Beautiful Hanging Leaves

I LOVE the Fall.  The crispness in the air, the harvest, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the turning leaves.  Have you noticed how beautiful the leaves are this year?  Bring some into the house and hang them in the window for a fun fall display.  Imagine the reds, oranges, yellows, and greens welcoming in the fall.

1. Melt bleached beeswax over a double boiler.  Dip leaves in wax one at a time, holding by stem. gently shake off excess wax.

2. Hang leaves on clothespins to dry. Some may be dipped again, depending on desired look; let dry between coatings. Hang finished leaves from lengths of fishing line or ribbon.


On this solemn day, as we all take a moment to remember the innocent victims and selfless heroes impacted by 9/11, our thoughts and prayers go out to all who were lost and those who grieve them.  Many people continue to be touched by this tragedy.  For those of you who have given to our country through personal sacrifice or through the service of loved ones, we owe you our deepest gratitude.
