(One of) the cheapest corner(s) of my house.

So...while taking pictures of my Christmas decorations, I stopped at this little tableau. I love this little nook of my living room, because it was dirt cheap. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you'll know that the green lamp and shade were a curb find (still with the $204 price tag on the bottom...holler!). But the new glass-top side table and globe are recent additions to the living room.

Anyone who says they can't afford to redecorate their house is a liar. The side table was $6 at a local Goodwill, and the store has a deal where all furniture is an additional 20% off if you're able to take it with you at the time of purchase. So, since I could maneuver this little baby into the back seat of my car right then, I paid a whopping $4.80 before tax. The globe was from another local Goodwill store, and was $5. I think it makes quite the handsome set-up. It would be perfect if I didn't notice how crooked those pictures are!

The candle was a gift. I have loved this brand and scent since I got it as a Christmas present a few years ago, and will keep burning these candles every Christmas season as long as I make them. The candle is Frasier Fir by Thymes, and I can't recommend it enough. It smells like winter and Christmas.Thymes, if you want to send me free candles, feel free!

Anyone else have any cheap finds they're particularly fond of?
