I was very excited to see that Misi is hosting the Tuesday Display Chain again this Fall. I have so much fun with them and get to visit with many new and old blogging friends. It's a good chance for me to stretch my creativity. If you want to join, go on over to her blog and sign in.
This weeks theme is "A New Appreciation". I get to post a picture of a display in the way that I interpret this.
There are many new appreciations that come with the season. But how do you build a display around the thankfulness for cooler weather, or the fact that you don't have to water your garden anymore? (It was getting a bit tiring)!!
But, as I looked around at the decor in some of my displays, I began to appreciate the free gifts that Mother Nature offers me to put in my home this time of year.
Earlier in September, I picked some berries from a tree in the park and strung them. Then I gathered up some of my dried sunflower heads and hung them in a row. Pine cones are always easy to find. If you go hiking up on the Mnts. East of here you may find Putka Pods to dry. They look like little tiny cute pumpkins. I found mine at Michael's though.
I really wanted to make some cinnamon smelling bowl fillers for my entryway. I found a few small pine cones, shucked the corn that I grew, and gathered some dried berries. Then I made a concoction of cinnamon oil and soaked them in it. A trip in the oven dried it all up good.
We have three tall grass plants outside our side window. I thought that some of the taller stems would look lovely inside for the season. A few snips later they became a part of my home decor.
Welcome to my entry way. I hope that you find some fall pleasure here. I know that I do.
Thanks for visiting my little piece of the world. I appreciate all your wonderful comments and the friendship you have to offer. Have a great day.
