September Kitchen Decor

"When you change the way
you look at things, the things
you look at change."

~ Wayne Dyer ~

I just salvaged this rusty metal bucket from a farm dump! The bottom's rusted away, but you can't even see it. I placed a wide glass vase inside for wildflowers.

This pastel pitcher sat in my booth for months before I decided to bring it home.
I was glad to have it handy for an overflowing bouquet of hydrangeas.

One of the first ways I decorated our home for fall on a budget was with apples.
They used to be growing in our backyard. Now I just pick them up at the grocery.

This rusty wire wreath was a flattened oval jumble when I found it.
I carefully pulled it into a wider oval shape. It's hanging on a clear pushpin.

My husband found these insulators in a ditch! Took quite a bit of scrubbing,
but now they're a colorful focal point on the countertop (or windowsill).

Just by bringing in a few fresh elements, I now feel so much better
about my kitchen. Ready to do some baking and welcome fall!

How about you... are you ready for the change of season?


  1. Lovely! Seriously, I love how you can transform "junk" into something truly beautiful. That wire wreath is amazing!!

    1. Lisa, thank you so much!! Awesome to know someone like you, who understands and appreciates it as well. Yeah, and the wire wreath was supposed to go in my booth, but it's gonna hang out here for awhile :)

  2. I agree with Lisa. Love your latest posts!

    1. Hi Janet, and thanks! You'd like Lisa, I think :) Ever since the graphic artwork took off, I put these sort of posts on hold. It's been nice to change things up!

  3. Everything is lovely! I also love the Wayne Dyer quote, and I really believe that our outlook is so important!

  4. This room looks so nice, comfortable and welcoming.
