Thrifty Thursday #96, 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.

*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.

You have GOT to be kidding me! I went to upload my pictures for Thrifty Thursday and found that I now have to purchase room for my photos. I recall the same thing happening last year. I did (It's only $5 for 20 GB worth of space). However, blogger said it could take up to 24 hours for the transaction to go through.

I am going to check it every hour. I have my post ready to go, just no photos uploaded. So I hope you will come back in the morning and see if my post is up.

In the meantime, I do so hope you will spend some time visiting some of the other Thrifty Thursday participants, at least the 2-3 in front of you and behind you. Leave comments, everyone loves getting some positive feeback, even if its just to say hello.

Thanks so much! I will be visiting too!

Thanks to all of you for stopping by and participating in today's Thrifty Thursday.

Join me tomorrow at Plates and Places for Foodie Friday.

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!

Well that's a bummer! I haven't had that happen yet, but I've heard of it happening to others. It's crazy that you have to do it again now though.

I'll get my post linked up soon. I haven't gotten to where blogger is asking for money for the photo space. I use Picasa and I think they are going to get me soon.

Leigh, whenever I visit your blog, I feel like I'm "almost" on vacation. If only .... (sigh). It's so much fun over here. Thank you for hosting, my friend, and I hope you have a wonderful 2011 with lots of fun partying, meals, and friends.

Maybe as a temporary solution you can upload your photos to photobucket or picnik and then just use the embed code on the HTML? Sometimes I do this instead of blogger because uploading a lot of pictures takes too long on my slow internet speed at home.

Thanks for always hosting the link up party! I love it!

Thank you for continuing to host.
Sorry to hear about the hang up.

Its a gimic, I say. All site hosts know we live for the pictures... and the music...and the friendship...and the personalities...

I'll keep coming back.

Not a fun way to start the new year, huh?! I guess it's one of the hazard's of being a hostess and having sooo many people watching. ;)

Hope you had a blessed Christmas, Leigh, and a great start to the new year...well, or course, except for the photo glitch.

Blessings and Happy New Year!
