Thrifty Thursday #117, 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.

*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 love perusing through Pottery Barn catalog, like so many of you. So many ideas and forms of inspiration! You know I love thumbing through, getting ideas. Like these:
Here is the PB versions, along with a direct link to my versions:

Architectural Wood Pillar Holders-Incorporating the capitals and bases of classical columns $29.00 – $99.00  MIne.

Architectural Relic- Hand carved to resemble a corner bracket that braced the facade of a turn-of-the-century building, this relic brings a stately, architectural element to interior walls, with a distressed finish and whitewash to keep the look authentic. $99.00

Pressed Tin Mirror-Intricately detailed pressed-tin tiles once lined the ceilings of countless residences across America in the mid-nineteenth century. Our mirror pays homage to that architectural tradition with embossed metal sheets pressed onto thick wood. $299.00 .Mine.

Architectural Fragment Wall Art, Set of 2 $299.00 These decorative architectural fragments were created to look like pieces of an ornately carved storefront rescued from a 150-year-old building. Mine.Mine.

Architectural Salvage Lamp Bases-After spotting a collection of antique balusters and finials at an architectural salvage shop, our designer created a new lighting collection with unparalleled character. Crafted by hand and then distressed one at a time, each lamp has all the stylish presence you’d expect from something originally designed to bring a creative flourish to the interior of a grand home. $100.00 – $200.00.

Mine-One of my fav projects!

PB Prop Collection - 5' Rustic Ladder $179.00 Decorated with natural objects, festive garlands and hints of seasonal sparkle, our rustic ladder makes a dramatically warm statement during the holidays.

Mine was a free roadside someone's trash pile!

SO look around, you can find these items at salvage places...or  around your home...
...or someone else's trash ;0 !!!!


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.

                                      How about some COLOR in our Summertime?

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!

Leigh, Just goes to show you that we don't have to pay big bucks for the same looks we see in catalogs. We can improvise and come up with something that is equal to, or even better, than the inspiration piece. And at a fraction of the price! Plus, it's more fun....
Thanks for hosting the party.

Love your ladder, Leigh! I just borrowed one just like it from my dad for a roofing project. Maybe I'll "forget" to give it back! LOL. (I don't think he'll laugh!) Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend.
