I had such fun getting together all my white for this setting.
The Target S&P birds were invited. A small milk glass vase holds impatients, begonia and shamrock flowers.
My Target birds were the most expensive thing on this table. I visited a couple of large yard sales last weekend. The white tablecloth-25 cents; glass goblets-10 cents; milk glass vase-60 cents. White dishes were an earlier thrift store purchase. I've had the doily and napkins for ages. Flowers were picked from my yard. This was so much fun to put together. It turned out better than I expected. Thanks for visiting.

This was purchased at Ross on the clearance shelf. It was missing the post. When I was given the sales receipt, I saw that it was identified as a cupcake holder. I set it on a post I had to give it the elevation.
Inside is a candle in the ceramic container with lid. I think it is cupcakeish.
This is a cheese dome I got at a thrift shop. I place it on a glass plate I already have. I am displaying a fake bird nest.
Do apothecary jars count? A little salt for a base and a sea shell.
I have only had these for a few months, so I have not had the opportunity to change it out seasonally.
Here are some photos I found on the internet that have inspired me.

Now that there is no DHL courier service in the US, our company has dozens of express mail boxes that would normally be thrown out and end in the landfill.
Our office library uses magazine holders for various reference material. These magazine holders are normally very expensive. I used the old express mail boxes and turned them into magzine holders.
Use a knife or exacto knife to cut out the corner. Scissors do not work as well. Now you have a magazine holder for free, and saved this box from ending up in the landfill.
Two upcoming memes I am looking forward to:
