Adding one more thought to my previous post . . .
In my efforts to simplify the seasonal decorating, I'm looking at nature's gifts in new ways.
This morning I gathered a few hydrangeas, beautyberries and zebra grass tassels.
I rather like the textural, autumnal feel it adds to the dining room hutch.
The gravy boat in the background is filled with pecans given to me by a co-worker. She found the nuts that had dropped all over her yard to be a nuisance. As much as I love pecans, I found the process of shelling them to be a bit of a nuisance. I do, however, love the looks of them in fall décor.
Best of all, when the season is over, I can toss it all.
No storage space in the attic required.
