I hate to be the barer of bad news, but not everyone's Fall season starts with a specific date on a calendar! Where we live, the air conditioner runs on full blast well past Christmas. Our Fall weather usually hits in January and our Winter in February. March is always if-y and by April, it's hot! Oh the joys of living in the Deep South. (However, I must add here that I am Southern by the grace of God... *wink*)
Anyway, we have been seeing all these beautiful fall crafts and activities on blogs and have found it really hard to get into the Fall spirit. Today we decided to take matters into our own hands, literally!
First thing this morning we grabbed some paint brushes and went outside to pick an unsuspecting tree. We painted some red, orange and yellow leaves. What do you think? I believe the tree looks satisfied with its new look. Sort of a mix between: I can do Fall and These colors don't make me look fat!
After creating a Fall fashion show in our front yard, we made an appearance at Nonnie's. It was decided that she too needed a touch of Fall spirit. We gathered up some FALLen leaves from her yard and made some mini trees. We simply glued our collected leaves to a piece of thin cardboard cut into the shape of a tree canopy and attached it to a toilet paper tube by slitting each side of the tube. These leaves received the royal treatment and are the envy of ALL their peers. Who wouldn't love them? They're fabulous!
It may still be hot here but, with some imagination, we are experiencing Fall.
