Recently at my local thrift I came across this angelic bust:

I recall seeing it in Southern Living catalog some time ago. Of course, the Southern Living catalog is no longer, it was purchased by Willow House. Maybe they will carry something similar in the future.

I loved the aged feel and the patina. Of course, it does have some chipping along the wing, but to only adds to the character of this angel.

Even I am a little chipped. ;)
The price....$2.48

Tablescape Thursday
Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.

For this week's tablescape...well, admittedly a cheat. I saw this tablescape at an antique store. I loved this cobalt blue depression glass. Gorgeous!!!

And speaking of food.....

What is a tablescape without the food? I invite you to stop by my food blog, PLATES & PLACES, for Foodie Friday!

Thanks to all of you for stopping by and participating in today's Thrifty Thursday. Please use Mr. Linky below to link up your blog.

I encourage you all to spread the love and visit the other thrifty Thursday participants, for that's what half the fun is. Aside from seeing a cool treasure it's making friends!

Oh, I don't consider it cheating to share a tablescape from a store. A tablescape is a tablescape and it's fun to share the inspiration where ever we find it. I always have my camera in my purse ready to when I find inspiration.

Hey again Leigh. I'm sorry for the inconvience but I had to repost my link because I had to correct it. The incorrect one is #98 if you'd like to remove it.

Thanks, Tracy :)
