Hi there, my friends!! It's #23 of our Thrifty Thursday! Thanks for dropping by! I really appreciate all of you playing along in Thrifty Thursday. It is enjoyable to see what treasures all of you find. Not to mention the biggest treasure-meeting you and discovering some fabulous blogs! That's the best part!
A quick recap of Thrifty Thursday, for those who may be new to the idea....Thrifty Thursday is a show and tell of sorts. It is time for you to showcase your thrifty find. It can be an old find or a new one. It might be something that you found at a thrift store, a consignment store, flea market, garage/yard sale, dumpster diving, even antique stores. It's it was a thrifty find, then it meets the requirements. I am not picky, It can be a great pair of boots & a killer vintage dress, jewelry, home decor, even fishing lures. It is your thrifty find.
Tell me about it.Where did you find it? What is it? What do you plan to do with it or how do you plan to use it in your home? Do you want to sell it?Thrifty Thursday's are about the thrill of the hunt...and the treasure you found. So....do show and tell!
Now...onto to the Thrifty Thursday! I am pleased to share with you my good buy of the week. Be sure to grab a button and link back with your direct hyperlink.

I have often been asked where my favorite places to shop for thrifting is or where the locations are for my favorite thrifting places. I have my personal tops that I shop when I am in my area of town. These are places I often drop by weekly to see what has come in. And I think that is part of the secret, to be at the right place at the right time.
In no certain order my favorite places that I often go to: The Alabama Thrift Store in Alabaster, Alabama, Consigning Interiors Pelham, Alabama, and Treasures Thrift Store Pelham, Alabama. Locally my other hunts are estate sales and yard sales. I also love to shop out other areas of town when I have time. But those places listed always reveal a good treasure at a bargain price. This was such the occasion today when I dropped by Treasures Thrift Store and happened upon this precious little chippy mirror.
It immediately reminded me of my cousin Beckie, who has an impeccable sense of style. I could just see this in her breakfast room, that is decorated with french cottage influences. And so, I just wanted to be like Becky so I snapped it up for a steal of $12.95.
It has so much character! I just adore it. And it is really old. REALLY old. I should've taken a picture of the back so you could see but I didn't.
Oh! Did you spot my puppy Jeffery Windham in the mirror? Jeffery was another bargain. A rescue that I literally saved from a "mean man" (long story) at a country flea market. He is a shitzu, I paid a hundred bucks that I literally scraped together. Jeffery is named after Jeffery Windham after Jeffery the ghost, the very one that my favorite author, Katherine Tucker Windham wrote about in her book the 13th Ghost of Alabama. Jeffery, her resident ghost resides in her home. My Jeffery adores me more than my own family, I am quite sure. He follows me everywhere I go. When I was taking pictures, there he sat at my side and it was so cute how the mirror framed his image.
Also in the image, another thrifty bargain. For $20.00 I purchased the wooden computer chair. I found it at a garage sale.
So there you go, three thrifty bargains. One post.
I also have another carnival that I like to participate in on Thursday's.
My tablescape this week is an inspiration photo. My friend BBJ's daughter is getting married in October at a plantation home. The wedding will be outdoors. BBJ was telling me about the tablescape they are planning, outdoor buffet with paper lanterns in the trees and also small lights, using baby food jars, remove the label adding a tealight and hanging with twine onto tree branches. Something like this buffet tablescape....
I cannot wait to photograph the real thing.
I want to encourage you to visit my friend Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.
