Autumn’s Palette

A few years ago a friend of mine gave me a big bag of pinecones. I have been using them to fill a jar at Christmas time since pinecones and poinsettias are my usual decorating theme in December. This year I thought I would change it up by using some of the pinecones as Autumn decor. I have some really pretty, fine, Martha Stewart glitter and glittering glue that I used to add some sparkle to my plain jane bag of pinecones. I’ve glittered a few and I am loving the way it looks!

Recipe for friendship


Today I had every intention of making my first two pages for the purse project…but as you can see, I found some cute paper in my stash that made me change direction. The outside of my plastic purse got embellished today, so the pages will have to wait until tomorrow night. In the meantime, I found this recipe that is worth sharing. Have a great week!
