Lying in bed all day is no picnic. . .
of course, I just can't do it!! :) Luckily, the Dr's agree that getting up and moving is some of the best medicine.
Of course, finding a happy medium of not overdoing is always a challenge. I listen to my body, and know when enough is enough!
I'm moving at a snail's pace, but am getting things done.
I have always loved picnic tins, and have collected a nice stack over the years.
I brought a few of them upstairs for my fall décor.
I placed a handmade crochet cloth on the middle of my table and scrunched it up. I placed two of my picnic tins in the middle and filled the top one with a few maize colored plates. I picked 8 of them up at a thrift shop last year.
While vacationing in CA in June I found the cute small thermos for $2 at a thrift store along the way.
This jar came from the estate I have been helping with. I put it out for two sales and it didn't sale. I loved it and decided that I was meant to buy it. ;) I filled it with, not pretzels; but faux pumpkins.
I've kept my decorating pretty simple this year. Remember, I don't want to overdo! lol!
A couple of days later I ran across this little flash card of kids raking leaves and added it to one of my floral frogs.
Here's a couple of other picnic tins I've used.
This one is a reproduction that I bought while vacationing in New England fall of 2015.
I've used it in my family room mantle display.
This sweet pumpkin was made by a blog friend, Fran from
Some days I feel a bit like this mouse looks. (wink)
But then I realize how blessed I am and just like this beauty, life begins to shine!
Yup, some times life is no picnic, but we have to look for the silver lining!!
