Fall plaids and mums

A couple years ago
 my friend, Sena, 
was moving from her  
 beautiful old stone farmhouse,
and she called me and told me she 
had something to give to me.

At the time,
I remember wondering 
what it could be?

Then one day it arrived!

It was an old chicken nesting bin.

So cleverly, 
she had kept it
 in her kitchen's walk-in pantry
where she used it 
as cubbies to keep her family organized.

Such a cute piece, right?

So this week it is
by the back door filled  
with mums and some other things 
for some seasonal color.



And thank you for stopping by today.
 Enjoy your week.

Enjoy your week!

That is a really fun piece and I like how you used it for your porch decor. Love your sweet dog on the bench and the cute pumpkin sap cans. I like lots of fall colour on the porch.

Love your fall colors, your golden, yummy doggie, your chicken coop piece, . . . what a treat to have it show up at your door. I like very much how you arranged your entrance pieces . . . charming indeed.

And I must say, what fun it was today to find in the mailbox a large envelope with the Holiday issue of Midwest Living! What fun it is to be a Giveaway Winner. Thank you very much!
