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!
