K.I.S.S. Side Table


I kept changing this table, adding and subtracting but somehow it was not working for me. Then I realized I was over doing it. For some reason I'm in the mood to have everything pared down and simple. It's been a year full of turmoil for my family so maybe that explains my desire to Keep It Simple Stupid or K.I.S.S. So after a lot of subtracting I came up with this;




I just put little white pumpkins on a bed of moss on top of my mercury glass candlesticks, added some books bound with webbing and  jute, added a couple more pumpkins and called it done.


It's fall without the traditional colors, but it's the best of both worlds to me. The whites and silvers that I love and a soothing palette.



Who knows, by the time Christmas rolls around I might be in the mood to decorate every surface in the house, but for know I'm done. I'll be adding some Halloween touches soon.  My guess is things wont change a whole lot. Don't hold me to that though, after all it's a woman's prerogative to change her mind LOL. I'll be  joining these fun  parties this week,
