A Touch of Fall before Christmas

Dia Duit, since coming home, I have had a yen to decorate the entranceway with fall colours which will be shortlived with Christmas fast approaching.

To enable me to make the wreath, I had been searching for twig wreaths. They were near impossible to find. Sometimes I am short on patience and went to the local flower farm. The young lass, suggested making one myself, as they have not had twig wreaths for a couple of years now. Luckily one piece of foliage was left. As I was leaving, I spied the green berry wreath, and purchased it as well.

The two small quilts, I purchased at the Lancaster Central Market. There were three Amish inspired stalls, the first stall I approached had the sweetest sweetest lady, named Anna, where I made my purchases.

Last but not least, when I was on camp, my dear friend Ness gave me as a gift the beautiful hand painted Welcome canvas. To add a touch of blue, when we were at the Plain and Fancy Farm for lunch, in Lancaster, I purchased two babies bonnets, to add to the prairie bonnets I had made. slãn, o'faigh
