Photos on a Walk

Happy Fall, Y'All!
     I pass this happy message everyday as I return home from my wonderful and sometimes exhausting day. As I do, it energizes me and lifts my spirits. Autumn is a wonderful gift that if you live East of the Continental Divide, can enjoy every year. The visual joy of viewing landscapes doused in warm hues of orange, green, brown, and yellow "leave" me awestruck.

A versatile July 4th wreath

Each time I walk into a fabric store and saw that mesh fabric, it drew me in. Then I saw a beautiful one, made by my mother in law,  that inspired me to try.  After she showed me how, I continued. By switching out the flowers, etc the wreath can change. Choose fabric color to go with several holidays. For example a red mesh can double for Valentines Day, Christmas, Fourth of July, etc.altho the differences are subtle,  I made this one for Memorial Day, then switched the "doo dads" for July 4th.
You can find the how tos on you tube. It took one roll of mesh fabric, one metal 16" wreath , pipe cleaners to match the fabric, and fillers like flags, ribbon, pin wheels ...try it! 

Technical problem solving

Hi ! Please bear with me, my photos have completely disappeared and I am searching to restore them. I waste more time managing the site and less time blogging, no fun! Help!
