I'm joining in with Debbie over at DebbieDoo's Blogging and Blabbing for her second copy cat challenge. I participated in her first challenge and it was so much fun! There are some really talented copy cats out there in blogland!!
For my copy, I chose an image from the September 2011 issue of Country Sampler:
I'm copying the centerpiece on the coffee table. It's kind of hard to see the details in the above picture so here's a closer view:
And here's my version:
Everything I used in my copy cat version came from the Dollar Tree. I purchased a plastic serving tray that I spray painted black, three plain white coffee mugs, three bags of candy corn, two different fall leaf stems that I tore apart, and a package of pumpkin scented tealight candles. I already had the lace doily I used to ground my display and I used a black paint pen that I had in my stash to write my letters on the mugs. I placed it on my Grandma's sewing machine in front of my fall topiary. I think it looks perfect there! And the best part of this little vignette is that it only took me about 10 minutes (not counting drying time for the spray paint) to put this together! Simple and quick ~ ya just can't get any better than that!
So, what do y'all think? Am I a good copy cat or what?? Please be sure to click here to check out Debbie's blog to visit all the other great copy cats there. I love these parties! They are so much fun and it's a great way to use your imagination to create your own little vignette or display.
I'm also linking up with some of the fabulous blog parties listed on my sidebar as well as at Savvy Southern Style and over at Grits and Glamour's Keep It Simple party. Please be sure to check them out!
Until next time. . .
