Are these not the perfect addition to my black and white dining room? i had, repeat, had to have them them. Not only would they work year round, but how bout with a pumpkin on them for Halloween? They've actually inspired a new path for my Halloween decorating that you'll have to wait and see. I hope it works out as nicely as I'm envisioning, especially since i already bought the goodies.
Because it looks like something we could diy, i wanted to tell you that the base was already glossy black, and the white plate was attached. All i did was take a cheese dome lid and cross my fingers that it would fit over the large and in charge pine cone!
Ok, so i bought both of them. One was priced at 5.00, and one was priced at 7.00. At the register i inquired about this strange discrepancy, and after huddling and whispering and being satisfied i didn't stick the lower price sticker on myself (well, i never!) they let me buy them both at 5.00. Woot! Good thing i scored that second cheese dome for free! My friend made the center arrangement for my birthday a few years back. Ain't it cute?
Oh, and that blurry thing in the right corner?
Could not get a shot in once she got up there. Love that she's on the table runner, like she's the next logical step in dining room decorating!
How dramatic she looks! I was going to say something like, what an inexpensive tabletop display, but then if you count the adoption fee for the cat, it's really not. Seriously, i crack myself up!
Here's to a great week with cool temps and lots of sun!
