We harvested some wild bittersweet along a fence row. We just had to wade the weeds to get to it.
Next we ventured to the local cemetery to gather buckeyes and acorns. The squirrels had beat us to most of the acorns, but we gathered some of the hairy caps. Then Kaylee and I gathered some tiny pine cones from beneath my black forest spruce tree. But it can't be all work and no play. Kaylee needed to go swing in the back yard for awhile.
I also made a very delicate dragonfly sculpture. This dragonfly is much smaller than most I make. It's wings are made of a strip of brass flashing off an old door. One wing even has a nail hole in it from where it was fastened to the door. The side of the brass exposed to the weather has a beautiful patina. It sits atop a steel rod, inserted into an a piece of antique walnut.
And I painted this old drawer to convert it into a display shelf. It can stand or hang.
I hope you found something fun to do with your weekend.
