Fall Crafting: Make a Coastal Hydrangea Wreath

I love living by the sea and keeping gardens, but living in New England I find my warm days drifting away. One of my favorite things to do on crisp fall days is to collect beautiful inspirational things from the gardens and make wreaths, like this acorn one. This past spring, we planted almost thirty hydrangeas on the property. The hydrangea blooms have now faded to muted greens, browns, pinks and maroons. They are lovely in their own way. I snipped a few from the bushes that were just about dried and brought them inside to create a wonderful coastal hydrangea wreath for the fall season.

A Simple Bouquet

 Today, I am sharing a lovely bouquet that my friend, C.L. Fornari, made during a recent garden party that I attended at her home. It’s simple-elegant and country garden all at the same time. It’s important as bloggers that sometimes we take breaks. It’s good now and then to sit back and enjoy those and all of the experiences around us.
