Tablescape Thurs. - Goodwill Old World


Thanks to the wonderful Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch for hosting this wonderful Tablescape Thursday meme. This is the day we get to play with our dishes. Be sure to check out her blog and see what all everyone has created.

I've put together a tablescape with a lot of my GW finds. Love it when I can find a bargain.


I cheated a little for the centerpiece and borrowed the vignette off of my kitchen island.


The jar I found at Ross for $7.99, the pitcher was my mom's.


The faux grapes and fruit are from the GW and I placed them on a pottery planter saucer from the yard.


A look at the tablesetting. The orange bowls came from Walmart, I really like the leaf shape.


The salad plates came from GW. They say 222 on the back. I havn't seen that before, but I loved the colors.


The yellow dinner plates are also from GW.


The chargers came from Pier 1 about 15 yrs. ago, and the placemats are yellow and green strips from GW.


Yellow window pane napkins from GW. The flatware is from Horchow on sale.


Tortise coasters that match the chargers are being used for the candles I found at the Dollar Tree.


The green wine glass I've had for years, the clear goblets came from the Dollar Tree. I thought it all made an old world look with my mom's pottery pitcher, and my jar with the sunflowers. I am really enjoying the old world look for a change.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I really look forward to your visits.

  1. Beautiful table as always!! I so love that flatware! I've been looking for some vintage bakelite or something similar. Love these colors also. I also wish we had a Goodwill close. The only options here are over-priced antique shops.

  8. You are such an inspiration. Makes me want to set out my dishes and enjoy them everyday. You have such good ideas and love how you break it down picture by picture so that I can really "get" what you did. What is Horchow and how do we get in touch with them for the silverware? It is all beautiful. Thank you!!

  14. Very, very pretty Marty. You always have the prettiest accessories and dishes to make your tables shine with style! :) Love the fruit too.

    Thanks so much for your visit to my blog. I'm sorry I haven't been by in awhile. Between my very old, slow computer and the fact that my mother fell and broke her hip(I've been with her a lot) I have been sparse around blogland.

    Come see me again!

  22. What a great pitcher! I have been looking for stoneware like that, but it is really hard to find anymore-particularly in AZ. Beautiful, and I love the fall colors.

    ReplyDelete
  23. You are always setting an amazing table. It is gorgeous and fabulously frugal! I am going to branch out to your Goodwill, the one near me is always a disappointment!

  25. Marty-you've set a lovely table-as usual. It's always great to find things that others no longer need or want. Your table reminds me of late summer here in the mountains of Colorado!

  27. How wonderful you added your Mom's pitcher. Using items that once belonged to family members is one of my favorite things!

    I love that colorful plate and your flatware is so pretty. It looks like it has a nice weight and feel to it.

  56. Marty, this table is just lovely & such bargain finds you gather...Lucky Dog!

    For some reason it is making me think "Octoberfest" with the colors & the heavier Old World feel to it. A very nice thought while we hover near the 100º mark & I hear you guys are over that!! Yikes!
    Stay inside & cool,
    fondly,
