After an August break, Five on Friday returns today on English Amy's blog called Love Made My Home. I'm happy to be linking up this little corner of our house today.
Let's pretend I put these things together because they have a feel of late summer/early fall and add texture and lightness to an otherwise drab room. Truth is they probably just ended up here with no where else to go and I just noticed today they conveniently add up to five.
One...Magnolia Leaf Wreath. I may have to change out the bow as it's getting a little worn, but for now the shimmery gold color is coming into season. The wreath hangs on an old garage sale frame to give it added oomph.
Two...Old garage sale table lamp with Pottery Barn shade. To say I love these shades is an understatement. I bought two of these smaller ones and two larger ones some time back, and it was the best money I've ever spent at Pottery Barn.
Three...The most realistic fake candle I've ever had! Honestly, this candle's wick makes it really hard to tell it's fake.
It works on two little triple A batteries and has a remote control. The "flame" is this little piece of plastic, shaped like a flame, that wavers back and forth and makes the light look like it's flickering.
Wild Bill thought it was real until he picked up the remote and turned it off and on by himself.
He has a little flower pot in his lap for now, but soon little pumpkins will fill up the bowl around him to help him transition to Fall.
Five...Did you notice the old farm table with baskets that everything is sitting on? I bought it at an actual farm sale back in the early 80's and it was already old back then.
I've painted it a few times...forest green, french gray, and of course white too...now it's going to get a little distressing and some dark wax very soon.
Well, that's my five for this week. Follow the link HERE and check out what the others are up to before the Labor Day weekend is over.
Thanks for dropping by!
