We found this huge china cabinet at an auction a few years ago for $20. Nobody else wanted it because it was so big. I gave it a complete makeover and now it houses our Christmas Village year round.
The front door is the perfect place to spread some festive fall fun, and for some reason when I think of fall one of the things that comes to my mind is owls. No idea why, but hey… why not? lol.
I have a thing for vintage magazine racks, especially the metal or wrought iron ones with curlicues. Truth be told I love almost anything with curlicues, and the magazine rack that I repurposed for this planter project has plenty of them.
One of my favorite things to do is make stuff out of other stuff, and because I'm a girl who pretty much sees a wind chime in almost everything this project quickly morphed into a wind chime.
I'm always looking for ways to add some fun to my gardens, and I love wandering around dollar stores because I never know what I'll be inspired to bring home with me. On a recent visit I saw some lovely plastic clothes pins, and I couldn't resist picking up a few packages.
I've always loved polka dots and when I saw this $1 vintage set of what I think are cooking grills, or some kind of roasting pans, I immediately knew what I needed them to be... hanging jewelry organizers.

Have you ever found something that you put away years ago and had forgotten you even had? Well that's what happened with the spoons that I used to make these cutlery flowers. I made some flower plates last summer and I thought it would be fun to make smaller versions for small gardens and planters. Can you guess what I used for the centers of the flowers?
