Welcome and an Easy Table Vignette

Hello! Welcome to my blog! My name is Kara and have been blessed with a wonderful husband and a house full of boys.
I have always loved to rearrange the furniture, create vignettes, and decorate. I am by no means a professional...I just like to play around with my decor and have fun! I love to shop at thrift stores and also try to re-purpose things that I find so that they can have a new life. I hope that you will join me on my adventures decorating, thrifting and re-purposing! Maybe we'll even try a few recipes too! Also, for those of you who are interested, be sure to check out my other blog on autism and disabilities. You can find it on my side bar or click here.

On to the fun stuff!

Here is a little vignette on my coffee table that I threw together:

Would you like a cup of tea?

I found this cute little copper lantern at Goodwill for $2

The tea set was purchased at a variety type store called The Emporium. It has 4 cups with it and was only $5 for the whole set! I love the glazing they used on much texture!

This heavy wooden tray was also a Goodwill find for about $3

For texture I first placed a bamboo floor mat on the table then layered it with this lovely homemade scarf that my sister crocheted for me. I thought it looked so soft and fluffy, I couldn't resist using it in my vignette!

I hope you've enjoyed your visit! Stop by anytime! :)
