Great thing about catalogs (like Pottery Barn); is free inspiration. Last fall's issue showed glass jars of votive candles with twine wrapped leaves on the outside~~I decided to buy those $1.00 candles and do some copy~cat decorating~~
Used some jute wrapped around a big pillar candle with glass hurricane shade:
found some more pretty leaves and fall picks to play with too~~
Last year I bought this huge pine~cone candle at the resale shop for under $2.00~~
today I bought the smaller restaurant platter at Catholic Charities; loving the brown stripe and layering it with a bigger platter that is "fallish" looking~~
Bought this vintage Halloween pumpkin last year for only $7.00~~still lights up! ~~you can barely make out the cat in this photo right beneath the pumpkin~~
I like seeing a bit of autumn in each room of the house; sometimes it's just really plain and simple: a small candle with pinecones in a bowl. Are you loving this time of the year?
