I love to decorate with treasures I've found. I used to decorate focusing on the upcoming holidays but after awhile I changed to focus on what season it is. So much more creative flow for me as well as being able to utilize items in my craft room. Most of my treasures were found at thrift stores, estates sales and of course my favorite flea market. I always watched my mother as she was creating things for herself or as gifts. I was never good at drawing as my sisters were but give me anything and my imagination would take off with ideas to create something out of it. As I was going through some photos I came across several pics of projects and I thought I would share them and their story. I have done this in previous years but never took a picture. It's always different from the previous year. It's a way of remembering what I've done. Here are a few of this harvest season decorations for 2019. In these pics I want to highlight a few items. The pumpkin patch hangings I purchased from the hospital gift shop where I worked. All on sale 75% off in other words pennies for me with my employee discount. The very large grapevine wreath was acquired at a craft warehouse that was closing. I was in heaven and blown away by the prices. I came home with a motherload of craft items. I had been wanting to fill the area beneath the window and I found at a thrift store for a couple bucks and some change each two wire flower trays . These were perfect. They were olive green and I sprayed painted them white to go with the white trim. I was going to add more then we had our first snow on Veteran's Day and it was cold and very windy. When it clears up I may continue but for now I'm satisfied with the outcome.
