Changing up the hutch

Usually the hutch in my kitchen is dressed with blue and white.Now that my Fall decorating is in full swing,I decided to remove the blue and just keep the white.
I also used my galvanized bucket to create an arrangement.

To anchor the plates on the second shelf,I used rub-on letters to spell words that would carry them into Thanksgiving.
A fun, easy,and inexpensive(this seems to be my mantra)project.I can easily change them up for Christmas!I will share more fall fluffing soon.

Fall wreath

Hello and welcome. In my last post I showed my palette for Fall decorating. This year i decided I wanted to make some kind of wreath to hang in my living room. I don't have a mantle,but wanted a focal point. What to make?....I turned to the one place I go to(everyone else does too) Pinterest!I fell in love with a corn husk wreath! Perfect color, just enough texture,and best of all inexpensive. There is a link on Pinterest to a wonderful blog called Lakeshore cottage living, where you will find a great tutorial!

It was extremely easy. Just what I was looking for.

Here's a little tip if you decide to try this...I had no luck finding corn husks in any regular grocery store.Try an ethnic grocery store.They had the corn husks in a huge bag for less than five dollars.I have a ton left,and will be thinking of some other projects to use them on.
