Anyone else have Fall fever? I hate the heat y’all! It’s one of the main reasons we will never (fingers crossed) live in Florida again. Even though I still live in the South, I’m now in an area that has actual seasons and I love it!
When we were on vacation in the mountains a few weeks ago I scored a couple of cool holders made out of real trees. However, you can’t really use them as real vases with water in them so what to do?
I felt like it was a bit early to put the Fall wreath on the door so perhaps a Summer/Fall compromise is in order? Yep, that’s where the dried flowers idea came in!
Here’s where we’re going to take a small tangent and talk about lavender for a moment…I’ve been on the lookout for dried lavender for a while. Our Michael’s used to have it but no more. I would love to buy it locally but the one farm I found couldn’t sell me a large amount of dried buds (I’d really like to have a bin of them for the barn sale I’m participating in in a few weeks). So what happened this morning? I went grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s and there it was – bundles of dried lavender! Man I love Trader Joe’s…
So here we are back trying to figure out how I want to fill the wood containers I purchased. I ended up finding some dried flowers at Michaels and combined it with the lavender…
What do you think?
