I found this wonderful feeder awhile back and I attempted to use it outside for a bird feeder,
but when it’s outside I can’t see it all of the time.
So I brought it in and stuck it in the dishwasher to clean it up.
I love the galvanized tray and the jar has great clarity,
no scratches. no etching.
It’s grand! but empty…
and this table looks a wee bit bare
time to play “dress the table”, one of my favorite pastimes
this is my “before” (wink)
I needed something to fill the jar
something to add color
since I don’t have birds in the house,
bird seed seemed a bit out of place
My first thought was to add candy corn
believe it or not, I couldn’t find any and I really don’t need that sugar sitting there tempting me to eat just one, or twenty.
then I thought pistachios would be perfect
and they are!
last Sunday I picked up some velvet pumpkins
every girl needs a velvet pumpkin…or two
they never rot, wrinkle up or mold
and they’ll work perfect for this vignette
this is my “after” (wink,wink)
my favorite little iron owl trivet that I paid $1 for at a flea market
he says “BOO” this time of year instead of “WOO”
he’s my favorite addition to my fall decor this year!
It’s beginning to look like fall around here,
now if the weather would just feel like it!
