Something Special Saturday

                   sprouts xmas 004  '

I’ve been a bit sick this week but today (after some caffeinated coffee) I got a bit of energy and starting messing around with table decorations. 

I found this sweet metal frame at the thrift for a total of 50 cents!  It’s about 5x6.

I picked up some old tinware at a thrift, used a little live greenery, some pinecones, added a candle….instant centerpiece.  I love how simple and easy it was…don’t you love the pattern on that loaf pan?  Now that is vintage!
