Hi guys! I'm feelin' a bit zippy today... Thought I'd work on a little project that has been stewing in my brain a bit... It's time to change the door wreath's clothes... from the above 'Summer do' to something more seasonal.
So, I picked up a few things to see what magic I could do... (My pictures are out of order, with the technical difficulties I have had lately...thought it best to leeavve it alone...LOL!) I decided not to use the feathers.... but, the leaves I picked up at Wally Mart for $8.96 and the satin ribbon for $2.00. I just love satin ribbon lately! It adds just the right look as far as I'm concerned, not too flashy but defiantly classy.
But, not all of us can afford Pottery Barn all the time... I found this wreath amongst the pages...I think it is soo pretty. I love to purchase one, but me and my ever evolving tastes... I just can't bring myself to pay $38.00 for a seasonal decoration. So, I thought, how can I create this look for less...
I hope you can see on the above page, the wreaths are soo thin! One more thing to say "Nope, not 38.00 for that!" But I just love the colors and the look! What do you think? How do you guys dress your doors for fall?
This really isn't a very clear picture... the wind was actually blowing hard.. but the wreath turned out very pretty and color full. I added a grapevine wreath behind the leaves to give it some depth.
#1 had an orthodontist appointment today, so mom needed some good reading material..I toted a few books with me... you know, I'm in a rut with cooking lately. This book is awesome! I know it says 'Summer' on the Vineyard, but I found a recipe for split pea soup. With the crisp temps. and changing leaves, comfort food is in order and I think this soup will fill the bill... what are your comfort foods?
