Next stop was WalMart where I got this cheerful yellow mum.
I just happened to have this wire chicken I bought a few weeks earlier at Olde Tyme Marketplace in Marshville, one of my favorite shops with my favorite shopkeeper Beth. You can “like” her on Facebook. The chicken was just looking for a place to perch, so this was the perfect spot.
All the pine trees around here are laden with pinecones, so I collected a bunch.I bought a grapevine wreath at Michaels, using the app which gives me 40% off, then used my trusty hot glue gun to attach the pinecones to the wreath.
Some left over burlap made a simple bow.
