The fall is my favorite time of the year, a time when I enjoy the real beauty of nature from the leaves turning awesome colors that take your breath away, to the beautiful warm colors of the mums in my garden. I really revel in decorating the house with warm colors of burnt orange, olive green, gold, burgundy, and chocolate brown. Of course, the scent of pumpkin or spice candles set the mood. The cool crisp evenings coupled with a cup of tea with lemon, a good book, a nice warm throw, and of course, my glasses really make fall evenings on a private deck ideal.
I really wanted to do something totally different this year so I decided to make a wreath for my front door that included the beautiful colors of fall. I brought the flowers, fall colored ribbon, and heavy-duty wire (my husband’s idea) to shape the wreath into a large circle. On a cool evening, I set up a workstation on my deck and began working on what I now call the masterpiece of all masterpieces. I turned on Watercolors and while I enjoyed the soothing music, I discovered a hidden talent. My masterpiece is now something that I can mark as accomplished on my Fabulous Fifties’ Bucket List. Who would have guessed? Wonders will never cease to amaze me!
I decided to create a Fabulously Fifty Memoirs album that will contain memoirs of my creations. I covered an album with beautiful print cloth and left over dried flowers. On the inside, each addition will include comments along with the date and a photograph.
