Berry Basket...

Recently I found a big berry basket at the thrift made a perfect place for gathering up fall goodies.  Isn't the number fun?

 I took a large old galvanized funnel and filled 
it with some very realistic faux apples.  
I love the look of the galvanized patina...

I added a lovely old linen that I found the same day and a little mum plant...such a simple and pretty centerpiece on the table...

Thank you for all of your great comments on my fun finds post...I thought the transferware plates were wonderful, too!

AND before I go...have you seen the latest copy 
of This Old House magazine?  Missy, of My Cottage Charm, has a wonderful window seat project that is on the cover!  There's an article inside, too!  She is a sweet and creative person and her blog is full of great projects and re-dos.  Hope you'll stop by and say hi!   Congratulations, Missy!

I am joining The Marketplace over 
at Common Ground with some fun etsy listings and over for
 Knick of Time Tuesday, too!  
Hope you'll stop by, too!

Until next time...

  2. Love the basket and the number definitely makes it look great. The vignette you put together looks very fallish for sure.

  18. I love your basket filled with faux apples! I get too many fruit flies with the real thing. :)

  19. Such a tempting window seat.... I'd find it hard to leave it!

    Those apples look so real! It all looks so beautifully autumnal. I am eager for the first frost (!) so I can dig up my dahlias and 'do' my autumn planting!

  20. Love your berry basket. I tried to score one for FREE at our local outdoor market. Didn't work,however I did get some crates for free. Happy Fall Linda.

  21. I thought I remember buying a berry basket. What did I do with it? OH GOD.... it is probably lost in the shed of shame.

  22. Your new basket is lovely. I adore the numbers printed on the side. I love that sort of detailing.

  23. Gorgeous styling here Linda. I bought several similar apple baskets this summer-all sitting on my deck. So behind in what I want to do. xo, olive
