A New Centerpiece

 I decided I needed a new centerpiece for my dining room table so I headed off to TJ Maxx to see what I could round up. I found this lantern in just the color I was searching for on a shelf of lamps. The little mossy rocks and the natural filler was on the shelf with all the fake flowers. I love shopping at TJMaxx as it is something like a hunting expedition and when I find something interesting I am so proud of myself.
 Aren't these mossy fake rocks totally cute? There was only one bag so I had to find something else to fill up the lantern. Luckily there was a bag of small earthy balls made of feathers, twig and bark on the same shelf. I had the bowl of tiny seed balls that was just gathering dust in my cupboard so I used the seed balls as filler too. It is good to have a Craft/Junk Room so I can pull out things and re-purpose them.
Here is the finished product...It really looks nice on the table and complements the painting on the wall as well as the distressed lamps I purchased for the buffet. It is true that once you change one thing in a room, it leads to more change! I really enjoy creating new things for my home. And I did not steal this one from Pinterest!!
