i wanted to keep it simple this year. but i wanted to make the pieces that i did use, things that i absolutely loved. i thought i was done. but then i stepped back, took it all in, and decided i would like to make some adjustments. you know me right? this is entirely normal behavior.
but for now, here is what has been accomplished::
apothecary jars are like the little black dress of home decorating. you can use them all year long. just empty them out each season into a storage container and fill them with new lovelies. the crystals were left overs from a project i did some time ago. it's not quite full enough for me yet but all i've done is shop my house. i feel the winds of change a brewin'.
i'm not thrilled with how the candelabra painting turned out. too bad though. it stays. i did however devise a plan on changing it up a bit. more on that later.
i am so in love with this bowl and pitcher set. i had it done at a ceramic shop here in town a few months ago. looking at it makes me oh so happy.
like i said. vinyl. it's a disease.
a lovely thrifted find. they will soon be fitted with sparkling new eyes.
i can never say enough about spray paint. magnificent invention.
my lovely assistant looking for some recognition.
sundae a la pumpkin.
these pretty ladies are also a thrifted find from quite a while back. i just covered four books with coordinating papers to give them something to do. i have to say i was very pleased with how it turned out.
the best thing about all of this is that it is completely different from what i've done in the past, yet i did not spend one penny on anything new. it was all from things i already had. paint, vinyl and all. i figure once i'm done with adjustments i will probably end up spending ten to fifteen dollars. not bad i say.
what is your favorite decoration for the autumn months?
