In my kitchen window, I root cuttings and start young plants. With every season, I add decorations amid the pots and bottles that line the sill. My favorite little 'Harvest' sign sits center on the sill flanked by two carved wood pumpkins. The little brown bottle vase perched on the sign adds some height and the single mum in the vase completes the display.
Fall is a fun time of year. Here in North Central Pennsylvania the weather gets cooler and the leaves change from green to vibrant orange, red and yellow. Pumpkins and mums adorn every front entryway - even cornstalks make an appearance on some porches. Mini pumpkins and gourds find themselves on mantels and as centerpieces on dining tables. I like to incorporate the tiny clear and brown wired bottles into my fall decorations. Since they are small, they work well on a windowsill or placed on a shelf amidst a fall display. I always place fresh flowers in them and at this time of year, a single mum (or two) adds an extra special touch.
Hanging above the sill display, I have two wired vases/rooters. Again, I change out the color of the vases with the seasons. For Autumn, I have orange and green hanging together. The colors compliment each other and coordinate with my Harvest sign. Sometimes I root ivy in the hanging vases. For now, I'll just add cut flowers from pots of mums or pick up fresh flowers from the local supermarket every few weeks to keep the hanging vases full of color. When it comes time to transition to Christmas holiday decorations, I will switch out the orange vase for a red one!
