I realized the other day that I needed something for the front door. I wanted to make a seasonal wreath, in autumn colors. When I found what I thought was a bolt of rust colored faux suede, I brought it upstairs and started to cut strips from it. Hmmm, this isn't rust color at all, it is pink. Oh, well...that's what color the wreath will be.
You can't have pink without black, so I added some black and tan "bows" and found a country print and started cutting strips from it. All in all, it is just short pieces of fabric tied around a fabric wrapped coat hanger. It actually looks pretty good as is, but it's not very seasonal.
I had attempted to hand carve a turkey stamp last night and since I wasn't that happy with it , I thought I would see what was available at the store. So, I went to Michael's today, to use my coupon and get something Thanksgiving related. They had one end rack with some ratty looking straw turkeys and several goofy eyed pilgrims on it and when I asked where the rest of Thanksgiving was, I was told that Michael's goes straight from Halloween to Christmas.
Where are the cornucopias, and the turkey decorations and the.... I don't know, the Norman Rockwell type Thanksgiving things? Are they only in my memory? or at another store? Just wondering.
Just my thoughts for today.
