Thrifty Thursday #68, 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".

(You can click on any pictures for a closer view)

*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 was driving running some errands this week, when my car suddenly made a turn....... all by itself, mind you.........and I found myself in the parking lot of the Pelham Treasures Thirft shop. Funny how that happens sometimes. Well, it felt it was a sign so I followed my heart and went inside. Boy was I glad I did! Their already low prices were 40% everything in the store!!!

I found some goodies!

Like these cowboy boots....I can't help myself...and at $10.50 it was a bargain, but with 40% off of that price....SOLD!

I love the butterfly design in studs. The design is on the front and backside of the boot. It looks good coming and going! Perfect with a summer dress!

I also found this brand new Sac purse.

Basic Black, goes with everything! It was $6.25 then an additional 40% off.

And then I found these awesome thrifty deals via the internet and took full advantage! I cannot say if they are expired, but as of last week it was still going on:

**VistaPrint is offering customers a FREE customized t-shirt, all you pay is shipping which is only $4.41! Select from 36 shirt designs that you can add your own text too. Click here to see other FREE offers available at VistaPrint. I felt it was time my girlfriends, affectionanty known as the Clematis Club had their own tshirts...and for less than 5 bucks, we all do now! (will show you when they all come in!)

**Budget Prints is offering 250 FREE Business Cards, all you pay is shipping which is $7.95. Great for bloggers to include a business card for your blog when you ship fun things to readers.

**SeeHere is offering 50% off photo posters and collages plus FREE shipping when you use coupon code grads-4 at checkout. An 11×14 poster or collage would only be $3.49! Sorry Offer expired May 31st, 2010, but I am sure that the sight will be offering more goodies. I ordered 6 of these poster prints for another gallery wall that I am working on.

What treasures did you find this week?
Tablescape Thursday
Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.

I also participate in Tablescape Thursday on Thursdays in addition to Thrifty 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 and in the coming weeks I thought I would feature some tablescapes from landmarks in my hometown/city (metro) of Birmingham, Alabama. The photos are part of a cookbook called "Table of Contents" a cookbook by the Junior League of Birmingham. If you are interested in  purchasing a cookbook you can find more info online at their website:
Today's tablescape comes to you from Birmingham Botanical Gardens:

I simple lunch on a hot summer day: Heirloom Tomato Caprise Salad and Bottled Pink Lemonade.

Join me on Friday for Foodie Friday at Plates and Places, where I will be dishing up some great dishes and recipes!

**Be sure to enter the giveaway for a $60.00 gift card to CSN Stores (shop online)  . For all the info and  to enter, click here.** The giveaway ends June 11!!!!

Are you missing post about my Family Circus?  Big Daddy is still tolerating my antics. You can find family post at Picture a day.

I am taking questions for a future post....answering your questions. If you have 'em....leave em!
Let me hear it!
Thanks to all of you for stopping by and participating in today's Thrifty Thursday.
I am also linking today to Linda's Coastal Charm.

No wardrobe is complete without the perfect pair of cowboy boots! WooHoo! You scored Leigh. Love the bag too!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Wow, great deal on the boots -- they are adorable. But this is MY question: do you really wear BOOTS in the summer?
I can't stand much more than flip flops when the temp is 'way up.

You are a brave lady,or you believe (as did my mother) that "you have to suffer to be beautiful!"

Best ... Cass
