vintage inspiration for fall...

You know when you pin something that inspires you...



And you want one, or something like it for yourself?

Well, thanks to a wonderful neighbor and some of my dried hydrangeas, I put this centerpiece together for my kitchen table...



I love the old tree branch handle...


And I love the old, rusty hardware...


Again, here is my inspiration...



And here is my fall version...


I can always whiten lighten it up in the spring!

Sharing with Debra for Vintage Inspiration Friday!
Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful weekend!!

Oh...and if you live nearby...don't forget the
Wrentham Country Store's
this Saturday and Sunday, 10 to 5 both days!

Dried hydrangeas in these hues are my favorite! I have to buy them and have them shipped to me here in Texas. I wish I could grow them!
They look gorgeous on your table.
