A bargain is a bargain

I can't resist a bargain, whether I like it or need it, if it's a deal, it's mine! Such was the case at the end of last years fall season. One of craft stores had 90% off - yes you read that correctly, 90% off all the fall flowers, pumpkins etc. I was like a kid in a candy shop, I was un-stopable and well you know, the rest is history.
A couple of hours and many, many bags later, I arrived home. My husband eyed the merchandise and asked what I was going to do with 14 bags of silk flowers, pumpkins and cat-tails. Duh, silly man, NOT THAT MANY! He was close, but he'll never know.  Well they were put away and somewhat
forgotten. This year while going through that storage area, I rediscovered my bargain treasures. Spread over the kitchen table, I decided to just dive in doing something I've always enjoyed.
Probably the hardest part about this whole thing is finding a place to store them when the season is over. So here are the results of my great bargains.
This is arrangement # 1 made for my DR table.
and this one was very tall - so perfect for the floor.
and arrangement # 3
and this one
I know a bit of overkill but I did promise darling hubby to stay far away from craft stores post season this year. Happy Fall everyone!

  1. Great story, and your arrangements are lovely! It's still summer here, but, being a New Englander by birth, I'm waiting for those cool days of autumn.
