I hope you were able to "come along on my road trip" yesterday to the Boom days Festival.

But lets not forget the original destination.....Thrifty Thursday!

I'm so glad you're here!

On a recent thrifting adventure I came across this gorgeous Celtic cross.

I like the aged patina that it has with the rubbed details.
It was $9.00. More than I like to pay at the thrift store, but I was in love. It is a fairly large piece and very heavy. It found a home in my kitchen, but has moved from several places throughout my home. I like to move things often. Keeps it interesting, I suppose.

Now onto the Tablescape Thursday segment of the post....which also happens to be thrifty!
This tablescape is a country setting strawberries and tea.
The quilt was a thrift store find. $20.00. It is really an old quilt, not a reproduction, and was in good condition. The colors I loved.
All of the dishes, my moms! Free. A clear depression glass plate. A basic white mug. Doily that was inherited.
The teaspoon purchased at an antique shop very inexpensively. $2.00
The teapot, a gift from my cousin, Gina.
The silver pitcher, found at "the Longest Yard sale" (which was  in August, be sure to google it and participate next year!).

I encourage you to visit my friend Susan of Between Naps on the Porch for some great Tablescape Thursday participants.

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.

Gosh Leigh! I think your cross looks like a museum piece! It's a real bargain at $9 to me. Thanks so much for hosting Thrifty Thursday Link Party...I look forward to it.

I like your old rugged cross

I have one hanging outside on my wooden fence and it has gotten rusty over the years

Thanks for this party
