I saw a sign recently in an outdoor store. I thought I could make it myself, for a friend's vacation getaway.  I made it for FREE. A piece of wood from my basement, and sticks from my yard, cut with snipers and glued and nailed onto the board.
It's perfect for her Get-Away place.
A reminder to for the world to just "Go Away" while she is there....

Free. How's that for thrifty?
Tablescape Thursday
Now, onto to Tablescape Thursday, which is hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.

Tonight we are cooking up some Asian cuisine.
And an Asian tablescape is only fitting...
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!

The sign is very cute and did good. I really like those little leaf dishes, are they made from wood?

Thanks for hosting,

Hi Leigh!
Love the "GoAway" sign -- what a hoot. I have less need of one of those now that my kids are out of the house. :-P

Gorgeous pottery and accessories in your Tablescape pictures .. I love that handmade look!
