It's no secret that I love lanterns! It was the red Pier 1 lanterns, seen two years ago in their Christmas ad, that led us to the store Abby ended up working in. I may or may not have amassed a few other sets while she was still employed there :)
So when I got the call last Friday that my magazine photo shoot would now be for FALL, and not SPRING, the lanterns were my first go-to choice for fall decor. The spring decor got put away, the fall decorations came out, and now I'm almost good to go. I guess I ended up being the first blogger to decorate for spring, and the last to decorate for fall!
We received a box from Maurie's sister last week with some vintage items from their parents' estate. I really wanted a special place to honor these small treasures, so several ended up in their own sort of display case inside the lanterns.
Each lantern is unique, and different, and holds a special piece along with some seasonal leaves and berries. They were so much fun to put together! How amazing would it be to take a special item and create one of these for a meaningful holiday gift.
I'm not sure where they will end up, but I sure am enjoying seeing them stacked up in my kitchen until they find a more permanent home. For a week or two, anyway :)
