in the midst…

fall is here

1 Comment

i’ve been a bit down lately and it was wonderful to see a post by my dear friend jen (check out her amazing & effortless creativity at bits of envy) that completely inspired me to stop being sad & embrace fall!  first, i made leaves out of brown paper bags & different lace.  i glued the lace to the bags and then used a template to cut them out.

i used three different styles & colors of lace.  i really like the combinations of textures.

next, i made flowers out of burlap, fabric scraps, vintage buttons & broken vintage earrings…and glued it all together.

here it is, hanging on the front door.

then i decided to make a table runner out of the remaining burlap.  i used the rest of the lace leaves and vintage mason jars.  the lids made perfect candle holders.  now i am off to help a friend paint & hopefully find the perfect branches to put in the jars!  thank you jen!
