With the first snow fall right around the corner, literally, the zinnias that were in my garden got clipped. Happy go lucky Mr. Grasshopper was hanging on for dear life to one of the flowers. It wasn't until my surprise when I started to trim the flower for the vase that I noticed him. There was a bit of a scramble to get him out the door before he hopped away or Buster decided he was a tasty snack. I told you he was lucky.
Flowers on the kitchen windowsill always make you smile. They don't have to be purchased at some fancy florist or perfect. The best are small clovers picked from the kids or weather beaten flowers from the garden. We have a small collection of leaves hanging around for Damien's school project, along with Odyn's rock collection, and Aries decided to pick some wheat looking grass along with some pine cones the other day. It all sounds like a fine looking wreath for our door to me :).
I didn't use a pattern to sew it up - just decided to clip, cut, and sew it. Surprisingly my measurements seem to be just right - a little high on the sides but more than likely the chilly night air will be a factor. Dorothy had to wear tights sometime right?!
