Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth. Thomas S Monson

Enamelware Display

I saw a cute little 3 tiered bowl thing at Everyday Treasures a few weeks ago and thought it looked like a fun fall accessory.   So, being the great copier that I am, I thought I should make one for myself.
I love enamelware and have a few pieces that I've collected over the years.
I found three bowls in graduated sizes and they worked perfectly for this project.
The posts in between the bowls are wooden candle sticks that I found at a garage sale but I've seen them at Hobby Lobby.

All of the pieces were glued together with epoxy.
I didn't use any screws but it would be easy enough to do if you wanted to make sure it held together.

Kinda chipped and a little rusty and I think perfect for a fall display.

Are you on Instagram?
I am.

So much easier than blogging.

So much faster and no stress.
Kinder and gentler than Facebook.

One picture and a caption.
Then some likes and comments.

And then you're done.
Kinda addicting.

Kinda fun.

Are you on Instagram too?

If you are will you let me follow you?
You can follow me if you'd like.

Hope we can be Instagram friends.
