I just finished my first fall decorated area in my home. There were hits and there were misses. Meaning some decor looks okay, and the rest needs to go.
Vintage Box Vignette:
I like the way my old vintage box arrangement turned out.
All that’s new is a brown transfer ware platter I found at an estate sale this week for $15 with 25% off. And some cheap flower picks.
You see, sometimes you score when you create a craft or project. But not always.
The Best Of Intentions:
When I start a new project, I have the best of intentions. I even have some idea of what I want to do. I’m very organized in the rest of my life. But my “projects” just “evolve” and sometimes veer off the road a bit.
This lampshade did veer off the road a bit. Quite a bit. I should have stopped before I added so much that it began to look overdone. But alas I did not.
How This Happened:
I ended up with burned fingers and little gaps all around the top.
Then I went digging through my embellishment drawer and got out these gold leaves and try to hide my mistakes. But I misjudged a bit on those and it sort of looked worse.
The Button Jar:
I’ve got other fall decorating ideas in my head. And I hope it does not entail more burned fingers.
Or glitzy blunders.
