It all began with 50 cents....

I was walking through Home Goods the other day and I spied some black and white. This was wrapped in a baggie with "tablecloth" written by hand on a scrap of paper and a $.50 red sale price sticker. I snatched it up and held it for dear life, not caring what size it was.
When I got it home and opened it up, I started laughing because it is a Cynthia Rowley Shower Curtain!! But for just today, it will be a tablecloth:
This setting displays my handpainted chargers, and red heart votive dishes from the Christmas Tree Shop (after Christmas sale for $.50 ea). The heart dishes were purchased about 25 years ago from TJMaxx and the dinner plates are from the Dollar Tree.
And some Pepper and Poppies:
This butter dish was also handpainted:
A little wine chilling:
Another hand painted piece of glassware in a M-C colander:

Happy Valentines Day!
