Leaves and Berries

Hello Friends!
It has been a perfect fall weekend. I hope you
are all enjoying yours. While I was at Marshalls
this past week this tuscan vase in red caught my eye.
It reminded me of Willow House and for $8 I was sold.
I decided to try my hand at making an arrangement.
Don't laugh. I am so not the creative type...:)
I found the red leaves and berries at Michaels.
Join me and I'll show you the result.
I displayed it between the red lamps from Kirklands.
This is the console table in our dinette area.
All photos may be clicked for details.
The console has been a nice addition to the kitchen.
I use it for extra linen and plate storage.
I really liked the detailed medallion.
It's a good match to the red rooster plate.
The rooster frame and tassel complete the vignette.
I have been super busy this past month and see no signs
of it slowing down. I decided to take a little bloggy break.
I will see you all in about a week.
Thank you for coming by and your kindness.
Have a wonderful week!

The vase is very pretty, Melissa!
I think you did a great job with the arrangement. It does look great on the side table with the rooster.
I'll look forward to when you're back. I know how busy things can get and sometimes you have to pick and choose what you do.
Take care!

Love all your reds, it makes everything so cozy and warm, I was thinking about painting my kitchen a neutral color, but when I come and visit your lovely home I then decide to keep my Martha Stewart Red! To heck with those real estate shows!!! :)

Thanks for inspiring me each time I visit!

Love love love it! Good job with the floral arrangement woman:) Most of us find it hard to arrange flowers. Take care and don't overdo anything. Take care of business and come back to us soon.
