Fall Leaves

Today I got the hankering to decorate for fall.
In the new house, we have a small mantel,
which makes decorating even more exciting.

I'll show the whole mantel tomorrow, but for now...
Aren't those some lovely paper leaves?
I started out by picking these real leaves.
Aren't they pretty?
Then I traced them, and cut them out.
I don't have a silhouette, but honestly,
this was more fun anyway.
I love the way they turned out.
More when I show you the mantel.
