a very thrifted christmas special

a very thrifted christmas (or whatever you celebrate!) - i challenged myself to shop at my local Goodwill thrift store for: gifts, decor and an outfit...and i found all of the above! i bought 20 items for about $40! watch the video above to see my thrifting adventure and how i implemented all of them in my holiday design and style... oh, and enjoy our amazing choir performance too ; )

the full spread on my dining table.

i found a complete box of in-tact gold ornaments for $1.99

a christmas tree shaped baking pan makes a cute candy dish!

little painted glass jars...

are perfect cases for Mr. Kate jewelry gifts!

my other finds include: a fun purse and rad silver and gold bangles for gifts. some decor elements: matching gold wine and martini glasses placed on vintage trays and a red skirt i used as my tree skirt for my rosemary "table tree".

this ceramic angel bell made the perfect tree topper!

my DIY fabric flower wreath above a tin pale with dried eucalyptus - last seen here - and wrapped with a silver tinsel garland. prop it on a vintage suitcase and you've got thrifted chic!

my thrifted top and skirt completes my thrifted holiday! for more outfit photos see the full OOTD: a merry thrifted outfit post
