Is there a confessional around?
No, I’m not Catholic, but……..
I knew going into this Spring Tablescape Blog Hop I would do a spring table setting using what I have….cause that’s me – Salvagesister!

HOWEVER, when you start looking around, you think…..Oh, if I could just go to the store for some strawberries. I need just a couple of sunflowers from the craft store…that’s all (lies I tell myself)!!!
In the end, I was a “good girl” and stuck to my guns.
When I wanted to buy sunflowers, I went out to my yard and got some flowers.
When I wanted to buy strawberries, I found a few bowls, I had forgotten about, to put over my thrifted napkins.
Yes, as a blogger, and someone who generally likes to entertain, I have a stash of thrifted items, but probably not as much as you might think. Also, as you get older you just have more stuff than when you are just starting out.
Tip – If you are just starting out, pick pieces that are timeless to purchase and supplement with thrifted items.
But why not just buy what you want? What’s a couple of dollars?
If I would have gone to the store, it’s true, I would have only spent a few dollars, but I would have added more items to our house to store. It would have taken time to do the errands as well.
Wait a second…I thought you didn’t have any strawberries? This is actually a display cake that I have up year around in a cabinet in my dining room. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen it before.
How many people find themselves with ~
- Too much stuff?
- Too much debt? (You can read about the Bible Verse that changed our finances here.)
- Not enough time?
- And/or a feeling of being “stuck” because they just can’t get where they want to be?
If this is you, welcome. This site was created with you in mind.
Chargers from Goodwill, plates, cow juice glasses, and silverware are our daily use items, napkins were thrifted, vegetable bowls were a gift, runner from Target Dollar Spot, the flowers are from the yard in a thrifted juice glasses.
I hope that you found a little inspiration today to fight that perfect image you see and get creative with what’s around you. You might just end up with something pretty perfect after all.
