September is here and Fall is in the air...well, in the air in most places but not in South Florida where it is still hot...hot...hot. So even though it's still really warm and any sign of Fall like decor would look simply out of place, I figured I can still get my "Fall fix" by mixing in a little bit of the colors.
So off I went to Michael's to see what I could find with an autumn theme, that could work into my coastal cottage decor. So just because it's still hot and Fall weather won't come till like November - if it comes at all.... doesn't mean I can't enjoy some of the loveliness that Fall brings.
|I really liked these - they are textured |
with a raffia like finish. I bought one
bag for $9.99 which included
these three and the two
beige ones below.
|I made these moss balls by taking some styrofoam balls,|
glued moss to them and then wrapped them
in bark covered wire.
|I bought these round balls at Michael's and then |
hot glued the starfish on them.
|Here's some miscellaneous pieces |
that I have gathered from
potpourri with a starfish mixed in.
|Assorted seashells and coral that I |
have collected over the years.
|I had this robin eggs blue wooden |
base and glass cloche that I bought on
Etsy but had never used.
So here is the finished product....What do you think?
|Gotta have a starfish in the mix.|
I'm thinking this will make a nice centerpiece for a
Fall Tablescape. For now - it is on my kitchen counter
...where I think it looks great.
