I replaced the paper under the glass with scrapbook paper.

Candle

Hi Kelli,
I have that same picture frame. What a clever idea. It looks great used in that way. Makes a pretty tray to set things on.

I haven't made a tray out of a picture frame for ages. Now I wanna make one again!

Very pretty fall decorating!
My blog is still "The dog days of summer" themed!

Dianne said...

I can just smell your candles, assuming they are apple or pumpkin, even cranberry scented. ; )
Pretty piece!

Anita said...

Hi Kelli!

As I can see, you are still a very busy bee, getting ready for autumn!

What a nice display! It's such a pitty that scrapbooking is almost unknown here in Germany and such pretty paper is really hard to get! I was so delighted when I found some wonderfull dollhouse wallpaper in Paris this summer! I still need to make up my mind on how I will use it for some interesting paper projects.

Have a wonderful week-end!

XoX, Anita

Scott and Kerri said...

Kelli,
What a great idea! That is a beautiful center piece. I wish I had your creativity, but I have your blog to consult when my decorating ideas get the thumbs down from my family. I love that wreath I bought and can't wait to put some fall leaves on it. Have a great weekend, and if you are going to be affected by Ike stay safe.
Love Kerri

What a great idea Kelli and the result is just gorgeous :)

Very very nice! I saw a tray very much like yours at a very fancy shop recently - the only major difference was that it had handles! I like your arrangement very much! I need to get started with fall - soon! Time to get up in the attic and drag out those boxes!

That is beautiful! I was thinking of all your beautiful centerpieces and trays while at Target today. I found a great square chocolate colored melamine plate on clearance. When I get home I'm going to make it the centerpiece for our dinner tomorrow night.

Thanks for the inspiration!

That's beautiful, Kelli! You always have the best and most creative ideas!
You were on my mind this morning as I was reading about the hurricane making landfall. I know you're not in the worst area, but I pray all will stay well with you and yours! Do y'all expect a lot of rain still where you are?
Take care and thanks for taking the time to do the Show and Tell!
