My Favorite Fall Look:
Wreath: this wreath is a simple dark orange. It could be leaves, bittersweet or anything else you can find. Make your own or pick one up.
Wreath hanger: not the usual metal, this is a piece of a burlap sack!
Old ladder: any size will do, as long as it fits your space. We have several wide bottom ones at both locations right now!
Burlap BOO: once again, buy it or make it. This is an easy project with some burlap and paint, but you will probably find them already made at KalamazooKitty.
Old turkey pan: what a great idea for holding pumpkins and gourds! I picked one up at a garage sale last year, but any old metal container will do the trick!
Hay & cornstalks: your local farmer's market or pumpkin patch will have plenty to choose from.
Doormat: pick one that works with your color scheme and the season.
So even if you can't paint your front porch with cool stripes, you can pull together a great fall look that will welcome in the holiday season!
My Favorite Piece @ KalamazooKitty Right Now:
|Drafting Table & Stools|
Oh do I love this "island"! Originally an old drafting table with metal mechanisms and solid wood top, aligned horizontally it makes the perfect kitchen island! Paired with these 4 industrial metal stools, this is the perfect addition to an Industrial Chic home. But let's not stop there! Yes, you could use it as a drafting table, but how 'bout a craft table for the kids? A wrapping station or scrapbook center? A folding table for the laundry room or a card table in the basement for parties? A dining table on a screened-in porch or a desk for your home office? The possibilities are endless, which is why it is my favorite item on consignment right now! This drafting table, and stools priced separately, are at the West Main location. If you have been looking for one of these treasures, this is one of the best I've seen! Solid, sturdy and ready for a new home...like yours!
That wraps up August! Tomorrow welcomes September...back to school, cool night air, mums in bloom and leaves starting to fall. This is my FAVORITE time of year in Michigan!
This is from Kalamazoo...to you!
