Thrifty Thursday #136, Plus a Halloween 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".

Now onto Thrifty Thursday....

I found these whimsical lanterns at the thrift store for $6.88 for the pair....

I put them on my mantel, although I don't think this is where they will stay. This was just for photographing purposes. Big Daddy would rather you notice his big eyesore..uh! I mean TV! yeah, TV.
Ahhh, who am I kidding. Its a monstrosity of an eyesore.
What is it when men at their TV's?
But I digress....
I just love the lanterns! I cannot stop looking at them!

I wonder how many times I can say the word "Whimsical"?


And THAT is the Thrifty Thursday post for this week...

What "CHEW" got?
Tablescape Thursday:

Nice link party! It's my first time here, and so I shared the story of my $1000 house. It took me about a year to do all the rennovations (borrowed tools and scavenged materials, woot woot!) and now I have a great place to live and no mortgage!

Men and TVs. At least we know where they are, right?
