Spring Breakfast Table....


I am so excited!
I was out yesterday running errands and picking up Freckles from her friends house and decided to look real fast through a passing Thrift store. There it was right in front a me....A sweet little vintage table and two chairs. Surely, it would too much for my pocket book. I only had $25.00 from my birthday gifted from my dear MIL. I got out and took a wee look...and asked the guy how much. He said...Well, how about $85.00 and I'll give you half off! Hmmm....Nope still too much for me. I got the gull up to ask if he'd take $20.00...He thought for a minute and said... How about $25.00!!! I said, or shall I say I screeched YES!!! I'll take it!!!

So, I came home with a cute table and two chairs for the amount I was willing to spend... I cleaned it up with Ajax...It was dirty!!! Then I decorated it this morn for a sweet Springy breakfast!

I got out all my cute reds, yellows and white vintage stuff and went at it!
Check out this funny lil Chick with a polka dot scarf...I got her at the Dollar Tree.
 
As a center piece I placed some of my fun soda pop bottles
 on a ceramic dish and put some flowers in them.
I used my red chargers from my Sister which she got from Target. Yellow plates originally from Ross priced at $3.99 each...I got them at a Garage sale for one buck each! And, they were still new with price stickers. Red and white plates I bought a couple years back from The Dollar Tree. Red napkins gifted to me for Christmas from my SIL & Brother, and the sweet whimsical dishes I got from my Sil & Brother as a birthday gift this month! So sweet!!! I love how all the colors and patterns go with each other. I also used my polka dot glasses from Target!

I am already planning to re-cover the chair seats in reds...
Probably will be quilted patchwork or something. I can see it now!
 
So, then I made a french toast with eggs and bacon breakfast and a glass of milk!
We enjoyed the morning sitting around my new table. I just love a bargain!!!

  21. I am embarrassed no to have been to visit in such a long time....I have been a neglectful friend...and I twill have your coffee cozy to send you. Those two Photoshop courses I took almost did me in, and all of my focus has been on my other Climbing blog instead of my Buttons one. I could not believe it when I just pulled up your precious new design. I LOVE IT. It is sweet and whimsical...just the way I think of your and your Freckles. Another homeschooling year is coming to an end. I know you all have accomplished much. Freckles is souse very fortunate to have such a loving and caring mom. Be good, and I am going to work on posting to my Buttons more ofter. Hugs and love, Genie
