Fall Nature Vignette

I wasn't even sure if I was going
to do any outdoor decorating this year.
But, the weather was beautiful
and I couldn't resist the call of the outdoors.

Before I knew it I was snipping a bit from here
and a bit from there and putting it all together
to make a natural fall arrangement.

I used some dry strawflowers
from a flowerbed I cleaned out,
some dried weeds and some fall branches.

I added the driftwood from our spring holiday
at the ocean for interest.

A simple fall arrangement
made from things around the yard,
and it didn't cost me a penny!

 ~Finding the amazing in the simple~
