Chicken feed trough!

 I went out on a treasure hunt today!  I was determined to find the perfect center piece for the 12 foot farm house table that I could incorporate into Christmas decorations.  I came home with this 5 foot, rusty metal,  farm chicken feed trough!

 I have filled it with poinsettias, english ivy, and Christmas tree scraps.  I intertwined a grapevine type garland.  I will probably add some moss to cover up the tops of the pots, or maybe a little strategically place burlap will do.  I love the natural feel, especially since this table is on my sunporch.
Mamma sent me three more Spode plates this week so that I could could set the table for twelve.  I only had 10 plates that I got as wedding presents 21 years ago.  Thanks Mamma!

The Sleeping Poet in Charlotte, NC is a great place for treasure hunting!
