I love making a fall wreath. I adore walking in the woods and collecting beautiful things from nature. Pine cones and acorns are no exception. I also love to decorate my home with natural elements through the fall and winter holidays. So, I combined my love of the woods and created this perfect gathered fall wreath.
During the winter, I always chose a heftier project to carry me into spring. Sometimes it is knitting, crocheting or sewing; something that cannot be completed overnight. This year I chose quilting. I decided to ask my Facebook fans if they were interested in a making a quilt with me at the same time. They responded with an overwhelming YES!
It is hard to believe that Easter is right around the corner. The chickens have begun to resume their regular laying patterns. Yesterday, I discovered that all the hens had laid an egg. The egg cartons are filling fast and my fridge is abundant with eggs. Earlier this week, I found myself making a couple of quiches for dinner. Sometimes, I feed the empty eggshells back to the hens, other times I crush them and sprinkle them in the garden to help add nutrients to the soil and deter slugs. But during springtime, you can find me forcing miniature spring bulbs like Grape Hyacinth, Tete-A-Tete Daffodils and Crocus in the chicken’s beautiful eggshells. To learn more about the “how-tos” of this project head on over to HGTV Gardens, where I have shared all the instructions.
