The tour of my fall home continues. . .
The theme for this year being “natural and thrifty.”
I have just about run out of my pinecones that I gathered at a friend’s house.
One sweet reader mentioned that she might mail me some of the tiny pinecones from Colorado?!
I can’t even believe it?!
I am on the search now for acorns or nuts.
I feel life a squirrel.
I wish I knew a squirrel.
I bet he could tell me where all of the nuts were around my area.
(Maybe I am not a squirrel, but a nut!)
Back to my house.
Here is the newly decorated drop leaf table that sits in a tiny hallway that connects my dining room to my kitchen.
So, let me share the thrifty finds from this table.
I bought a set of three of these stars for $25.
A little more than what I typically pay, but I just really loved them!
This is the middle size.
The biggest one is VERY large and will probably go with my outside fall decorations.
The small one does not have a home. . . yet.
(You are seeing the reflection of the bathroom that shares this tiny pass-thru.)
I have a few standard items that I am always on the hunt for.
One of them is pretty white containers.
You can just do so many beautiful things with them.
They look great filled with different items, or all just grouped together empty.
One got pinecones,
One got a dried Annabelle hydrangea,
And, one got a nest with an oversized acorn.
(Wish I could find a tree with acorns like that!)
Notice the stand with the flying pig (I just can’t resist a cute flying pig!)
I paid full price for this one several years back.
The one on the dining table is the one that I paid $1 for.
(Stands are also a standard item on my “what to look for at thrift stores” list.)
Once again, their possibilities are endless.
Anything looks more important when it is on a stand.
This table was also a yard sale find!
You can read more about it here.
I am always fascinated at what people are getting rid of!
I worked in my yard for most of the day.
Everything needed a good cleaning.
I cut trimmed, mowed, weeded, etc. . .
Have to get all of that done so that I can go to the yard sales Saturday morning!
The weather is really nice here in Murfreesboro this week, so that should inspire folks to clean out their garages.
Life to the full,
Here are the places that I party!
