Thrifty Tuesday

A day early of course...
I am in the process of
collecting plates, bowls, and candlesticks
to make cake platters and cupcake stands.
This week I was able
to come across ed a
whole PILE of items at
my local thrift shops to get me started.

I ended up paying around $15 dollars and came home with the following...
18 various bowls
14 candle holders
36 plates.

Now let's play with them and
see what we come up with....

I also came across ed these amber lamp pieces.

I paired them with a couple

candle holders to make these...

I will be linking to the following parties...
