Live in a luxurious home on a budget

Today I went to my local Goodwill and found some amazing pieces that have been on my list for quite a while. I tend to have an expensive eye for things and today I got really lucky with my finds.

                                      Williams-Sonoma Jardin Potager Bowls


 


I got these 4 bowls for 5 bucks. They are from William Sonoma and are made in Italy. Bowls were one of the things missing on my kitchen cabinet. I needed them for salads, pasta, table arrangements and sides for big dinners. These are perfect and I can't believe I got 4 for 5 dollars at Goodwill. These ran for about $120 each but are now discontinued.

Farmers Market Pfaltzgraff designed by Pat Farrell 






Who doesn't need a  butter holder and a sugar bowl? You especially need one when they are this cute. I didn't even know of this brand until I got home and looked it up (I always do this :) ). I thought the design was beautiful and very farm house like.  These run for about $32 each and I bought them for 2.99 each!  They discontinued this brand but you can still find them on eBay and Etsy.

CB2 blue line dinnerware

(This is how it really looks with the perfect lighting)

These plates are so beautiful! It has a marble and ombre effect and my phone camera did no justice to them. They are perfect for summer gatherings. I paid 7 bucks for 11 pieces. I can't find the price because they have been discontinued but I am sure it was in the hundreds. I am obsessed with the color blue for the spring and summer. The color brings relaxation and lightness to the air at home. 

                                                  Crate and Barrel Shelby throw





I forgot to take a picture of this one but I paid 3 dollars. This throw has amazing reviews and it's super comfortable, and soft to the touch. A throw was on my list and I just hadn't found one with the right texture or colors I wanted. It is brand new and I am so thankful for finding it.This is perfect and it's still available online. Sorry its $ 59.95, but it is worth it! 



I wanted to finish this blog post just by saying that I am very thankful for finding all the things I had been looking for. Some days I walk into a thrift store and walk right out because there is nothing but junk. Don't be discouraged and keep on searching for your dream style. If you don't find it that day, you will find it in a different day. You can create a beautiful home on a very small budget. I don't just buy name brand things but I do look for high quality and the brand just comes with a perk if I want to resell these things one day on either eBay, etsy, Craigslist, or offer up. 

I hope you guys have a great rest of the day. Blessings to all <3
