Happy Monday, everyone!! Wow! What a thunderstorm we had last night! Torrential rains, winds of 60 mph, and quarter-sized hail. As most of you know, Texas has been experiencing a severe drought; and wildfires have become quite prevalent. Despite the severity of last night's storm, we were blessed to have had some significant rain.
While all of that was going on, I decided to get creative, to provide a distraction. There is a space on the corner of my center island that I thought could use a touch of fall. I dug into my "box of treats" and got creative.
I decided to make this arrangement from grapes and artichokes that I had used before, in some other arrangements. I added a few pumpkins, gourds, a couple of fall picks and a couple of loaves of bread.
Once I got it all arranged, I decided to add Mr. Rooster and a cookbook to the mix. I bought the candlestick lamp at a friend's garage sale for $5 and added the beads to the lamp shade with my trusty hot glue gun.
I think it adds a festive punch of color to the corner of the center island!
