1st Week Advent Table setting

     I found one thing that I like to do and make my time more productive, it's table setting.  I don't buy new dishes every week, lol! Just to have a colorful table setting instead they are all thrifted, thrifted means it is given by relatives, found in garage sale or rummage church sale, thrift store or bought it discounted from a store. I found it fun mixing and matching dishes then photographing after is a lot of fun! Here is my 1st Advent week tablescape.




                    Linking to MELLOW YELLOW MONDAY, BLUE MONDAY, MOSAIC MONDAY                                                        
                                                          RUBY RED TUESDAY
