Y'all 'licious pickins were had recently at a Salvation Army thrift store-- like these napkin rings that were $.79 each:
Nothing gets my heart racing faster than digging for treasure in a giant bin at a thrift store!!! WHAT? Here's what I snagged:
Yasssss! And look how this four-set of brass bevel cut babies cleaned up?:
As if the $3.16 + tax set of napkin ring REALNESS price tag didn't STYLESLAP y'all six ways to Sunday, I then had to go & pair 'em w/those gorg linen napkins and shoot it all atop that chic Walls Republic wallpaper to just seal the whole damn value deal! Btw, LURV using wallpaper (& other decorative papers), fabric remnants, etc., as a decorative element-- like an unexpected runner-- on a dining table. I start w/the wallpaper (or whatever preferred decorative paper, fabric) then pull my overall color & pattern tablescape direction for plates, flatware, linens, glassware, etc., right out of the wallpaper! Foolproof table setting! But wait- there's more!:
Uh huh-- another four-set of brass beauties that cost all of $3.16 + tax:
I mean: you guyzzz?!?! Same idea as above, but totally different color & pattern story I'm putting down...and it's just as much EVERYTHING! Another fab Walls Republic wallpaper called Grey Tinted available here ... This Bargello needlepoint pillow was lookin' cute, so she got scooped up:
Y'all I'm not opposed to snagging a chic textile from a thrift store, including throw pillows. Ideally, she would've been just a pillow cover, which I could promptly remove for thorough cleaning, but this gal was sewn shut. No worries: using my seam ripper, I carefully separated the seams, threw out the insert & black corduroy backing and carefully handwashed the needlepoint:
Did y'all know you can reuse/repurpose needlepoint if it's in good condition? For instance, I could have this fab needlepoint framed w/a large 3"-4" white mat inside a simple white frame as poppy modern art, or make it into another throw pillow w/a bold yellow backing...I'm not sure what this will become yet, but just lurvin' how graphic & colorful it is...and all these 'licious scores cost under $15, TOTAL!!! Thrift Score SUCCESS-- now I wanna know what thrift scores have STYLESLAPPED y'all?
