In the kitchen:
Shop your produce aisle for inexpensive accessories! I love the color of these green Granny Smith apples.
I love my yummy soy candle from Old Sterling Candle Company. I picked it up at a recent trip to Clinton, MA.
Easy-peasy topiaries made by shopping the produce department. Buy an artichoke (less than $2) and put it in a cup. Done!
Fresh greens (or autumn hues) cut from the yard.
In the dining room:
Remember the hydrangea and daisy bunches I picked up to make my wreath? I used some of them in the dining room .
More uses for my cute little acorns I used to make my wreath. I sewed them onto a piece of twine, cut leaves from an old book using this template from Country Design Style. I also cut burlap leaves using a piece of scrap booking burlap from the craft store.
Now, in case you have the wrong idea, nothing is ever as pretty as it seems. This is what the dining room looked liked when I started taking pictures.
Yup, homeschooling means lots of books and sometimes messes. But I don't want to leave you with that image so here ya go, look at something pretty-it works for me.
I will share the living room and front porch next week...and, of course, you're invited!
