Thanks for stopping by!!

I have found so much inspiration that I have started sharing my own addiction of tablescaping. Please feel free to join me as I enter my journey and share my passion for decorating with all my lovely little "treasures".

I decorate my home with vintage, thrift store, yard sale and hand me down items. I shop ebay with a vengance for dinnerware and glassware, the postal service must adore me!

I am very casual, but a bit fussy when it comes down to details. I have spent two thirds of my life in the south, but the southerners say my "nothern side" still comes out! I am guessing this is not such a good thing....and visa versa when I am around my northern relatives, "give me a break"!

Join me any way.......I hope we can be blogging buddies no matter where we all live :)

My Pink Zebra Mugs

You gotta love these cool mugs right?  What's not to love?  They are pink and black and to top it off, they are zebra print!  Well I had to make a tablescape, duh!
Black antique dinner plates that are not marked.  A steal off of ebay for $12 for a set of 8 YAY! (they have soft ivory centers.)  Rose Fiesta-like stoneware salad plates and black bowls from Big Lots.
I was tricked into buying "vintage" black polka dot glasses off of ebay and later found out they were from Target, rrrrgh! Some of the most unique flatware I have seen in sometime, another ebay score for 6 place settings for $ 15.....I about peed when I won the auction!  I believe it was free shipping too!
Aren't the mugs delicious?
My hubby does not think so!

Yep, salt and pepper...ebay! Right out of the art deco period.

Pink Saturday
Link up to the blog party over at
How Sweet The Sound!!


  1. Those mugs are awesome!!! Where did you find them? I don't drink coffee but they'd make great hot chocolate mugs for me and my little girl!!!
    Love the tablescape!

    (Oh yeah I'd definitely make the fluffiest pink tablescape well attempt to, if you win!)

  2. WOW!!! Love this table setting ... the punch of pink is brilliant .. the those mugs ... awesome!! Happy Monday..xo HHL

  3. Oh, I love all that pink & black and the Zebra mugs!! How fun!!

  4. Wow! I love your tablescape! The zebra cups are sooo cute - and I want one of those zebras, don't you? Thanks for visiting. Your comment made me laugh! You're a sweetie!
    Hugs to you,

  5. No zebras were harmed in the making of this tablescape ;) ~giggle~

    I bought the mugs at an outlet a week or so ago. I could only spot three (dang) I am so happy I didn't find more!!! They said dishwasher safe, but after a run through the dishwasher all the paint started to peel of the handles!! The handles are supposed to be all black, but in the pic you can see where the paint is coming off in huge chunks!
    I think I will try to take them back even though I do not have the reciept!
    Do you think they will take them?


  6. Happy Pink Saturday and it's so nice to meet you! Your tablescape is gorgeous! Have you joined any of the table scaping parties out here in blogland? There are several that I have seen. Everyone would love your pink and black table. have to be very careful on ebay about buying vintage. Not so nice people will put vintage in the title just to draw you in. They should be spanked for that!

  7. Yes Lynn I have joined a few parties and have loved them! Keeps me hopping~~~ I am grateful for my teenager who likes to help me with this hobby or we would have to find time to bond over something else!
    Agree~tricksters should be spanked on ebay!!


  8. I don't usually like animal prints-but these are FAB -of course-the pink is awesome~!~~
