Thrifty Thursday #62

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.

*Don't forget to copy and paste the Thrifty Thursday logo button to your computer so you can add it to your side bar and your Thrifty Thursday post. That way visitors will know that your are participating in Thrifty Thursday.











I found a great container at the Thrift Store sometime back for $2.88.























It already had the styrofoam secured inside.


















I looked around the house. I love natural elements and found some sticks and feathers to put inside. I think this is more of a winter piece, but wanted to share...


My $2.88 centerpiece.

Hi Leigh!

That's a great find! You can change that up so many ways. I'm linking my Goodwill finds post this week.

Thanks for hosting!

Thanks so much for hosting and for inspiring us to thrift! I consider thrifting to be recycling, too. Happy Earth Day!

Looks good! I need to get out some of my unused containers and redo them. I am trying to repurpose more things around my house instead of adding on.
Thanks for hosting again this week and hope you are enjoying your trip to the beach.

I agree it's probably a winter piece, but shoot, that's a great piece for under three bucks!

Christina said...

Love this arrangement Leigh. The feathers and branches are great together. Isn't it fun to put things like that together. Love the little trunk it is sitting on also.

Loved the list of songs in the last post. So many great ones.
