Fall colors have arrived at last... and I must say they were worth waiting for. I snapped this shot on the way home from the market today.
I have seen this lady at the market before. But this morning when I saw the garlands hanging behind her I slapped myself on the forehead. Just like in the V-8 commercial.
Gourds, cinammon sticks, dried water lily pods, red beads, devils claw, milk weed pods, almonds, buckeyes, wine corks, dried corn husks, and sweet gum tree balls all came together to make the PERFECT fall garland for above my table.
I am still going to make felted acorns but as my sister and I often say, the only purpose for making a plan is to break the plan. I could see no reason this morning not to snap this garland up, bring it home, and settle in with my new over-the-table-decor. Which I am head-over-heels in love with. Plus... it is perfect for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Kwanzaa, New Years day, Three Kings day, and Groundhogs day.
