Decorating on a Budget

December 27th, 2016 at 10:51 pm

As the holidays were approaching, I was amazed at the decorating some folks were doing. Of course the merchants aren't helping much with all the advertising and how important it is to have your home holiday perfect.

I set the table for supper the other night and decided to get a few things out. Everything on the table other than the flatware was bought used. Some of it I have had for a few years. The green tablecloth was purchased last summer. It was still in the package, but bought at a flea market for $5. I say you don't have to spend a fortunate to have nice things.

A furniture company has a commercial running that the couple didn't realize their home had no style until they took down the Christmas decorations and how you should buy all new stuff to liven up the place. Yep, I bet that will fix everything, right? Maybe that mentality is what has got so many in trouble financially.

    There is definitely that mentality to update, update, update. Your table and the room look really lovely though!

    I have the same sideboard that we just took the doors off and are painting barn red! Going to repurpose as a television stand!

    Well, as you know, I have those plates! What is your silverware pattern? I'm looking for a new one. I'm interested in Wallace's Napoleon Bee, but it's hard to find, and expensive.
