Thrift Thursday: A Thrifty Gift Idea for Mother’s Day or Teacher Appreciation Week

I love Thrift Thursday because it is a glimpse into my own personal conviction….that sustenance and beauty can be just that, thrifty.

Last weekend, my sweet friend treated a couple of us girls to a lovely wine tour at Alta Colina with the winemaker.  She even rented a fabulous limo and stocked it with crazy delicious cuisine from New Frontiers.  I was in Heaven!!


Obviously, I wanted to let her know how much I appreciated the gesture in more than words.  So, thinking of the recipient (my sweet Denise), I knew that it had to be both beautiful and a bit of the ocean.  So, I grabbed some of the beautiful pieces that I have found here on the Central Coast, and coupled it with an air plant.  So simple, and so beautiful!

If you don’t have the luck of living in this beautiful place, you had better plan a trip soon!  We would love to share this gorgeousness!
