Thanks for joining me today! It has been quite a week here in the south. Lost of mixed emotions all attributed to the historic tornado's that blew through here last Wednesday. I wrote a post of my personal experience, I continue to count my blessings. And like many that continue to watch the images on TV, I feel led. I am going to be spending the next few days helping in different affected areas of my state.
I have a personal request, every Thursday I host Thrifty Thursday in the spirit of saving, but today I wanted to post in a spirit of giving.
I hope that you might consider GIVING today. If everyone could donate as little as $5-$10 (more if you are able), it adds up and will make a difference. Everyone is familiar with the Red Cross, an organization that is touching lives here in Alabama and on a daily basis across our nation.
Could you give a little today? What you give might provide a family a meal, clothes, a bed, a roof, repairs...and a new start. A little monetary donation could make THE difference in the life of someone else.
Donate to the Red Cross Here.
And if you are not able or in a position to give, I ask for your continued prayers for those across the south that have been hit so hard by these terrible storms.
Now.....on a lighter note.....
For today's thrifty Thursday, I wanted to share some finds that I have picked up here and there:
Antique books, perfect for display on a desk or sofa table, bound together with jute.
A vintage Italian jewelry dresser. The paint on this is gorgeous!!!
Three vintage scrabble boxes with wooden pieces from the early 1970's.
A beautiful jewelry box, with abalone and peacock.
This vintage shoe shine box.
And finally, another Italian jewelry box, this one in gold.
I have opened an Tales from Bloggeritaville Etsy store. I am constantly changing up pieces, and then are those that I just can't walk away from. You can benefit now in my Etsy store. I do hope you will check it out, favorite it and come back and shop. I am always putting new inventory in the Tales from Bloggeritaville shop.
And now onto our tablescape....Tablescape Thursday is hosted by the lovely, Susan of Between Naps on the Porch..
In colors of SPRING......
All of my tablescape dishes all of which can be found Harmony Landing.
