Change of Plan

When I finished this cute little squirrel cross stitch acorn pinkeep, I was happy enough to place it in a bowl with some scented wax tart melts.

I even went scavenging in the woods for some real acorns to add to the display.

But what was missing from my autumn decor was a fall wreath and I just happened to find one in a box needing to be used so voila! A new autumn wreath was born!

Of course I had to add some rusty red and orange leaves to it and now it hangs in my entryway, repurposed and plain for all to see!  Do you like it this way?

Thanks so much for coming by and I hope to hear from you!

Thanks too for all your kind thoughts for my little one who is now much better and more like her happy self!

Best wishes x
