Yay, a new week with more projects to do. Last week was kind of a bummer week for me as I was recuperating from dental surgery. It slowed me down for a couple of days and while I was sitting there somewhat bored, I recalled an old tray I picked up at a garage sale. I figured with a fresh coat of paint and a pretty arrangement on top it could be brought back to life and grace our living room table just in time for Thanksgiving.
It didn’t take me long to put a couple of coats of paint on this one. After prepping the tray, I used spay-paint, black and gold which were left-over from a previous project.
A couple of hours of drying time and the new and improved tray was ready to be filled with seasonal decorations.
The tray was filled with items that you might find on an enjoyable walk in the woods during the month of November. I love gathering small treasures on nature walks, like the leaves and pine cones, etc.
Pine cones, leaves, nuts and berries, even twigs and pine needles add lots of rich, woodsy texture to this arrangement.
Do you spot that little ceramic squirrel? It’s actually a salt or pepper shaker, I found it on clearance at Hancock Fabrics.
The soft glow of candlelight adds warmth and a sweet ambiance to this display of mother nature’s bounty.
Don’t you just love this time of year? I do.
I’m so glad you stopped by, have a happy week!
