Hi! How was your week? We are really working on finding our pace over here. Ever since baby six was born my head has felt like it’s going to explode with SO many creative ideas. So while the ideas are in abundance.. time is not. Though my darlen’ baby IS by my side and that is what TRULY matters!
I think perhaps all the ideas are coming from sitting so still (bow-bowing baby). I frantically scribble in my idea book and long for some handwork to keep my twitching hands busy.
I think I might have found it! Sewing apples!!
This is a fun and simple project. I love decorating with natural elements! If they are handmade, antique, or vintage then that is even better!
I dried the apples that we picked from the woods last weekend. They are tiny but yummy and organic! The ones left over I will save for winter to add to our granola.The hydrangeas were dried from the garden. They are puny which makes ‘em perfect for this! Love their sparseness and laciness and how the light shines through!
And my attempt at being healthy….. crust free and sugar free pumpkin pie. I’ll confess it tasted a bit squashish but darn good none-the-less. This is NOT the time of year to try to lose the spare tire(s) left over from baby-birthen’ (but then again… probably no time is!!) And to top it off my sister Loretta has started a FOOD BLOG – A Finn in the Kitchen. She is an awesome cook and baker!! You should check it out!
And when you’re done with that, go find some apples to sew.
Here’s what was hanging in my window. (you can find the tutorial here)….. I am really trying to practice ‘out with the old in with the new’… so I will be giving this handmade garland away to the very next person to purchase the $2 digital download of the Fall Homebound Magazine!
