My sisters are throwing a baby shower for me this weekend, and since I have a problem sitting idly by, I’ve been hitting up thrift stores recently (on my good days) to try and find ways to make the food table a little more fun and decorative.
Wouldn’t you know it, I found almost nothing for food tables. But I did find a few other things I had to bring home…
I found this little doll bed for $3 at Goodwill, and you all know it isn’t going to remain like this for very long! I actually have a few items to paint as soon as energy and/or non-pregnancy allows. I have a few doll quilts to choose from already for the bed, but I’m thinking bedding is in order- mattress, sheets, and pillow.
The fabric is a yard and some of knit that made me think of baseball, so I grabbed it. $1!! This was a DI (Deseret Industries) find, and DI is about 30 minutes from my place. I happened to be in the area, and couldn’t resist a stop. We need more DI’s in Arizona…
And this ceramic teapot. Isn’t it cute? One of the colors for the baby shower is orange, so I really couldn’t pass this up. I’ll find a spot for it at the shower! This one didn’t have a price tag, so when I took it to the register and the manager was taking a while to get over to price it, the cashier asked, “How’s a dollar sound?” And I couldn’t say yes faster. Can I just again request more DI’s around here??? WAY cheaper than Goodwill. And it doesn’t stink.
Ok, what would you do with an orange teapot a few days before Halloween?
Me too :)
