I flipped my "LID" this week...


Today I am linking up with Sue over at its "Very Cherry World"! Please visit Sue and all the other participants for "REDNESDAY"!

I thought I'd share a few of my SA finds from last week. After seeing all the awesome things many of you, my blogging friends where bringing home from Goodwill, Salvation Army and thrift stores, I went on a hunt. Wow, I really had so much fun and was able to find some really nice things at such great prices! Okay, I'm hooked; I would have never believed you could really find such pretty things in these stores. I have donated many of my items over the years and now that I understand the thrill of the hunt, I'm sure my things gave joy to someone else. A little lesson for me on giving and receiving was learned by shopping!

I'm so happy with the bargains I found, I wonder if "Home Goods" put out a missing person's report on me. Surely someone must have noticed that I have been missing in Action!

Don't fret "Home Goods"; I'll be back for a visit soon, sshhh, don't tell them I'm cheating on them.

The table is set for an quick; early morning coffee, come sit and have some banana bread or a coconut cupcake or two!

Temp-tations Oven-to-Table Set; found at "Salvation Army"...

The wicker serving holder for the Temptations Ovenware...

Isn't she sooo pretty... all "Cherry" and bright...

Notice the pink cupcake, I had to sneak it daughter's birthday was yesterday so I had done a little baking!

So pretty and in perfect condition; not bad for $3.99!

Like my top...isn't it snazzy? Pretty, hot, huh?

See the pretty "RED" candle holders, I found them at "Salvation Army" as well for just .99 cents...

I just love the "RED" translucent glass candle holders, they add just the right height to my little kitchen table...

Like my "RED" cupcake liners, I saw them at Jo-Ann Fabric and had to have them for "REDNESDAY"!

Yummy Coconut Cupcakes...

This one is covered in fresh coconut, my honey's favorite...

Love the Square "RED" and yellow Rooster plates from Home Goods. The "RED" dish and coffee mugs are from JC Penney...

Blew out the "RED" candles but left the "Birthday" cupcake lit for a few more minutes...

Snuggled in together, so happy...

The "RED" Ranunculus Floral Arrangement is from TJ MAXX, a few years ago, love my "faux"!

Thanks, Sue, for hosting "REDNESDAY" such a fun day!

I hope your day is filled with "SUNSHINE", thank you for visiting; I really appreciate each of your "SWEET" comments.

So please tell me "What kinda red loving girl or you"?

  4. Hi Kim,
    That dish is awesome. I could so use something like that. I feel like thrifting today:-)

    But what I could really use even more is one of your coconut cupcakes. YUM!!! Do you have a good recipe? these are my favorite but I've never actually made them myself so I need to find one.
    Love your RED!!!

  5. That's a beautiful tab;e setting. Aren't you glad you went thrifting? It's definetly habit forming.

  6. Hi Kim! Oh, what a beautiful setting you've put together. That covered casserole is gorgeous and the holder! You really got a bargain here! The candle holders are lovely too, well, everything is.
    Thank you so much for the visit, your kind comments and for becoming a follower! I'm so thrilled!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

    Looks delish!!

    Lou Cinda :)

  8. What a nice fine--yup, it is cheeeeery!

  9. Hey Girl!
    Welcome to the world of "thrifting!" I used to be a non-believer myself until I started going and finding wonderful things. I even got my Sister to going thrifting. She's a Macy's, Home Goods kinda girl! She's now hooked!

    Your table setting is lovely. I would really enjoy sitting down to such a pretty setting and digging into one of those yummy cupcakes!

    Lovely post.


  10. Love EVERYTHING about this setting but especially those rooster plates, they make me laugh! Lovely tablescape and cupcakes, too.

  11. HELLO,

  12. Now that you have been, seen, and conquered the out!! It and others of its kind will call your name ALL THE TIME!!
    Your covered casserole and candleholders are fantastic. Looks like a nice party was had by all. :)
    The Tattered Tassel

  13. Well, that is pretty! You never know what you'll find at those stores!

  14. Kim, be very careful...thrift shopping is so addictive! Love that covered casserole you found.
    The Orange Rooster is one of my favorite dish patterns...I did a tablescape not long after I started blogging, back last fall! Every once in awhile I find a piece that I don't have, but think TJMaxx is finally run out of them...will be scouting the thrift stores now.

  15. I especially like the red candle holders :) Happy REDnesday~
