Thrifty Thursday #133

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".

(You can click on any pictures for a closer view)

*Thrifty Thursday takes place each Thursday and is hosted here at Tales from Bloggeritaville, but the party is a progressive one, visit the links to see all the Thrifty Thursday links to see the thrifty treasures participating bloggers have to share.

*Don't forget to copy and paste the Thrifty Thursday logo button to your computer so you can add it to your side bar and your Thrifty Thursday post. That way visitors will know that your are participating in Thrifty Thursday.

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to swing by a local festival. I love the ones that feature both local artist as well as good old fashioned "JUNQUE".
It "sounds" better like that!
While there,  I purchased this piece of original artwork in a clearance bin for $10.00. It is an original photograph taken in Germany of a bicycle. The photograph was then digitized. I like the look of it, and for $10.00 it was a bargain. I am clueless as to where I will put it in my house.

I collect antique boxes (among other things). I purchased this orange box for $6.00 and a black one for $8.00

I also purchased some silver candles for $3.50

This silver "Jesus statue" (from Mexico) for less than $4.00.

I am not participating in tablescape this week. For me this past week of running kids around, followed by a weekend getaway. There might have been food (ok, who am I kidding....probably to much food) but as far as tablescapes...they took a hit.

Such is the glamourous life of being a mom.....
but I wouldnt trade it for anything!
I encourage you to visit my friend Susan of Between Naps on the Porch for some great Tablescape Thursday participants.

 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!
You can always visit me on FACEBOOK,

I love me some friends: be they new friends or old friends!

Thanks for hosting. For some reason my link to my thrifty party won't link up, but Linky accidentally linked my non-thrifty baby wolf costume. Sorry about that. Hope my correct link will show up:(

Boxes are my absolutely weakness. I love the mystery of trying to figure out what is in them or what was their purpose. Then I like to find new purposes for them. Thanks for sharing and hosting such a great party!
