That's right...once again it is time for Thrifty Thursday and Tablescape Thursday. My, my where does the time go, seems like just yesterday I was looking at everyone's thrifty finds and gorgeous tablesettings. Please join Leigh at Tales From Bloggeritaville and Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for what promises to be another great week of posts.
The above sweater is just gorgeous in person. The beaded detail work is intact perfectly. The tag on the inside says: Jo Ro Imports, Miami, Florida. Made in Hong Kong. 100% wool. Hand trimmed. I purchased this sweater at a local thrift store for $8.00. I love it!
This sweater is just as gorgeous as it's green closet mate. All beading is intact. The tag on this lovely says: Fully Fashioned Kaws. 100% cashmere. I purchased this one at the base thrift store for $3.00. Now, I didn't take a picture of it but I realized that I have a beaded purse that is an exact match of the beads on this sweater that I picked up on a weekend shopping trip to Bejing a few years back.(No, I didn't take a long ole' flight from the U.S. to China for the weekend, we were stationed in Seoul, Korea which was only an hours flight away.) This sweater has a shorter length than the green one but looks so good with a brown dress that I purchased recently at Stein Mart.
I hope ya'll enjoyed my thrifty finds...Now stayed tuned for a tablescape. :)
Today we are having lunch on the front porch. I'm sorry that the outside looks so cloudy. This is due in part to me having a crappy camera and the fact that the next canyon over was on fire ALL day and smoke was so heavy outside! Enjoy the pictures.
So here is the lowdown on this tablesetting:
Black iridescent chargers: base thrift store 8 for $3.00. I think that they are carnival glass.
Black and White dinner plate and bowl: $1.00 each at Family Dollar. I think that they are still in stock.
Chartreuse and Shamrock salad plates: Fiestaware.
Flatware: can't remember, something cheap from base exchange.
Green and clear pitcher and glasses: recent purchase from Nogales, Mexico. $12.00 pitcher, $3.00 each glass. I love them!!
Now on to the birthday!!!! As some of you know, my Chui, was a wayward soul, lost and down and out on his luck in Seoul, Korea when we found him. Hubby and I were golfing(one and only time that I have participated in THAT sport) and we found him on the golf course. I took him home, had him checked out by Stan our great family friendly vet. He guessed his age to be about 6 months. So today we celebrate Sir Chu-sok's birthday. He is 4 years old. Below I have posted a picture of the day we found him on the golf course(yes, he came with the collar and leash), and few more while still in Korea. Last, is a picture of him taken a few days ago after his most recent beauty shop appointment. For those of you who might be worried that we didn't try to look for his owner, we did. According to the folks at the golf club he had been on the course by a pond for two days. I left my name and number. We lived in Seoul another 8 months before we moved. No one ever came forward to claim him. Happy Birthday to our little man!!
