Placemats and napkins

Hey all! I am back from Vegas it was awesome but sooo hot! I had a lot of fun though :) I wanted to share the cutest stuff! At Marshalls they had the coolest placemats and napkins ever! They are toile! Oh my gosh! I went to every Marshalls I know and got as many things as I could. One of the sets of napkins isn’t toile but very pretty!  I only took close ups of the red because it’s the same design on all of them.

Some Goodwill

Sorry about being MIA a lot. I have been a crazy 21 year old on her summer break and Taylor and I have been having some problems so I have been occupied. Aaand tomorrow I leave for Las Vegas for 3 days! Viva Las Vegas LOL. So I wanted to share something with you before I was gone even longer! Some things I got at Goodwill a while ago.

These candle sticks are like glass, not quite mercury glass. They are neat! There is a seam around the bottom where the two pieces were glued together and glue is icky so I am going to glue ribbon or something around the bottoms. Maybe add some shells. What do you guys think?

See the ugly seams? Next is a little fondue pot I got to share for a romantic dinner with Taylor and I…and a little plate that kind of matched.

Fancy Hat

My grandma went to some fancy hat event on the Queen Mary and had this hat made. She didn’t want it anymore and was just storing it and thought I might want it and of course I’d take it…I’m sentimental like that LOL. It’s quite darling! Inside there was also a Mardi Gras mask and a top hat that my grandpa wore to this party LOL.

A sweet surprise was opening it up and finding a hankie that my great grandmother had crocheted (or whatever it’s called) the rim in  the colors of the Italian flag!

After my grandma saw my post about the Disneyland hats she remembered hers and thought I might want it LOL. I don’t know what to do with it yet. I am keeping it in the hatbox for now. I hope you’re all having a nice week! All the best!

When a candle is inside it looks sooo cool because the glass in shaped funny and it makes pretty designs on the table. The only problem is the little metal roof gets REALLY hot from the candle! I don’t know why I liked it so much. I even waited a long time before getting it LOL. Anyway! Congrats to our winner again and I wish everyone all the best!

Silver tea set and last day for giveaway!

At a garage sale a while back I got this brand new silver plated tea set for $45 dollars. I think that’s a good price… Anyone know? Either way I love it! I have always wanted one! This one came with a teapot, coffeepot, sugar, creamer, and tray. From the same lady I also got two shabby chic decorating books. Victoria’s At Home With White, and Rachel Ashwell’s Shabby Chic. They have been a lot of fun to read! I highly recommend!
