Thanksgiving touches around the apartment are finished, at last. I had posted previously here about some craft projects I had in mind, and sat down Wednesday night to work on the paper lanterns. They looked so easy and cute. Well, they weren't. I made three mediocre paper lanterns before giving up on them. In the blog I saw them on, they were round and lovely. Mine refused to stay round, and all of the strips hung on one side. I might have another go at it, but for now, paper lanterns are out.
This is what I have done, some simple touches to remind us of Thanksgiving for the next few weeks. Emphasis on simple; I've been busy!
|centerpiece= collected these acorns with my friend's four year old niece, plopped half in a ball jar, and the other half in one of my pots. Cut out a circle of fabric to add an extra layer of interest. Done.|
|Notice something different?|
Bittersweet on the wall.
I even convinced Will to let me put something decorative near his beloved xbox.
So there you have it, the end of fall in apartment 3D. As much as I try to get myself to slow down and just enjoy this time of year, I'm getting so excited about Christmas!
