Fall Flower Pot - Another Frugal Fall Decoration

I've got another Frugal Fall Decoration for you!  This little lovely cost me $7.  That's an awesome deal for such a pretty center piece, don't you think?
We were yard sale-ing one day and I spotted this big ole black spotted enamel coffee pot from the truck.  I made a bee line for it!  I grabbed it and the gentleman said, "Oh I'm sorry but that is already taken".  My heart sunk a little.
The lady running the yard sale was talking to a friend who had stopped by to visit and that friend said, "They gifted the pot to me and I see how much you love it, so you take it." Really?  Yes, that really happened!  I was reluctant to accept it at first, but she insisted and then asked me to "pay it forward".  I'm still looking for just the right thing to pay it forward with.  I'll keep you posted!
I found the pretty Fall flowers at the Dollar Tree for $1 per bundle.  They are of very nice quality for such a frugal price.  The old speckled pot will be adorning our dinner table for all to see.  I love it and just can't stop looking at it!  It's the little things.

It doesn't have to be done all at once.  It is a slow process in the works! C-ya next time!
