Thrifty Thursday #76 + 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.

*Thrifty Thursday takes place each Thursday and is hosted here at Tales from Bloggeritaville, but the party is a progressive one, visit the links to see all the Thrifty Thursday links to see the thrifty treasures participating bloggers have to share.

*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.












For today's Thrifty Thursday, I wanted to share with you this very thrifty bedroom full of ideas and possibilites:

























I love the use of feedsacks for pillow cases.
And check out the artwork...old wood, created into flag artwork:

















I see those metals stars in so many antique stores and really, all over. I love that idea...for this boys bedroom...or a outdoor living space. Really...anywhere!




And now onto my Tablescape:


 Hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.




































































I think we ALL need to begin our day with a big cup of wisdom!
And to whipe our faces with joy!
Don't you?

Wow- you have the post up early. Have a big night planned?
I tried to do a Tablescape this week - nope, not my style.
But I will have a Thursday thrifted post to join in with tomorrow morning.

love your tablescape-it's so low key and that's refreshing sometimes, you know? very coffee house looking, to me, and i don't even know what that means! i guess low key, hip, and relaxing. it's a good thing!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Yes - A big cup of wisdom is a good way to start a day! Thanks for hosting again this week.
Hope you are staying cool.

I love the wood flags too! I would love to do that and make a Texas flag. I'm a Texas girl living in the deserts of Arizona. :(

I love your Foodie Fridays and was inspired to start me own recipe day. It's TODAY!!! I've named it Terrifically Tasteful Thursday! I posted my hubby's birthday Rocky Road cupcakes on here!!

Thanks for hosting! :)
