Hmmm Savers?

So thursday i ventured to a store called SAVERS its like good will i guess? It was my first visit and i wanna say it was a great experience? But it wasnt that great BUT i did get some good bargins! So as you all know we got a new table its marble... I know more work for myself BUT its so PRETTY! :) Ive decided we need place mats and coasters so i thought id have a look and see what i could find right? Whether or not it was a real place mat or not i figured if i found a nice curtain or a nice table cloth i could cut it up and make me some unique placemats! But the curtains they had were awful and the table cloths were COVERED in stains..and i had no plans in dyin the material and then cuttin them up! So i moved on and found me a good deal on green apple coloured cloth napkins! Ive been wanting to switch to cloth but just have been to lazy... but they had 9 of these nice napkins and i couldnt pass them up! Not at 60 cents a piece! And then i found a nice well i guess it was a place mat of some sorts but there was only one of then and i was looking for something to place in the middle of the table to place the bread, salt n pepper and what not in the centre of the table with out scratchin up the marble! It was only 90 cents!

So while i was out today i popped into walmart to see what was in their clearance section and i came across this really cute baseket! It was on clearance because one small piece on the bottom was snapped a lil and heck ive been looking for a bread basket! And this would do a perfect job of that! Its the same colour as our chairs and the green napkins look great with the basket!

So i hope uve all had a great wk :) And sorry i havent blogged every single day :) I hate not having my camera! Anyway im sitting here waiting for a loaf of bread to bake and all the boys are off up stairs im down stairs listening to music and enjoying a cup of peppermint tea MMM I hope everyone has a good wkend!
