|Basket of my Zinnias|
Honestly, I trust God's design in which all of these things have a purpose, so I will give Him thanks for everyday, regardless of the chilly temperatures.
Having gotten that off my chest ;), I decided to cut some of my beautiful zinnias from the garden and use them in my fall door basket before the frost could claim them. Our flowers this year have been show stoppers and I hate to see them go...fresh flowers never fail to bring a casual serenity to any setting. These are actually starting to fade but they still look spectacular!

|Pine cone petals and faux pearls |
make these cute flowers
I dressed up a little basket that I had on hand by painting it white and then dry brushing some black over it to highlight the weaved pattern. I took apart a couple of pine cones and painted some of the pine cone petals black and left some natural. I used the hot glue gun to form flowers and then embellished them with faux pearls in the center. I hope it says Howdy and Welcome to all that come to my door!
