Late summer you say? Well our kiddos go back to school one month from now so I count it late summer and it was time to take down the patriotic regalia, so what to do?
I have to brag on my Dollar Tree decor. Everything in this bowl came from Dollar Tree except for the old flower jar and the cotton bolls. I found the rustic jar for $6 at Hobby Lobby's end of the summer clearance. I also purchased the cotton bolls there and I think I used my coupon for that purchase. Dollar Tree has really upped their quality on flower stems and floral decoratives. The small bowl has sunflowers on the side of it in keeping with my theme. This will do until it is time for fall.
Some Dollar Trees have cotton bolls but as a Southern girl they just did not meet the mark for me. I had to get some more authentic ones at Hobby Lobby. But the berries and the other decoratives would have cost much more at Hobby Lobby.
I did go to several Dollar Trees to find all the florals. And this rustic jug is one I can use for all seasons. Be sure and check out the end of summer sale...there were some great buys to be had there.
