    I must agree that these leaves are simply lovely. Where did you get them by the way? They look so freshly picked outside your house or at the backyard. But since it's fall it wouldn't be hard to get some nice ones in the neighborhood.

      Hi James! My little girl and I gathered the leaves outside our home in the Mark Twain National Forest. :)

    So pretty- certainly craving some fall around here. We have the never ending summer- it just won't go away.

    You are born a natural artist I must say. How did you learn to make such wonderful garlands out of the autumn leaves? I mean where did you get the idea? The pictures are also well-captured. Keep your creative thoughts active!

    Lovely! I can make use of the leaves in the backyard because we have this big maple tree just nearby. This seems like a good addition inside the house. Thanks!
