Use What You Have...or Have Been Given....for a Happy Fall!

Saturday, Luke had his old friend Ben over for the day and the night, and his friend's mom is a dear friend. She sent with him a bag of gourds! She grew them herself! Thanks, Pam!

They're so colorful and cute, I have them scattered around the house, a few spilling from a small galvanized bucket on the front porch, some on the dining room table around a fall candleholder on top of a fall tablecloth, and a few along with a colorful fall leaf sits on our kitchen table. I picked up the glass dome at a garage sale this summer and it just fits this $1 cake plate I picked up earlier this spring at another sale. It's a lot of fun to change the display...sometimes you may even find it has cupcakes or other desserts sitting under the glass!

It's just the little things to make you happy when the seasons change and they're also the simplest: a homegrown gift from a friend, and someone else's castaways that make your home and your table brighter!
