Monday’s Make-it … { Decorating with leaves $0.00 }

Happy Monday!!! I woke up this am so energized to start the week (hmm, could be bec of the candy cane I had for breakfast). Today’s post shows you how you can economically decorate your dining table or mantle at $0.00 cost by using leaves giving to us by mother nature.  Below are several leaves (see the beautiful variety in color) that I picked from my morning walk:


I flattened + dried the leaves by placing a plate on top of them :

Then I ‘upcycled’ jars that I already had at home by using them as vases:


Here’s a peek at my fireplace mantle, and how these $0.00 cost decor looks on it:

I find it lovely and elegant (simplicity is usually elegant in my book).

So, what did you do this weekend? I went to the Opera to see La Boheme. I admit, at 1st it was a bit slooowzzz for me and I wasn’t sold on the concept that they fell in love saying I looove yous to each other the FIRST day that they meet. Buuut, at the end of the last scene I had tissue in hand wiping my tears away  …. the music was so powerful together with the voices of their wonderful actors. Have you been to the Opera?
