Hi, everyone! It sure seems like fall here in Michigan. We’ve had to cover our garden the last two nights and also had a fire in the woodstove already. The evenings and nights are downright chilly, back to sweatshirts and flannel pjs for me. I got out my totes of fall treasures and started adding a few touches around our home. I’m still waiting for my bittersweet to come that I ordered but I expect it soon. It was to be shipped around the first of September. Hopefully our bittersweet plants will produce next year. I have four of them, they are really growing and are about 4 years old. I thought I would share a few pictures of what I have added so far.
Here’s a 3 foot sunflower that I dried last year, I don’t have just the right container for it so I think I will end up adding some jute and hanging it on the door. I hope to dry some more this year. I also added a few to one of my beesting crocks.
Here are a couple of things I’ve added to my selling blog today. If you get a chance pop on over to see my new offerings.
A couple of shots of what’s still growing. Our sunflowers and gourds have done fantastic this year. I will have tons of gourds to decorate with and to dry for next year.
Here are a few things I have stitched, just waiting to be stained and framed.
Well, I hope my pictures didn’t bore you. I didn’t realize there were so many and I’m still decorating. Just a few more gourds to add here and there and then the bittersweet when it arrives. I still have to decorate outside yet but the pumpkins aren’t ready yet. I hope you are all having a great week. I’m so enjoying this fall weather and we have leaves turning already. Take good care!
til next time ~
