Here are a couple of things I bought.
Heaven knows, I didn't need another urn...
I thought it would be an easy clean up...just pull out the ratty stuff and give it a good cleaning.
Well, the inside was filled with something that looked like expanding insulating foam. Not quite what I'd expected; and, it took me about 15 min. to dig it out.
After I got the foam dug out, I gave it a bath. What ever it was originally painted with started coming off. Yuuk! I got all that red stuff all over my hands. After I scrubbed my hands, I spray painted the urn with hammered copper and hammered black paint, to seal in the red stuff.
I filled it with a faux fall spray, dried hydrangeas, a few dried oak leaves and some pinecones.
Speaking of pine cones, I found the twin to my Thymes pinecone votive lantern at GW today...$2.92, and it still had the tag on it.
Sure beats the full price I paid for the one I got at a gift shop last year.
And, I can always use two of anything.
New doormat...I had to get a quick pic of it before my neat-nick hubby swept all the leaves away.
I'm probably silly, but I love fallen leaves. Seeing them blow around and cover the stoop and walkway always says "Fall" to me.
Fall is definitely here in Georgia.
