Thrifty Thursday #119, 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.

You might recall a post I wrote about a month ago regarding my son, Bama's room. He had returned home, after the April 27th tornado in Tuscaloosa, when classes were cancelled to find his room at home unlivable due to water damage. From there he went and lived with my mother. Well, within the last two weeks his room was finally completed and he was able to move back him before school starts.

We made some nice changes, a brighter color...and some thrifty finds that I am anxious to share with you...

Everything you see in this corner, thrifty finds. I am still working on finding a thick cushion for the chair. It came with the ottoman and was $30. for both. The Lamp was $10, with tags still on it. And I love that gold truck. I had thought he could take it back to school with him and it'd work perfect for storage, but the more I think of it, the more I reconsider. It also makes a great place to sit. This is not how the room will be set up, we are still working on that but for thrifty purposes....I wanted you to see. That trunk....$3.88! A good day at the thrift!

Love the leather straps!

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 a "vintage" tablescape in greens and golds?

                  All of these products can be found at  AT HOME  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!

Thanks for hosting again this week. My contribution is small, but I have not been "thrift shopping" very much lately.
