Hello friends, and welcome to the Thrifty Style Team post of the month! I’m so happy you’re here and if you think you’re at the wrong place, you’re not…please stay! This little site used to be Cupcakes and Crinoline but after 9 1/2 years, it was time to change some things around so now, Cupcakes and Crinoline is The How-To Home! Sit back, grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and stay awhile.  Also, you’ll want to check out all of the other amazing Thrifty Style Team creativity at the bottom of this post!

So, now on to business

It’s that time of year when most people have just about had it with winter.  Too many gray skies and wet days, right? I may be jumping the gun a little bit but a few weeks ago I decided to pretend it was spring (in my mind anyway!).

I was at Target and found a set (2) of pretty kitchen towels and colorful cups in the Dollar Spot (is that what they call it???) and those were the springboard for my inspiration.  ($12.00 total)

My next stop was Aldi because well, my family eats pretty much constantly so Costco, Sam’s Club, and Aldi are my hangouts.  Anyone else??? Anywho….I was at the register at Aldi and grabbed a bouquet of pink roses ($3.99 – no guilt!) and headed home.

I pulled a three-legged hobnail vase off the dining room shelves (the vase was 99 cents at my local Goodwill) and added the roses to it (I’m up to a whole $16.98 at this point – woot to the big spender in me). p.s. Is it just me or does the name of the vase sound like a Lord of the Rings character? 

Next, I layered one of the Target towels across my small white cake pedestal and topped it with the hobnail vase and roses.

I placed the other towel in a vintage silver Victorian hand clamp and spring-ed up my letterboard and placed it above my sink and that was it.

I do love how it all came together! I was so inspired that I pulled out one of my very favorite coffee cups and saucers to celebrate.

The sun was shining (YAY) when I snapped this picture…..ahhhhh spring is on its way.
