Autumn Wreath


Summoning my inner Elizabeth Goodweather for a spot of wreath-making. It's been a while since I did this and this is my first time using magnolia leaves. 


The finished product was a bit clunkier than I'd like -- I should have stuck to using the smaller leaves. 


But I had fun making it with the glass gem corn I grew a few years ago and greenery from trees I planted about thirty years ago.


Note: The pumpkin is store bought. I learned my lesson there. . .

I think it's lovely Vicki. Nothing like a wreath you've made yourself. Our local store is full of pumpkins too this week but I'm holding off for a few more days! Last year I bought a metal one, which is a lot less trouble, I have to say....

Oh how sweet, and sure to make you smile (as well as visitors) whenever you pass through your door.

Is there no end to your talent? This is awesome Mrs. Lane, xx

Lovely wreath. And even more special since the contents came from your own hands over the years. I don't think it's too chunky at all.

I love it when you start posting cozy, comforting scenes for this time of year - helps when facing the inevitable dark and rain.
