Coastal Thrift Finds


I love turquoise, it’s my favorite color and also my birthstone. So of course I had to get these little glass dessert bowls I found at a yard sale.

These scallop bowls are part of an incomplete set of dishes from Goodwill. They came with scallop and starfish plates. I like to split them up into different table settings. My cute little pelican salt and pepper shakers came from Goodwill too.

The Pottery Barn Napkins were a thrift store score and the starfish table runner was made by me.

My dried hydrangea’s from last Fall. I’m hoping to remember to get more this year! These make great bouquets during the winter when back yard flowers are scarce.

  4. Your table is so pretty , simple and wonderful.
    I first fell in love with turquoise back in the 60's as a teenager, I seen my first kitchen appliances in turquoise and so wished i had a house with a turquoise kitchen, and the turquoise cars were to die for , back in the day LOL


  5. Morning, Mary! I have such a special place in my heart for turquoise. Growing up, our kitchen had white painted tin ceilings, turqoise wainscotting and 1940's wallpaper with black, white and turq coffee pots, teapots and teacups on it. My mom had all kinds of turq accessories and lots of the turq and white Pyrex bowls and containers too. It was such a bright and cheery place in the morning. (sigh) Your lovely table and sideboard scapes brought me back to that kitchen this morning, so thank you so much for sharing them and for hosting another great Masterpiece Monday! Have an amazing week! ~Mary


  6. Turquoise a such a great color, if you noticed, I featured it on my last tablescape. It's always reminds me of the ocean too! I grew up in Anaheim and spent many days at Huntington Beach.
