Debbie Doo's Magazine Challenge

I'm so happy to be participating in Debbiedoo's Magazine Challenge linky party.  Basically, you have to re-create something you saw in a magazine.  My little project was inspired by the July issue of Country Living - hand's down one of my all time favorite magazines!  Here is/was my inspiration:
And here's my version!
Keep in mind the magazine's piece was showing ideas for a wedding or party.  Mine is just for our everyday use and features lots of sweet treats, and vintage estate and garage sale finds.  The vintage popcorn and striped bags are from Etsy.  The vintage ice cream cups are too.  The straws are America's Choice - our supermarket's generic brand.  Don't they fit perfectly?
Of course I took these pictures a few days ago.  Most of the candy is gone thanks to my three men.  Oh okay, and me too!
Needless to say, it's been a big hit with the kids!

HOW FUN!!~ I have the very same scale in red. I have to say I think your pictorial is better. I am telling you there are so many creative cats out here, I just knew this would be fun. Thanks so much for joining me.

I love yours even more than the inspiration picture! I wish that I had known about that party idea. It's a great one. What a great way to get inspiration! I think I want to just try it on my own.

That looks like it was fun to put together! Are those MaryJanes? God, I haven't seen those in years. Nice that you got to use some of your finds.

Very adorable shoot. I love the scale, and the maryjane candies look so yummy in that jar. This is a fun game isn't it? I am having a blast visiting.

This is so pretty! Caught my eye right away. I agree with the others. This looks BETTER than the magazine and looks like it should be IN one! :)

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

I saw that same photo in my magazine and I thought it was a great idea for children (or the young at heart) at a wedding. I really like your ideas, especially the candy jar on the scale.

CailinMarie said...

love it! the scale and whatever it is that is holding the straws (okay so it looks like a soda shop "straw holder" is there such a thing?) totally make it.
thanks for stopping by & commenting!

CailinMarie said...
