The anticipation is growing here in the Northeast, as we await the arrival of Hurricane Sandy. Such a pleasant name for something which can bring devastation. Everyone up and down the coast has stocked up on water, batteries, generators, non-perishable food, propane, pet supplies, medication. I am usually not impressed by the weather reports of impending disaster. It's quite often wrong or over-rated. This time, I am listening and preparing.
While we still have some leaves on the trees, I took a little walk and got some gorgeous Fall inspiration. Take a look at what I found:
These oats are so serene with their subdued colors. They make nice additions to dried flower arrangements. What do I love about them? I like their flatness. Really...you should see them up close...they are not like farmer's oats.
I hope this close-up allows you to see what they're like.
This blog is about crafts as well as other things of beauty. I have a cute pumpkin craft that my mom made for me the other week. I had to share because it is so darned pretty and easy to make.
