Change of Seasons


As the days of summer come to an end, I have been thinking about ways to change displays at the store to fall. I thought that it would be fun to create a large display of vintage paper leaves over the counter.
Just when I started to look for shapes, my friend Ann came into the store with this great book she wanted to sell. I couldn't believe my luck...it was a vintage book on leaves!


Here are a few I made last night.

I love this new burlap ribbon that come in today.

I simply made a bow and added it to a pillow...a quick change for fall!

Oh I like the idea of the paper leaves from old books etc. Can I steal that one.
The ribbon is cool too, sounds like I need another trip to
Joyworks soon, tee hee!

I'm a little partial to the "postal pillow." Can you tell me more about it? And, by the way, I have my mom's Sunbeam mixer and bowls that I have thought about putting on the "plant" shelf above my kitchen...along with a few dusty vintage bottles, Roseville pieces, and a couple of goose pieces (a ring of geese making a bowl, and I think the the other is for cut flowers).
