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.

Today is a two-fer. My Thrifty Thursday is also my Tablescape Thursday.
I made a visit early this week to my local thrift store. It's always funny to me how some weeks you might have a run on plates and dishes. And then others I might score on designer label clothes. This week it was dishes!
Please ignore the tablecloth that I should've ironed.
Here is a look at my Thrifty Tablescape:
Antique Table Linen: free, gift
Lantern: Free. I won it playing ladies bunko!
The stand the lantern is sitting on-Thrift Store 99 cents
Candles: Glade. I took Glade labels off and then took old Sheet music and wrapped, cut, taped and then added a piece of jute to the middle.
Plates-all plates thrift Store purchases this week:
Mikasa Maxima (swirl pattern) $1.99 each, I purchased 6 lrg plates
Homer Laughlin scalloped plates$1.42 each. I purchased 6 medium sized "salad" plates
Johnson Bros, Richmond design ("crest" shape on five sides) $1.99 each, I purchased 6 lrg plates
Johnson Bros, Richmond design saucers 8 @ 59 cents
The glasses-Sadly enough. I have ahd forever. I cannot recall where they came from. Macy's?
The flatware is Oneida- wedding gifts
What is a tablescape without the food? I invite you to stop by my food blog, PLATES & PLACES, tomorrow for Foodie Friday!
