Decorating on a shoe string budget can be just as pretty as ordering hi-end decor from the pages of Pottery Barn……just takes a little bit of creativity.

To freshen up the entryway table ~ I remembered the pretty Milk Glass pieces collected from my pickin’ friends ‘Sister Stash’ for the Shop ~ I gathered a few pieces from the collection, and played with the different shapes and sizes….this was first. The something ‘old.

It only started to create interest by adding the warm texture of the cutting boards underneath….layered to add height, so the eye has somewhere to move….this was ‘borrowed’ from my kitchen.

New linen napkins were purchased from our local Dollar Store…on a dime…this was something ‘new‘.

Upcycled denim roses were purchased from Etsy….shop M & K Designs, attaching them to extra floral stems with hot glue. Even making my own using tutorials on YouTube…..and there you have something ‘Blue’!

The remaining flowers are just extras from this and that… the reflection of the Milk Glass in the image above!

So as you can see……you can have pretty vignettes made on a shoe string budget!


My friend Tracy of ‘Sister Stash’, found this little toy while pickin’, I am so smitten. It sits along-side the Milk Glass vignette.


You too can enjoy a collection of Milk Glass and Flowers thru our ‘Cottage Classics’ Shop within 895 Studio (here in PA)~ coming this Summer, along with the linen blue plaid table cover shown above.

Below is a little sneak peek at the ‘Cottage Classics’ Shop, as it sits today….just waiting for shoppers! Calling it ‘In Bloom’…..and so pretty!

If you are local and see something you like, we are offering curb-side pick up! You can see items up close and personal with pricing by visiting my FaceBook timeline. Contact me thru messenger :).

A little old, a little new, something borrowed and something Blue!

…..on a shoestring budget!
