Thrifty Thursday #116, + 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.

I hope you were able to drop by earlier this week and read my post on Canoe the Cahaba. It was how we spent our Memorial day. We had a wonderful time, despite the reptilian inhabitants (of which you can see MANY of by clicking over to read).

Along the route I did a little clean up of the Cahaba. I collected "beach" glass, rather it was river glass. Perfectly worn edges of glass in a multitude of colors. Gorgeous. Trash in the river...but in my treasure box at home...well....treasures and reminders of our trip together. Eventually I will move the glass into a glass bowl to truly appreciate the colors, but for now....A Thrifty Treasure (and a way to clean up our rivers!)

On Friday I plan to feature some of my Thrifty Thursday contributors, so be certain to drop by on Friday! It is all of YOU who make THIS a PARTY!!!!!

Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.

Join me for a Summer Lunch, won't you?

All of these products can be found at Harmony Landing in Homewood, Alabama.

What is a tablescape without the food? I invite you to stop by my food blog, PLATES & PLACES, tomorrow for Foodie Friday!

Oh yes, I did read your post about your river trip and all those snakes. Eeesh! You are a much braver woman than I and that is the truth.

Your river glass will look very cool in a glass bowl/container.

I like your tablescape, too. Love the ferns underneath the clear glass plates.
