Thrifty Thursday #107, 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 hope you got a chance to read the post from my Old Florida Road Trip.
If you didn't...I just returned from a whirlwind tour of The Florida gulf coast-all the way south to Sanibel Island as well as New Orleans. I have been recapping all of the places we stopped along the way. Our theme in Florida was "Old Florida". No big theme parks, no chain restaurants..no crowds. We had a blast!!!  If you missed it,  I hope you will click the link....and then join me in the days to come for more of our Bloggeritaville roadtrip!

I found this lantern a few months ago at the Pottery Barn store in my town. It was $12.99. I love how the glow of the candle can be seen in the back through the punched tin. It's perfect for spring/summer at the "Bratina Cantina"....aka, my deck.



What da ya think?
I think it will cast a night glow into the evening.
I just returned from yet another roadtrip. I feel like a gypsy these days, but no complaints. I have always claimed to have a gypsy soul. Life is good and I enjoy the ride!! That being said, I have much to post about in the coming weeks, but it left zero time for a tablescape this week. Thus...a replay from one of the past:

Today is also Tablescape Thursday hosted by the lovely, Susan of Between Naps on the Porch..
My tablescape today uses burlap placemates, neutral plates in white, grey and brown tones. The glasses are clear with turquoise bottoms.All of my dishes can be found and purchased AT Home.

Your vacation sounds wonderful, especially since you avoided the touristy parts. I bet it's going to be hard to get back into the ol' routine.

Cheers,
