On Saturday, after having all I could stand of the political news on television, I decided to take a stroll through Good Will. I'm glad I did. This is my latest treasure.
This is a heavy ceramic dough tray, and I have always wanted a dough tray, so this will suffice for decorating. Do you ever find things that are just too good to pass up? That's what I thought when I saw this. It's a little more than I usually pay for one item, but like I said, too nice to pass up!
I have to tell you, it needed a good cleaning. You can see how badly the spanish moss looks above. Our GW is in the same strip mall as the Dollar Tree, and I knew I could get fresh moss there for a dollar. So I bought some fall colored stems, and spanish moss from the Dollar Tree.
The fruits in the tray are the perfect fall colors.
I gave everything a good wash off, and put the fresh moss in the tray.
Then I clipped my fall stems apart and started placing them in the moss with the fruit.
Here is the "After".
I chose stems that would compliment the colors of the fruit.
It coordinates so well with my place settings, and napkins.
I'll be sharing here:
