I love the "Beachy" look! I would love, love, love, to have a house... or even a condo!... at the beach! Of course, I would love for it to be right ON the beach! But, I would settle for one that was merely near the beach, as well! **Smile**
I would have SO MUCH FUN decorating it!
I knew that for my June tablescape, I wanted to do a BEACH THEMED one.
Here is what I came up with! -- Once again... please excuse my photography skills!
Don't you love this turquoise beaded bowl thingy to the left?? I am not quite sure where I got it. I have had it for a while. I know that I did not pay a lot for it. Maybe $3.00? I am extremely attracted to all glassware in this color!
I bought the little tealight candles at the dollar store back in February when I was searching for valentine things. I bought two sets of 3 for $1.00 each!
Do you see the seashell salt & pepper shakers?? Those are part of David's grandmother's collection that I have stored up in my attic! I have boxes and boxes of salt & pepper shakers! I guess you would say that these were "vintage".
These light blue placemats are the same ones that I used for my "winter theme" back in January. I picked them up at Bed, Bath & Beyond for $1.00 each on the clearance shelf!
The white plates are the same ones that I bought last fall at the dollar store! I use them all the time!
I found these blue-striped napkins on a recent "thrifting" outing that I had last Saturday. They were only $1.00 for a set of 6!
The white knobby bowls are the same ones that I bought back in February. I think I paid $2.00 each for 6 of them at Michael's.
I found these beautiful blue bowls while out "thrifting" on Saturday. I LOVE the colors! There are only 4, but they were only $1.00 each!
I was excited to find these fun mini-chargers while out "thrifting"! I had to have them for my "beach theme"! They were only $4.00 for a set of 6!
I picked up this cute little fishy at Hobby Lobby. He was only $4.00, but I paid less because he was 40% off!
I found this pink flamingo at Hobby Lobby, too! He was only $6.00 with 40% off!
Don't you love these candlesticks??!! I found these at the thrift store for only $3.00 each!! I just HAD to have them!! I bought the candles at Hobby Lobby. They were $6.00 each, but were on sale for 60% off!
These cute little fishies are another set of salt & pepper shakers from David's grandmother's collection! They are so precious! They make me smile every time I look at them! I would say that these were "vintage", as well.
The aqua colored votive candle in the foreground is another dollar store find!
This display is on my hutch, which is right next to my table.
The little green fishies on the left are more salt & pepper shakers! Too cute!
The shells in the big vase are just part of the collection of shells that the girls and I found while we were at St. Joseph's Peninsula State Park in Florida last September! I have been waiting to use them as part of my "beachy" decor!
I found this adorable flip-flop dish while out "thrifting"! I love the colors! It was only $3.00.
Hope you like my "thrifty" finds!
