Thrifty Thursday #83, 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.

I know it's early.....like really early....but to get things done, one has to get her ducks in a row. Ok, I have to get MY ducks in a row. I've been working on some driftwood trees for Christmas using some found driftwood from Fort Morgan. I also have some other driftwood projects going on,but thought I'd share one that was complete. Though this is one of many I hope to make and different sizes.

























What do you think? I LOVE driftwood!
I also have a tablescape that is festive in the theme of a trip I am leaving for this weekend, Mexico!




















All dinnerware and tablelinens can be found at AT HOME in Homewood, Alabama.
My FAVORITE store.

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.

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

Hi Leigh,

I love the lighter look of your blog! I always had trouble reading it, although it was worth the effort.

Hi Leigh!
MEXICO? Oh have a BLAST. I've only been once, and just for one day! Take loads of pictures to share.

Love the driftwood tree; I adore driftwood -- its color, its soft surface, everything. What a great idea to make it into a tree!
