An Old Lantern

I had an old lantern that I used on the deck at  Halloween. Usually, a burning candle was inside and I enjoyed it for several years at Halloween time. Since it was getting rusty and needed a little attention, I pray painted the lantern and gave it a revived look, brought it inside and gave it a new resting  spot on by sideboard in our entry. Now the lantern has a birds nest with Fall flowers, leaves, and berries. A little bird has found its way to the nest also.

Happy Sunday Favorites! Your old lantern with the star designs gives it an almost folk-life feel or country. The cranberries definitely say Fall.
