Simple and Pretty

My dining room table was looking unloved yesterday:

So I decided to dress it up with some thrift store vases and wild flowers. I found these three lovelies at the local Salvation Army: I liked the fact that they were all different styles and heights. It makes them eclectic instead of ordinary. I also liked the fact that they were 59 cents each with an extra 50% off!

I made my hubby cut the flowers for me because they were just too tall for me to reach. A little water and voila! A much cheerier dining room table:
I had some extra flowers, so I tossed them in a Mason jar that I bought on the same shopping trip. It was all of 89 cents before the 50% off!I just love fresh flowers! Don't you?

I'm linking up to Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures party over at Southern Hospitality. Pop over for a visit and see what treasures other shoppers found!

Love those little vases and the flowers are beautiful! What a great spruce up!

you know what? those vases at our Salvation Army would by about $1.50 each, if not more. I don't know how they stay open. Their prices are so high.
I love that you got such a bargain though!
