So what’s outside your own front door? Are there wild flowers down the street? Did you know that gathered in a bouquet, even weeds can be beautiful? Or perhaps cut a couple branches off a leafy deciduous tree or bush. I love the lacy chartreuse color of the leaves on our honey locust tree and these branches often find their way into a bouquet to brighten our home! And don’t forget the natural calming beauty of nuts and berries and pine cones. Even if you live in a city apartment, a stroll to a nearby park can still produce a beautiful bouquet . . . just make sure you are allowed to pick flowers if it is a public park . . . usually anything that has fallen to the ground, such as pine cones and nuts, are free for the taking, as well as fallen branches. In a pinch, a dandelion bouquet can be cheerful and certainly easy to find!
Hugs & Blessings,
Tonight I just got home after setting up for our latest show, “Pickin’ Christmas”, which will take place at the Greyhound Event Center in Post Falls Idaho this coming weekend, December 3 and 4. We have the spots all marked off, the placement figured out for everything from decor to ticket booths . . . and my booth is done. I am pleased with how simple it came together and how nice I think it will display. But still tonight finds me anxious and stressed.
