A peek at the display for Valentine's Day atop my china cabinet this year:
Proud to say that nearly everything in my display was purchased from a thrift store or on super-clearance from a retail store!
--The three largest mercury glass candlesticks are from 75% off post-Christmas clearance at Target, as were the four smaller votive holders.
--The other four mercury glass candlesticks were purchased at a thrift.--The silver bowl with silk roses was purchased at a thrift store, 50% off just before Christmas.
--The large silver champagne bucket was thrifted as well.
--The red tinsel tree was bought several years ago 90% off post-Christmas clearance at Target.
--The red candle holder was purchased years ago after Christmas at Target but was probably only50% off.--The antique beveled-edge mirror was thrifted a few years ago.
--The striped ribbon on the candles was after-Christmas clearance from JoAnn's, and the grosgrain and organdy ribbons were thrifted.
Not too bad! The jeweled vinyl frame on the mirror is from House of 3. They won't stick to my heavily-textured walls, but I love how they look on mirrors! I got my inspiration for the ribbon & heart ornaments on the pillar candles from Joy at Joys of Home.
Another bit of RED in my house this week:My first RED lipstick from MAC. Russian Red, to be exact, which the salesgirl told me was originally developed for Madonna back in the 1980s. I think I'll pair it with my shiny red heels for our Valentine's date. Look out, Major Hottie! Woo-woo!
Every Wednesday is REDnesday at Sue's place! Visit It's a Very Cherry World to see the rest of the players. Andie (my fellow RED-lover and my MAC lipstick idol also has great red stuff on her blog today, including a quilted carry-on that I COVET.)
