thrifty crafting:aqua bowl

Wednesday, November 11

here is a sneak peak at a little fall decor.
do you see my little bowl? a few months ago, i went to a great estate sale, but of course i didn't take pictures or blog about it. the prices were great and the dig was even better. i found something that looked like this:
i found this one on ebay. but mine had scallop trim. (i love scallop trim. i think that is why i bought it. that, and it was only $.50.) it is a tole shade from a hanging light fixture. i thought it would make a cute bowl. i spray painted it my favorite color and hot glued twine around the weird line-y part.i really wanted to fill it with sea shells, but i didn't have any. i still don't. and, it is fall. so, i filled it was gourds. what do you think?

So cute! I love it. I'm just impressed at the mere fact with 3 kids you can still find time to decorate. Boy do we have seashells.
If I can just find where I put my big bag of them :( We have endless supply down here on the water and they are free! But can't say they are all pretty and full like the $5.00 ones you can buy at TJ Maxx
:(
I'll let you know.

Take care, ejw
