“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.” ~Stanley Horowitz
Sunday was the most perfect fall day. It was the perfect temperature. The perfect amount of sunshine. It was absolutely inspiring. I love Autumn. Have I said this already?? This was the sight that greeted my eyes when I went out to check on the chickens.
I had to take a closer look.
Spectacular! God really is the most incredible artist.
So this is what you find when you haven’t checked for eggs in 3 days:
Yes, I know. I am a bad chicken mommy. I liberated the eggs and let the girls and Rudy roam free for a bit as well. I think they forgave me the neglect.
The Red House on the Hill looks delightful in the Fall as well. I think it’s that particular color of red that blends so nicely with the autumn hues.
So this beautiful fall day inspired me. To be crafty. Now one thing I love in the fall and winter are wreaths of the front door. Like this one:
You can purchase this one at Target for the lovely price of $79.99. Since I cannot justify nor afford paying that for a grouping of dead leaves and grasses to hang on my door, I came up with a better plan. (I would like to take this opportunity to interject that I have absolutely NO clue why my writing suddenly turned blue and underlined, but as I haven’t the faintest clue how to get it back to black and NOT underlined, I beg your pardon. Back to our scheduled program…)
So I got on my warm down vest threw the ol’ hat on:
First paying my respects to Mr. Squirrelly McS…..
I got into the ol’ Van…..
After I had grabbed my co-horts in crime, of course…….
We set off for this place:
10 bucks later + a little crafty imagination = the finished product:
That’s right. I made this one myself. Now granted, its not as fancy pants as the other one from Target…. or elaborate. But then, I never was a really showy sort of gal. Not to mention I have that extra $69.99 left in my pocket for more important things like food and gas and books! And don’t you just think it warms up my little front door nicely??
I thought so too!
