Shop til You Drop!

Tomorrow is Small Business
Saturday. Tis the shopping
season and who wouldn't enjoy
a gift from a small business.
Take time to shop from Etsy
or your local downtown stores.
Usually these places have
those "one of a kind" gifts that
the bigger stores do not. It is
also a great way to benefit
your community.
Happy Shopping! Enjoy.

A Seasonal/Thanksgiving Wreath

Here is a cute wreath to make.
It could be made for Fall,Thanks-
giving or anytime.
This was in the November 2012
Family Fun. They called it a
Wreath of Plenty.
~Start with a 12" styrofoam
wreath form.
~Wrap strips of fall fabric
around the form, securing
the fabric with ball-head
straight pins.
~Cut leaf shapes from card
stock, crease each leaf in
half for dimension. Attach
leaves to wreath with more
ball-head pins.
~To hang, add a loop of fabric
to the back of the wreath.
~Use light-colored gel pens
on dark paper.
The wreath in the magazine
had a "fun theme" to it.
Some of the things written
on the leaves were: family,
chocolate, parades, and ice
Other theme ideas: Fall,Thanks-
giving and Family. You could
combine all three too.
For Thanksgiving, you could have
the wreath form ready and each
guest could pick a leaf and
write something on it and then
attach it to the wreath. When
complete, you could hang it

Picture Perfect

Saturday was a beautifully
warm Fall day. This is a
tree that is at the top of
our street. Still in it's Fall

Saturday sunset #1.
Before the rain came in
that night.

Sunset pic #2. Same
evening-higher in the
sky. I find it interesting
that this one came out
more blue.

Sunset pic #3. This one
was taken a little to the
left of the others.
They remind me of water-
color pictures.
