Friday's Find #164 Plus a Farmhouse Fall Vignette!


TGITF Friends! When I spied this tall wooden bushel basket sitting outside Lemons & Lace, I had to turn the car around and go and check it out. It made me think of gathering apples in crisp fall weather, and was just begging to go home with me!  So of course I obliged...

...brought it home, and gave it a mini makeover.  It's the only new treasure, I have to share this week but I wanted to show you how I used it with several other recent finds to create a simple fall vignette with a farmhouse vibe. First, was this vintage basket scored at a thrift store. In the beginning, it looked a little drab, but after a simple upcycle, became farmhouse fab

Next, is the vintage crock full of Indian corn scored at a yard sale. You may remember, originally only the corn was for sale, but I politely persuaded the sisters who were hosting to sell the crock too--proving it never hurts to ask ;)

Last, another yard sale find. This chalkboard planter box originally came from a florist and was just waiting to be filled with some colorful mums.

Here's how I arranged the group together.  What do you think?

The only thing better than a festive fall vignette is a thrifty festive fall vignette! 


Pin it!

  3. It all looks so pretty together Cecilia. The apple basket is wonderful, and even though I love pink I love baskets painted white. It just seems to bring them back to life.

  7. Cecilia, you just amaze me ... you go out and "thrift" all these different items in different weeks ... bring them home, brush a little paint on them, write 'hello fall' on the chalk board, sit them down by your front door and have a perfect Fall display. That deserves a big hug.
