Aubie: "This is about an old lady. Mommy, I gon' tell you a story 'bout an old lady."
Aubie: "Once there was this old lady. Her name was Saige."
I didn't really want to hear the rest. Thank goodness she distracts easily.

Back before Thanksgiving, when it was warm enough to play outside, I couldn't stop my restless fingers from pulling up some muscadine vines and making a wreath. I wanted to use some of the gorgeous persimmon leaves--a pumpkin-y orange color--but got distracted by the 4-toned leaves in the front yard. So, I hot glued all these leaves and a few berries to it. Sadly, they did not stay this color, but the muted version was still pretty as well.
I wanted to see if I could make the same wreath work for Christmas, so I took all the leaves off and painted it red. I used this great ribbon that I'd been saving for such an occasion--sage green with red "tis the season to be jolly" on it. I just love true red and any shade of green for Christmas. Its so old-fashioned and Christmas-y.
