Goodwill makeover

Do you remember my Goodwill purchases the other day???  Here is a picture if you forgot.


I don't know why that little metal basket for 1.50 spoke to me, it was probably the price :).  I figured that it would come in handy for fruit or shells in the summer, maybe greenery with a candle in it or Christmas balls.  Hmmm...that could be a whole post!  101 ways to fill this metal basket.  Nah...don't want to stretch my brain that much.

Anyway back to what I did with it last night.  No sense in making this more than what it is....a "quickie" post.

I LOVE the white pumpkins!  Always have.  Especially since I love me some white.  Let me see if I have a before picture of this vignette so you can compare....
Summer....shells in the large glass jar.
Old key ring that I have had forever, no lie.  I could never figure out what I wanted to do with it.  The ring is soldered and I tried to get that sucker apart once.  Took wire cutters to it, took a hammer against a sharp stone to it, took some major cuss words to it and no luck.  I hope that is what they make safes out of [or airplanes] because it is NOT coming apart.  Those keys are safe on that ring and will always be together.

Here are a few more shots just because.....




And...just because I bought one orange one thinking that this little basket was the size of an olympic swimming pool :) I put it here..
For that touch of whimsy!

Happy Fall.....hey can you cook these things?  Not that I would but just wondering.


Pin It!

You are so talented! I look forward to your posts every day!

I just bought seven, small, white pumpkins yesterday and I was thinking of just piling them up but now I may use them in a bowl. Thanks for the inspiration! Abby
