The Leaf Project
***************
I have to go and do errands, but I will be posting Saturday Evening Music later....This morning I went and gathered LEAVES, all different colors,..shapes and sizes.....And then I put them between Waxed Paper and throw aross silver glitter, and then a second piece is put across the top , and then a thin piece of cotten, and I iron the two pieces of wax paper together, and the leaves in between...and then I put it up in a Window after it has cooled... It is great to do with Kids, and also very fun to walk around trying to find that perfect Leaf...

I have been humming "Summertime" all day...so I am sharing....

Have a good Saturday and don't forget the Contest over at Watergate Summer...

I remember doing that with my son's Kindergarten class. They're so pretty, what a great idea. Thanks for reminding me.

i don't miss summer :) it is chilly here but i am taking the time to really feel the cold. usually i bundle to the utmost and grumble about it- but not after this summer :) the foliage here has run to browns and golds mostly- nothing really spectacular but it brings back memories of my sister and me shoving leaves into books- and then the pages sticking together because we didn't do it quite right :)

Did I send leaf pics to you? I forget. Lost too many brain cells and can't remember. I'll do it again.

Peace to All.

Love trees. Sadly, the feeling probably isn't mutual!
