~*A Horse Feedsack*~

This morning my husband dropped off our youngest son at baseball practice and as he drove out of the neighborhood, he saw a garage sale going on a few streets away from us. Being the good husband that he his (all of my training has certainly paid off), he called me and told me about it and said I should go. Intrigued, I got dressed and went to the sale. The first thing that caught my eye was a vintage, horse feed sack, and no, I don't have horses just in case you were wondering, haha. I liked the the leather and heavy canvas combination, was in mint condition and for $3.00, I had to have it.

I came home and knew exactly what I was going to do with it.

I had some left over autumn flower stems

and decided to create a front door decoration, kinda like a wreath but without the wreath, make sense?

This is what I put together

This cutie pie hangs on the outside of our front door, so easy to do and I am pleased with the results

I had to tuck a little scarecrow in between the flowers

This is the first time we have decorated the front door for autumn, I guess I just needed the perfect inspiration to do just that, a vintage horse feedsack!

Make it a great weekend, Janice
