Yard Clippings and such…

If you’re like me, Nature is mesmerizing! What is more beautiful than God’s handwork? Not only do I love nature in all its glory, but I LOVE decorating my house! I’m not a millionaire, so I don’t have endless cash to spend on home decor; and honestly, I probably wouldn’t any way.

Yard clippings, fallen branches, sea shells, bark, pine cones… I mean the possibility is truly endless. I always find myself dragging some treasure I’ve found meandering around and usually find something to make out if it!

This is my latest project, a wreath made of palm frond droppings! I have 3 HUGE palm trees in my yard and they are constantly seeding and reseeding leaving behind an abundance of wonderfulness!! See what they look like in their natural form here :

As you can see, they are fabulous alone or clipped and gathered and wired to form a wreath! It was sooo easy! Here’s how I did it:

Gathered the clippings so that the bend of the fiber was flowing in the same direction.

Next, I just started attaching in the same direction using floral wire.

The best part for me, NO HOT GLUING! Although I love hot glue in all its crafting glory, I always and I mean always burn myself!!

After about 45 minutes, I’ve got myself a beautiful wreath made by nature and assembled by me!!

The possibilities truly are endless. Go for a nice long walk, you never know what you might find! Below I’ll attach some of my other finds from nature. If you make something fabulous, please share! We love to see cool ideas!! Happy hunting!

We are two vintage loving sisters! Do you remember that song by Barbara Mandrel? “I Was Country When Country Wasn’t Cool”?, well we were Vintage when vintage wasn’t cool!! We traipsed garage sales, barn sales, flea markets and attics with our Mom way back in the ‘70s. Our Mom had a love for all things old and from the past. All of the furniture we had growing up was stuff our Mom found second-hand and refinished in our garage, with our Dad. Each piece had a story, and it usually involved Mom talking her way into some old farmhouse attic! We learned the love of the hunt from our sweet Marilyn and to this day, we love nothing more than digging through a pile of vintage, second-hand stuff!! We are both Moms and first-time Grandmas or Mammaws. We both have full-time jobs and full-time families. We love nothing more than our family as well as the Memories we cherish from Murry Lane, our family home. We dedicate this site to our Mom who instilled family, home, and hard-work into us and our brothers. We’d love to have you hang out with us! You never know what we might find! 🌿 Happy Vintage Hunting! 🌿 Laura & Kim 🌿
