Can you believe it is October?! Where has this year flown to? My hubby has our first pile of fallen leaves out for pick-up already!
I haven’t done a lot of fall decorating yet – I’ve had a few busy weeks recently I do have some fun pumpkins now and hope to do a tablescape soon. I created a couple of fall bouquets out of some dried stuff I bought at the Springfield flea and some of my own Hydrangea and some pussy willows I had from Spring.
I had this cute potted plant left over from our booth in The Vintage Marketplace and I wanted it inside. But inside plants in clay pots are a pain to keep watered without making a mess.
So I took a pot that was a bit bigger and stuffed a thick layer of paper towels in the bottom.
Then I set it inside this cool vintage metal lampshade.
A friend had these at the flea and I sold several of them for her in our booth. And I kept a few! I like the idea of turning them into a string of outdoor lights someday.
I also like the way the clay pot fits inside and it adds a bit of an industrial touch to my living room.
I added my rusty diamond tiara for a bit of bling.
A bit of bling never hurt anything did it?!
And then I tucked it in here with one of my fall bouquets. The other bouquet is on the front porch and I’ll be getting some pics of that soon.
I love the mix of colors of the dried Hydrangea. I still can’t believe we are into fall already – I really wasn’t ready to give up summer.
