Thrifty Thursday #100!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Welcome to the Party!

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.

Can you beleive it???

One Hundred Thrifty Thursday Post Parties?
One Hundred Thrifty Projects and Finds!
Thrifty Thursday is almost 2 years in the making, exactly.
The first Thrifty Thursday took place on Thursday, February 12, 2009.
How is that for timing?
But you know what I discovered in preparing for todays' post. That I am not only very unorganized and ADD aflicted, I also cannot add. Today is actually #101! I had two post numbered #31. Have mercy!

But since today is marketed as the special 100, lets proceed as such., LOL.

For the special 100 Thrifty Thursday post, I decided I would share the ten favorite Thrifty Thursday finds I found or created.

1. Though it isn't my *favorite* I must start with how It all began with this Natural Nativity handcrafted in Germany Christmas Pyramid. Perfect condition, it retails for $359-$700. The cost depends on the amount of tiers. Mine was marked $20.oo and found at the thrift.....but I also got 25% off of that price!

2. My thrifty bedding....

3. My Third TT post had a turnout of 10! And I invited everyone into my kitchen, decorated on a budget.

4. I love burlap!

5. One of my favorite things is to go thrifting with friends. In this post, I brought along some of my girlfriends from our "Clematis Club" for a thrift store treasure hunt.....and alot of laughs!

6. Who doesn't love Ms Mustard Seed? I was so appreciative of her guest post in giving advice for thrifting. Sound advice. Great advice! Thanks MMS! Click here to see her wonderful tips!

7. I love to move things around in my home. I get bored. But I still love my hallway, decorated on a budget!

8. Another of my favorite bloggers, Donna of Funky Junk guest posted with her bedrrom redo that still has me drooling. Donna, I love you and the magic you preformed in your bedroom. I am sure that didn't come out right. Anyway....

9.So many of you inspire me daily. And it was a combination of you that inspired me to make one of my all time most favorite projects....The sheet music wreath!

10. Flea Market Style, it comes from shopping thrifty. It gives an eceltic, collected look to ones home. Makes it more interesting. Here is some of my tips!

Now for the giveaway.....
1. Everyone who links to Thrifty Thursday will be entered to win a giftcard to CSN Stores!
2. Everyone who comments on Thirfty Thursday will be entered to win a giftcard to CSN Stores!
3. And everyone who visits all of the Thirfty Thursday participants (who are listed on Thursday by 3PM CST....that way fair) and then comes back leaves me a message in the comments that you did will get 5 extra entries. We will do this using the honor system.

I want to thank CSN Stores for being so good to Tales from Bloggeritaville and often offering myself and TFB readers products and giveaways. CSN rocks!!!! LOVE CSN products, and they are wonderful to do business with. Thank you!!! I will announce the CSN winner next Thrifty Thursday, then allowing everyone time to get in.

I invite you to join me tomorrow at Plates and Places for Foodie Friday.
