Market Cart - Art!

Hi everyone!

Just like last week, I am writing this post while watching the Green Bay Packers game. One more win and they will be headed for the Super Bowl! Of course, they have four quarters to play....So I am doing a little blogging to r-e-l-a-x! 

Last year I found an old, wheeled market cart at an antique mall. It spoke to me, but at the same time I just couldn't find a place in our house where it looked good. It sat in a corner, lonely and collecting dust.

One day I thought, "why not hang it on the wall?" And so I did just that (actually, Mr. Bluebird did just that, lol)!

You can see a glimpse of my coffee table. I am keeping it simple right now, enjoying the "after Christmas clean." The runner is a $5.00 scarf from Wal-Mart and the iron & glass cylinder candle holder is from Pottery Barn. Cheap & pricy: a beautiful combination.

This is a very grainy picture, but here is a closer view of the cart. (I may have a fancy schmancy camera now, but I am still learning how to use it!)

On the side table vignette, I put a potted plant in the Blue Willow creamer I first told you about here. I also mixed in a very sweet copper mold I picked up for $2.50 on New Year's Day.

I just think the little horse is adorable and adds a jolt of metal to the display.

The green lamp with burlap shade was a Home Goods find several years ago.

I really like how this part of the room is looking right now, and more than happy that I found a spot for my market cart...finally!

Now, about those Packers! Hoping for a win today. Any Packers fans out there?
