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.

For today's Thrifty Thursday I had visions of the Mexican sea in my head.
Why?
Big Daddy and I are taking the kids to Mexico next month to visit the ruins.
I cannot wait for my children to see the sea. The color is unlike any I have seen. It's deepest parts are turquoise blue. The shallows, like a swimming pool. So, this tablescape is an ode to my favorite color of blue, and seaside tablescapes.


The plates were found at an antique store, though I know they arent antiques.
Thanks to all of you for stopping by and participating in today's Thrifty Thursday.
I am also linking today to Linda's Coastal Charm. Because this tablescape is certainly coastal!

Please use Mr. Linky below to link up your blog. Please leave a comment after linking. I love to hear from you.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!

HUGS! Hope to see you tomorrow, but not before you leave some "roadmap" love!

While the table setting is beachy it also has a circus feel.

I would like to participate but after I enter my blog post address and my email and I am directed to insert an image from file the thumbnails do not show up. Only the files from my computer. I have occasionally had this issue at other blogs too. I wrote to Linky but never heard back. Just thought you should know.
