Wax On

Seriously, another Fallish post from Little Miss Whiny-About-Fall Britches, moi?

I'm telling you, I've learned that it's best to just roll with it all. My 2.25 days of moping around about it sure didn't help matters.

What did help (among other things) was learning how to wax leaves via my virtual pal Sarah at Clover Lane.

It's so Simple Simon.
And cheap.

It's true, you have to keep a close eye on the little people since it involves hot, melted wax.

I couldn't escape the feeling that we were totally In The Know on the best Fall idea ever.
I love being In the Know. It almost never happens.

With a flick of the wrist, the very beauty of the season is captured in time.
I know, it seems like cheating! But it's not.
If anything is cheating, it's polyester leaves on wired ribbon.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.

In cast you hadn't noticed, Mr. Fancy Pants Photographer showed up right in the thick of things.

Isn't it amazing that God thought ahead to make different kinds of leaves turn different colors with Fall's arrival?

He must have known how happy tie-dyed leaves on an ironstone plate would make some of us.
