Corn~U~Copia...Yeah Baby!

Well, I am trying to post daily...but as the season continues on it's merry way I tend to get pretty scattered...and although it makes me a bit nuts and unorganized...I am filled with heavy doses of creativity and spirit and I wouldn't have it any other way. I will, however, try to gather pictures of my adventures this week and share with you all till the cows come home...and then some.

So as Thanksgiving grows closer...about 18 days to go or so...let me show you one of my turkey day, harvest~y, November loving decorations...a Cornucopia...and you too can make one for yourself and enjoy every horn~of~plenty minute of it.


Pop into a craft store and pick up a wicker cornucopia...
and stuff that puppy with a bunch of newspaper...

And then the fun ensues...start layering nuts and pine cones
and dried fruit and bits of old potpourri and do~dads of this and
that and the other thing...
A closer look...
This and that....
And the other thing...

I slipped in some magnolia leaves...just a thought, but

you could add paper or little turkeys or bits of ribbon or lace...

you are only limited by your imagination....remember the fun

of the juxtaposition factor...

And...Cha, Cha, Cha!

Thanksgiving delight....this old boy is about

five years old and every fall I just refresh it a tad...

Go nuts and happy corn~u~copia~ing to you!

Oh Ramona that is a GORGEOUS cornucopia! I have never thought of making one myself but it does not look too hard. I LOVE the pinecones and the nuts in yours. Another fabulous project!!

My mother made me a cornucopia about 20 years ago, and I get it out every year and add to it and set it on my table....love yours with all the "pretties"!

That is beautiful, Ramona! You are so talented!

I love, too, how you just put that pumpkin and pinecones and the chair and voila, art! How do you do that? If I did that, it would look like, well, a pumpkin and some pinecones on a chair, lol ;)

Heart all you do,
Bella
