This Crate & Barrel piece has had three lives SO far . . .
Life One: $5.00 (at 50% off day) at the thrift store . . .
Life Two: For my fall table centerpiece . . .
Life Three: Dressed for Christmas!
This is what I'm starting to steer toward, items that can be re-used from season to season and holiday to holiday. Another trick: Replacing just the images in picture frames with holiday-themed artwork. No need then to pack, unpack, store, etc. as many things from season to season!
And now announcing the winner of my Shabby Apple Give Away: Congratulations to Ann from Moonbeams & Fireflies -- her name was chosen using Randomiser . Stop by her blog to congratulate her and browse (she was the inspiration for my Christmas Drawer(s)!)
Thanks to all who participated -- I hope to be doing another give away soon!
