Well, aside from the rumpled dog bed underneath this table, I've got quite a bit of fall in this room.
My little beasty coffee table is beginning to really grow on me now that I'm done having to fix it. And fix it. And fix it some more.
This is up next to the window looking out over the patio. I thought a bit of fall would brighten up that little corner.
Of course my weathered farmhouse that's been spending some time outdoors tells us it's fall.
And look what I treated myself to, from, of ALL places, Pottery Barn! Pottery Barn is WAY out of my league normally.
But when I got my rebate back from my computer (which is of course a gift card to buy something and not money you can use as cash), I knew exactly what I wanted to spend it on.
I've loved these three-tiered galvanized trays since the moment they came out, and have drooled over them on other blogs.
Just so you know, the pretty black three-tiered one from Hobby Lobby isn't very stable. I can see it's going to break before long. I should have known at that price. Though it was $34 and I got it for $17. So I wouldn't advise buying one.
I can't keep the spindles straight and that fact alone has nearly driven me nuts because I have to have everything straight. Crooked and I just don't get along.
My SIL told me he knows someone who works for HL, and that they send her to China to get the cheapest stuff. Anyone ever heard this bit of gossip? I can believe it due to the lack of quality I now see in their decor.
Oh, and I want to thank you all for your votes for the Amara awards. As most of you already know, I've been short-listed in my category, and will be invited to London to see who wins.
However, flying to London is way out of my comfort zone. So I shall find out when it's announced from the comfort zone of my home.
