I created three fall vignettes. But it was so dark outside with the storm that it was hard to get decent photos.
So I will show you one each day when I can get better photos.
This fall vignette is made up of a dough bowl for the base.
Then I found some raffia in a bag I’ve probably had for years. I spread that in the bottom of the dough bowl.
Ivy was quite interested in this part of course.
I put a faux pumpkin in the middle. Then I surrounded it with faux yellow pears. I also found a few faux acorns to add.
Creating The Fall Vignette:
I like to leave some of the raffia dangling over the base. In this case a dough bowl.
Then cut back the raffia if it spills over too much. Raffia is hard to contain.
If you don’t have a curious cat, you might not need to do this.
With the other two vignettes I used my other wooden dough bowl and a vintage wooden box as bases.
Instead of just scattering fall decor around my apartment, I chose to make vignettes to highlight the season.
I will probably be adding a bit more. Sometime this month I’ll go to Trader Joe’s. They always have very reasonably priced gourds and mini pumpkins.
I’m afraid Charlie has slid back downhill. I just talked to the vet’s office and asked them if it was time to let him go.
Dr. Poteet said he didn’t thing it was time yet. But if he hasn’t had any liquids or eaten by noon I’m to call. And then take him back in for more fluids.
Last night I filled a dropper with water and gave that to him twice.
They told me just to let him be until noon. My stomach feels twisted into knots.
His tests yesterday were a lot better than last week. But he was still dehydrated.
He was showing some spirit and eating and drinking starting Saturday up until yesterday afternoon. Now he won’t take a treat, which is how I give him his heart medication. He loves those pill pockets. But now he won’t touch them.
And so I will wait to see what Dr. Poteet thinks. Our plan yesterday was to give him more fluids Wednesday and Friday and try to wean him off them. But if by noon he isn’t better I will take him back in.
Right now he’s in his usual spot, tucked up against me in the recliner.
Dr. Poteet just called me and said the thunderstorm was supposed to clear up around noon.
Kendra’s Flip House:
Kendra just called to check on Charlie as she was driving to the flip house. When she got there she saw that someone had broken in. She had dry walled over a door and someone broke through it.
Of course she was upset. She has thousands of dollars of appliances sitting there. A window was open as well.
She has created a beautiful ceiling for the dining room. Usually she makes one dining room wall a “statement wall.”
This time the dining space was too small. So she chose the ceiling.
She has an absolutely gorgeous gold chandelier she will be adding after everything is painted. It was commissioned by an Etsy seller so it’s one of a kind.
