Before $1 thrift find
Sunday, March 22, 2015
So. My newest obsession is all things galvanized. I can't control myself. I actually have purchased more since taking this picture!! The lanterns are from Ross clearance $8 each. Can't pass that up! And the others are all Target online (also a new obsession) tray $14. Caddy $19 2 tier caddy $30. Dangerous I tell you!
I have always wanted an old coke crate and got one on Friday for $17! Not too bad right!? (Bottles not included)
Today I went to the thrift store, I love treasure hunting! And I got this lovely mismatched set for $4! I couldn't resist. Aren't they so Anthropologie!? There are 5 tea cups, 2 saucers and 3 bowls. Wouldn't the plates be cute on the wall!? Yes please!
My very best friend from high school that now lives out of town is having her first baby! And it's a girl!! Yippee! I threw her a shower a few weeks ago and wanted to share some pictures. It turned out really cute!
Red belle cake and homemade cream cheese icing!
Veggies and dip, chocolate covered strawberries, cheese and cake. And of course paper straws sweet tea, pink lemonade in milk glasses (old frap bottles)
I printed out the babies name and the invite and put them in frames I already had. Cheap and easy!
Loved this, I found the crate at Ross for $7! Perfect! The burlap runner I got from hobby lobby as well as the burlap banner. So cute and simple. Plus I can add ribbon for any "theme" that can be easily changed.

Every year our church has a ladies Christmas tea. Somehow, this was the 1st year I have ever hosted a table. I wanted to do something rustic/pretty/classic. So I went with burlap, mason jars, evergreen, cranberries, log rounds, a lantern and deer antlers.
Close up of the place setting, I used little chalkboards as the place cards. And tied the silverware and napkins with twine, a cinnamon stick and evergreen. Perfect!
I love the way it all came together and I like the way my Christmas dishes sort of dressed it up a bit.
If you know me at all, you know that I absolutely LOVE christmas and all that it entails! I can't wait to show you my Christmas house... Welcome! Have some egg nog and let's watch Elf!!
Loving using real greenery this year!
More real greenery with my christmas dishes in my hutch
Mason jars and greenery on my kitchen window sill.
More real greenery with my Christmas cards on them.
The dining room tree
Ha. My real life picture of my twins. I wanted to show my red throw and blanket with my reindeer pillow.
YES! Love this. I cut the tree down in the woods!!
And..... Drum roll please.... The tree.....
First time for us to have a real tree this year and I am IN LOVE with with it!!
More chalkboard art
One more chalkboard!

I found this cute little set (5 small plates and creamer)
I also got these $2 for the box, I figured I would use them in a hurricane or lantern to decorate for Christmas!!!
On another note, I was in a store the other day and saw this.
I love fresh greenery, especially for Christmas and especially magnolia. How simple (and basically FREE) is this swag?
Speaking of "fresh". I had a man cut me some log rounds to use as chargers in my dining room this year.
We are getting a real tree this year and doing a lot more of a rustic/ natural feel. I can't wait!!!
