It's certainly feeling like autumn now here in the Midwest! I really love this time of year when we can cozy up to a nice fire, bring out our favorite sweaters, and put flannel sheets on the bed. What I don't like is the season that comes after fall! Today I put together this fun arrangement, using a large galvanized tote-tray thingy. Notice if I don't know that correct term for something, it automatically becomes a thingy?! Anyway, I love anything galvanized! Until recently, I had never even heard of the term "Industrial Chic", which galvanized metal seems to play a large role in. Now it seems as if I hear that term everywhere! I picked up this tray thingy last year at a neighbors yards sale, for around $3, I think. I initially had it full of little pots planted with hens-and-chicks. It looked so neat! So today I had a brainstorm to use it as part of a fall centerpiece for the coffee table.
geeeeeze! I sound like a real scavenger!) Some glass votive holders with tea lights, a few mini pumpkins and some gourds, and I was good to go!

Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!
