Remember how I suggested recently that you visit
fabulous ceramic artist Gina at to view her
beautiful blog, Art and Alfalfa.
Whilst there, you could enjoy her tutorial on how to turn dull brown acorns into golden gems to add to your Holiday decor. Gina first used a gold pen, then upped the ante by actually gold leafing her acorns, and they are gorgeous. Here are my embellished acorns - and I admit I used just a KRYLON 18kt Gold Leafing Pen because I couldn't find my gold leafing supplies - hidden somewhere in the depths of the attic. I then used the same pen to make the place name tags for my guests when they arrive to eat at my Thanksgiving table today......these little acorns are now
part of my table decor.
I'm off now to start cooking - most of the prep done yesterday. The rain has gone thankfully and later, when the sun comes up, I'm hoping it stays bright for the entire day.
Happy holiday wishes.
May today be a blessed Thanksgiving Day
wherever you may be.
