I also participate in Tablescape Thursday the host of that fun carnival is the Hostess with the Mostess...Susan of Between Naps on the Backporch. That's no lie or exaggeration, each week I visit Susan's porch and just long to be a guest at any of her tablescapes...especially those held on the porch.

Now onto Thrifty Thursday....
I made a trip to the thrift store on Monday night. I have found that in my area, for me the best time to go is early in the morning (when it opens at 8AM) or late at night (I go around 7 or 8, it closes at 9:30 PM). And the best time to visit is mid week, when things are not picked over from the weekend. Weekends are brutal at and on the thrift. My mom would say "You can't stir them with a stick"...and so you will not find Leigh there. I do not like big crowds.
...Anyway, back to my thrifty find. I was shopping around and came across this cute sea biscuit bowl with lid.
I just thought is was so pretty.
It is made my Franciscan, a company which I am unfamiliar with.
Maybe I can use it in a future tablescape. And for 99 cents, a bargain!
Another little something I found that I can use in a tablescape are these three little bowls.
Made by Gibson, they were 79 cents each. I love how the sides are "wavy" and dotted.
I only wish that I had found them before I had made my tablescape photo for this week.
Which brings me to......
For the Tablescape Thursday today, I am using my actual Let There be White (Host, Kathleen.) for my Tablescape Thursday that is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch..
"Do you follow me?" (wink to my "girls") I decided to do a double post on this one.
To see my white tablescape, please click here.
I did, however promise to share the tablescape from the birthday get together. It was a poolside, Soiree (don't you love to say, soiree...sounds so dignified and cultured. Not that the Clematis club is all that. I woul define as f-u-n)) and the buffet table and cake reflected the poolside fun.
I wish I had taken the photo when all of the food was sitting out. We had quite a feast!
Thanks ladies for the pool festivities. Love y'all!
I want to make mention on something exciting. Flea Market Style. Its a new blog, and a new magazine! And until Sunday , to promote things, they are hosting a giveaway on their blog. All you have to do is leave a comment to enter. A lucky winner will win a great vintage wire shopping cart with a handmade liner (made from a recycled coffee sack trimmed with vintage fabric, four grommets with cotton cord to tie to the cart) to fill with glorious bounty.Perfect to haul all your thrifty Thursday purchases. Sweet! Be on the lookout for the new magazine too. I cannot wait!
I invite you to visit my food & recipe blog, Plates and Places for Foodie Friday's and on Tuesday's for Southern Staples. I finally posted my mother's Potato Au Gratin Recipe (Thanks Jenny Moon, for the reminder. Smile;) and my families Five Generation Cornbread Recipe on there as well. You'll love me because they are both sooo good. You'll hate me because they are soooo good. UmmHmm.
I invite you to come back tomorrow, where we are counting chickens. Sort of. I am linking up to The Rooster party at Barbs Good Life. I don't have to many roosters, but I will show ya what I've got...and even something to sell.
No, it will not make for Sunday supper.
