Thrifty Thursday #137, Plus a 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". I also participate in Tablescape Thursday the host of that fun carnival is the Hostess with the Mostess...Susan of Between Naps on the Backporch. That's no lie or exaggeration, each week I visit Susan's porch and just long to be a guest at any of her tablescapes...especially those held on the porch.

My Thrifty Thursday today is a double post, for it is also a tablescape.

These images are from Country Living Magazine, but they offer great inspiration for a terrific Halloween display:

Remember last week I shared some of these crows too. I purchased mine at The Dollar Tree.

My local thrift store has a special section devoted to seasonal items. It is chocked full of miscellaneous items. I purchased two "decor" skulls there last week that I used also in my Halloween display on my buffet. All of these items are vintage items.  Shop your thrift store, ebay, and anyplace you can find inexpensive decor. I also saw some great items at Old Time Pottery. Use what you have and mix it with what you can find for a great eclectic display.


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

 I would also like to  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!

Next week, I will be right back here hosting Thrifty Thursday so join me!

Hi Leigh! Thanks for hosting this party! I am sharing a Halloween tablescape too so you make me feel better about that. I took your advice and got some of my black crows for my tablescape at the Dollar Tree.
