One does not need to spend a lot of money to have seasonal decorations; however one needs to keep an eye out for off-season or yard/thrift bargains and a vision for how it can be used. The pleasure of The Hunt is as fun (or more!) as setting a vignette up!
The cupboard was five dollars and has been sitting here for at least five summers. This summer I dragged it through the laundry into the back of the house for a garden tour and hated it there and missed it in the front!
Now it sits in its rightful place under the eaves by the front door to welcome our guests once again!
