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.

First of all, I want to welcome our new Thrifty Thursday participants and Tales from Bloggeritaville followers. We have had several comment in the last few weeks, saying that they are new to the Thrifty Thursday party. I hope that everyone will make a point to pay a visit to other participants.
I got my new Ballards magazine this week. I immediatley started thumbing through it and came across these paintings....
Then I saw the price....
$579.00 for the pair?
I think not.
Hey....it's just $299.00 for one.
Are you crazy?
Then I thought of two ugly painted canvases I picked up at the thrift for:
A buck ninety eight.
It could work.
I painted them both with some white paint I had in my basement.
And then I did my best attempt at being a copy cat.
I intentionally wanted mine to also have that organic, natural look.
I made and left all my brush strokes.
And I took a paintbrush, dipped it in brown paint and "splattered" away.
And then.....I hung them on my wall.
My artwork that a second grader could make.
You can too.
A savings of $576.96.
You're welcome, Big Daddy.
And this, my friends, is my Thrifty Tablescape. A little color on these gray days of winter....
Can you believe we have had #99 Thrifty Thursday post???
I am planning a little something special for our #100 Thrifty Thursday Party. Plan to join in! It can be a new Thrifty Thursday post, or you can do a look back at your favorite TT post with links.
I invite you to join me tomorrow at Plates and Places for Foodie Friday.
