Yesterday I went for a hair cut. Afterwards I thought I would stop off at our local thrift. Bet you can’t guess what I was hoping to find. . .yup, another picnic hamper.
Well, didn’t find that, but soon I was tossing a few items into my cart.
As I headed out to the yard area to see if there was any other special ‘junk’ I glanced into my cart. I realized that I had the makings of a fun vignette. And yes, I did find something fun in the yard that I will share later.
This is just a little ‘sneak peek’.
I found this large tray for $1.50
The little glass (whatever) I thought I would use as a mjni cloche and the bottle with the silver trim were both $.50
I knew right away that this $3 candlestick would be great for Halloween.
Not wanting to wait I thought I would throw together a Fall vignette.
This morning two of my friends and I went to an estate sale. Afterwards we stopped by T.J. Maxx. I told myself that I was ‘NOT’ going to buy Fall or Halloween!
Well, guess who had to eat their words.
I bought a pumpkin and an owl. . .but look how cute they are! At $9.99 ea. I couldn’t resit. I love the plaid fabric and the wooden stem on the pumpkin. And those owl eyes, sigh!
My friend Peggy gave me a belated birthday gift. It was a wire basket full of goodies. Tied to the top was this sunflower and burlap. I wrapped the stem with a piece of green ribbon and added it and a couple of numbers to the pumpkin.
I googled to see when the first day of Autumn was. Wouldn’t you know that it is Sept. 22nd. Darn, I only had one #2. So I did the next best thing, 30 days till Autumn. Really though, I think I will change it to a 9 for Sept. Doubt I will count down the days. Oh, and I forgot to mention that I got a baggie of the wooden numbers at T.J’s for $2.
I added some acorns and berries inside the cloche, a paper feather, and a piece of parchment paper that I slightly curled the ends.
I love mixing the old with the new.
All sitting atop my thrifted tray. Easy Peasy. . .A Fall vignette!
I just played with it a little today. It won’t come out until September. Who knows, by then it may change a little.
Don’t you love it when something comes together that easy?
I will be sharing with :
