Thrifty Thursday # 49, plus a Tablescape

Hi! It's Thrifty Thursday! I am your host, Leigh. Thank you so much for stopping by and additional thanks to those who also participate in Thrifty Thursday! I am most delighted to have you join in..for it's YOU who makes it a "show and tell party". 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.

Sister Sledge, a "12 year old tween", was wanting something more colorful for her room. This set fit the bill with it's island nod and colors of bright pink, green and yellows (It looks more yellow in the pictures than in person, it is actually more of a greenish color).


















Her bed  was something I purchased years ago at an antique store for $75.00. The white antique coverlet was a garage sale buy that cost $5.00. I am still trying to decide what to put over her bed, but right now that straw piece and the letter "E" were both thrift store finds, each cost less than $1.00.
Here is a better look at the bedding. I kept the  (reversable)duvet at the end of her bed. The Duvet has pretty buttons and trim that match the pillows.


















































Wait! Do you see that blue thing behind the pillows? Hmmm,  Mental note: need to make sure to take up Ninetindo DS prior to bedtime.....

Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.












It's American Idol time, folks. You must know that it's fmaily time in front of the tv for those under my roof. I haven't started blogging about it. I will when they finally get to "Hollywood". But on Tuesday and Wednesday nights (when we aren't at wrestling...which is rare) we are taking in the auditions. We set up our TV trays and we plan at home judges, casting votes and "casting off " who we think should leave. Below is our tv tray set up for our chinese takeout...












What is a tablescape without the food? I invite you to stop by my food blog, PLATES & PLACES, tomorrow for Foodie Friday! It won't be chinese takeout...it'll be HOME COOKING on the menu!

Thanks to all of you for stopping by and participating in today's Thrifty Thursday. Please use Mr. Linky below to link up your blog.I encourage you all to spread the love and visit the other thrifty Thursday participants, for that's what half the fun is. Aside from seeing a cool treasure it's making friends!

Thank you, all, FRIENDS! I appreciate YOU!

You really hit on a bargain with the bedding set. I love it and it's great that your daughter does too (mine usually don't like the things I do!).

Can't wait to see what you have on the menu for tomorrow! :-)

linda said...

What gorgeous bedding Leigh...I would have snapped that up in a minute too!

You are wondering what to put over the bed, what about one of those popular vinyl lettering designs that we're seeing so much of these days. Maybe her full name or just her initials. You can get them in any color too.
