Leaves Art

Leaves Art

Don't you love all those beautiful colors that come with each season?  The mute colors of Winter, the soft colors of Spring, the bright strong colors of Summer...



Or the deep yellows, reds, oranges of Fall?  Oh, I'm loving those colors right now!  That's a picture of how my street looks these days...


There are still many leaves on the trees...


But even more on the ground...  
A couple of weeks ago I grabbed some of those leaves and brought them inside to create instant art ;)


They replaced those pictures we had taken in NY, they had been there on the breakfast area for so long.


It was so easy, some pieces of tape were used to attach the leaves to a white mat.



It was another way to give the room some more brightness besides the "new" shade and the open cabinet.



Now I'm looking for some branches to decorate during Winter ;)
