One Thrifty Mom...One Gorgeous Tablescape

Pin It

 was able to meet Jill@Forever Cottage at this year's Junk Bonanza. Jill was asked to participate in the Thrifty Mom Challenge. She did a fabulous job!! I think she even got on tv! Superstar!! (Does anyone else picture SNL character Mary Katherine Gallagher every time you hear that word? Laughing!! Okay, focus!) Here is how Jill described what the challenge is all about.
"Ki Nassauer, founder of the Junk Bonanza, challenged me (yes, little ol' me) to shop one of the sponsors for this years' Junk Bonanza, Arc's Value Village (a local thrift store) for a stylish table setting for eight. I was given a budget of $100. The table will be set and displayed in the Arc's Value Village booth at the Junk Bonanza. Attendees will be able to put their name in a drawing to win all the items on the table! Ki, along with Arc's Value Village, wants to show Bonanza attendees that even on a budget you can find stylish vintage wares for your home." (Read more on Jill's blog.)
Here are my shots of Jill's challenge results...

Stunning, no? My favorite things were the table runners made from burlap and vintage fabric. I also adore the floral centerpieces! Didn't she do a great job?! For more photos and details on the Thrifty Mom Challenge, visit Jill@Forever Cottage!

What's up next? Eye candy for junkers! Photo after glorious photo!! Is your mouth watering yet?


  1. Your photos capture this so beautifully. I actually saw the Twin Cities Live show that they were on. Pretty cool! She did an awesome job on this. Thanks for doing the photos so I could see it "up close".
