Anyway, perhaps with the loving spirit of Thanksgiving soon upon us, they both decided to work in tangent today, and for that, I am very thankful! ;)
I always like to collect some of the very most beautiful leaves to press, dry & preserve for future use in decorations, crafts and art...it IS my very favorite time of year, after all!
And this photo was taken pretty early in the season...at my most recent bus ride last week, the leaves were about 5 inches deep! Yep, I brought home about 2 dozen, which dried nicely in a giant 6 inch thick old disctionary I have!
And bonus! It was created without spending any $, because I either already had everything on hand or it was *free*...thanks to Mother Nature!
Here is my little holiday pretty for today!
As simple as it was to make, I think it looks just lovely and will be hanging it every fall, with fond memories of an enjoyable project that came out just how I imagined & hoped it would! (as well as remind me how very much I have to be thankful for, EVERYday!)
It doesn't really take much to keep me...
Happy Me-Laurie Z!
