Fall Tray~

We have an iron tray with glass that we keep on our coffee table in our family room to set drinks down on and the remote controls.  I decided to add a bit of fall to it as the leaves here are FINALLY changing now that the South is cooling off.  I had some  burlap left from another project, so I just cut a piece the size of the glass, fringed the edge and placed it on the tray.  I went out into the yard and collected some fallen leaves, dried them, and placed them on top of the burlap and covered with the glass.  I love all of the beautiful colors nature  has to offer!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!  It is beautiful here.  We have been receiving some much needed rain, but expect clear  cool skies for Halloween!

So clever. I just have a boring old tray from target on our ottoman. Never thought of giving it some personality. Super cute.

Lauren, I love what you did with the burlap. I was seriously just wondering today how to incorporate that into our home. Such beautiful leaves happening at your place! And I like your new blog look. Did you do it yourself?
