~Seeing~

The brilliant colors of gourds and mini pumpkins, and candlelight in this centerpiece I put together today.

To make your own: pile mini pumpkins and gourds in a large, clear hurricane lantern. In the winter I use vintage glass Christmas tree bulbs, in the summer I use lemons, and in the spring watercolored Easter eggs and/or little bird’s nests that i’ve found over the years.

~Knowing~

That I love being a mom and celebrating fun days with my kids!

What did you do today?

    Love the clear hurricane centerpiece idea. I’ve seen this in so many ways over the years and always think I should do it too. Haven’t bothered since there’s not a room in my house that’s safe enough for glass and kids. LOL Maybe someday….
