Last week I got a text from a recently returned home friend who wanted to get together to make a fall-themed wreath for their house. Of course I jumped at the chance because not only is she my "almost-twin" (share a lot of similar life events) and former co-worker, she was was always my biggest cheerleader when Prince Charming was gone for a year, whether it was new mom moments or project ideas and she was a great confidant. Her family returned from their great northern adventure and I am quite excited to spend time with her again.
Today we met up at a local craft store to purchase supplies for this upcoming project and of course, we got delightfully distracted. Along the exploration, I picked up some fall-colored faux roses for some sort of project and figured out what to do with them before we left the store.
I'd set aside two Texas Tea bottles at home, I hadn't taken them out to recycling yet and was debating it since they had this really beautiful raised State of Texas on the bottle.
Once I got home, I went searching in my box of ribbons and found a spool of burlap and a piece of lace. I also found a skeleton key charm that I'd had from a previous project. So while the meatloaf cooked in the oven, I decorated the jar, then trimmed the roses down (there was large and small flowers as well as a bud on each stem).
A mere 20 minutes later, I had a new Fall decoration! Surprisingly enough, my husband did not find it strange that I asked for his wire cutters while making dinner. I never get tired of these off the cuff projects!
Until our next cup of tea ...
