glass  also came from a thrift store.  I bought the glass candle holder from the dollar store and added it to the cuff. The  mercury glass candle stick was bought at Marshalls as was the lantern. The seashells are also from my stash. I had a little fun with the picture in pic monkey.


  I bought St. Therese at Goodwill  and the twigs came from  my yard. The little nest has been in my stash for years, I think I bought it at Michaels.



 All three of these tureens were thrift store purchases. I have a real weakness for white  turreens. Only one piece is ironstone but as much as I love ironstone if its white and has a pretty shape its for me, ironstone or not.




 Happy Mothers Day everyone. I hope you all have a great day. I'll be linking up with these great parties;

  2. Love your tureens, Karen! I went to Goodwill this week actually looking for a couple that I saw there previously and, of course, they were gone. They usually have a few so I'm hoping next time. I'm thinking of putting them on my kitchen cabinet tops since my whites cabinet is full.

  14. Thanks for the visit, and follow!:)

    I am sooo a Thrift Store Addict...love the places, enjoy digging with some of them, and I especially enjoy being able to treasure items that were once loved. Use them as they are, or give them a lil bit more love with a repurpose job of their own. Hmmm...makes my day!:)

    Whoops! Better stop before I get carried away...LOL:) Love what you do here, and what you share. Thanks again, and have a wonderful day!:)
