My weekend home project–Autumn Seasonal Table

It’s been quiet around here since I posted yesterday about designing and organizing with your values in mind. I hope that means everybody’s been having a full, happy and restful weekend. Yesterday my mother-in-law took our kids all day, which gave us the chance to take care of some work around the house and host my brother John and sister-in-law Jenna for an adults-only steak dinner.

One of the projects I worked on: I created a seasonal table, something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. It went from this:

to this

in an hour or so, altogether. I can’t believe what a difference it makes in the room–and I love bringing nature indoors.

I’ll have more (and better-exposed) pics tomorrow and more information about the process of creating it.

What did you do this weekend? I hope it involved steaks, too. Or at least a good meal.
