Now onto Thrifty Thursday, which today is included in Tablescape Thursday. It's a double post!

Tablescape Thursday is hosted by the lovely, Susan of Between Naps on the Porch..
Since we are officially now into fall, my tablescape today includes some fallish colors-and it is thrifty! Tortoise shell glasses, rattan "look" chargers (they are actually china) and green and brown plates with brown napkins. To top it off, a centerpiece of autumn flowers (dollar store-my thrifty find!) and a Dollar tree candle, atop a thrift store stand ($3.88)!.

All of my dishes can be found and purchased AT Home.
I invite you to stop by my food blog tomorrow for Foodie Friday!

Leigh--This is all beautifula and I was unfamiliar with the At Home line--thanks for the tip. I do love those chargers.

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh Leigh ... I LOVE those dishes and that whole table "look." But -- I tried to find the items at AT Home, but only found furniture!
Is there another link?

I always love your tablescape. You have such beautiful dishes but I'm curious......How many sets of dishes do you have and where do you store them?


Sarah said...

OK, Leigh, I want to see more! This is such a warm and inviting table. Love the tortoise glassware and the rattan look chargers. Who makes them? I'm filing away the idea of the napkins around the stemware. Very clever and eye catching. Thanks for sharing this wonderful table. ~ Sarah

Thanks for taking time to come visit me.
Binoculars are pretty cool huh!

I would be delighted if you were to do a post on them and link back to me. =0)

I'm going to fix the post real fast right now though. The wording on the lens area was "Paris" Merchant Marines, not France.

It'll be fixed in a minute then have at it!!

blessing and thanks again for hosting such a fun day.
