A couple weeks ago my hubby excitedly walked through the door and told me about a new thrift store just 10 minutes from our house. Yes, hubby likes scouring the thrift stores just as much as I do and he was anxious for me to see it. It’s a huge store and I found a special treasure which became my inspiration for creating a spring dining room in blue in white.
This blue and white damask style fabric caught my eye where all the textiles were hanging.
I pulled the tablecloth out and was happy to see how big it was … and no holes or stains!
I love the little fruit and vine pattern and the feel of this fabric is like a soft tea towel. It’s printed on both sides which makes me think it’s damask, but I’m not sure of it’s age.
For just $3, I had to bring it home with me.
I’ve always loved a classic blue and white color scheme.
Blue and white looks so fresh and gives my farmhouse dining room a cottage vibe.
Even though there’s snow on the ground outside, it feels springtime fresh inside with the sun streaming in through all the windows.
We could have warmer breezes in just a month and a half. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
My blue and white mismatched dishes go perfectly with my $3 thrift store tablecloth.
It might be cold outside, but inside I can enjoy my spring dining room in blue and white.

Coastal style is comfortable and carefree with a nod to colors of the beach. It originated on the Atlantic coast in homes with expansive windows to let in seaside breezes. Coastal interiors can withstand sand from the beach and salt from the air. With nautical influences, it can be romantic, rustic, classic or modern. You’ll…
Do you watch Chip and Joanna Gaines on Fixer Upper? If you answered yes, then you’re well aware of what shiplap is. If you answered no, you still might know what it is. I love watching Fixer Upper on HGTV and wish Joanna would come decorate my house. She uses shiplap freely in houses that…
It’s Farmhouse Friday!! I love Farmhouse Friday which occurs the 4th Friday of each month and includes 5 other bloggers with farmhouse style. This month’s theme is the Farmhouse Kitchen and I’m super excited about it because Polder’s Old World Market is offering $350 worth of their beautiful hand-carved wooden chef utensils to one lucky…
Who doesn’t love a charming breakfast nook? It’s a cozy and inviting place to start your day off on the right foot. Even if you get up on the wrong side of the bed, enjoying a creamy cup of coffee in a sunny nook is sure to brighten your day. Today I’ve got a collection…
Spring officially arrived a few weeks ago, and now I think it’s safe to say it’s here to stay. Daffodils and crocus are in bloom, the days are longer, and the soft breezes a bit warmer. It’s the perfect time of year to tour the fresh and light home of Amy at The Blissful Bee….
