or just decorating for fall?
I brought it home and into the house where it didn't seem to fit. Then I took it out and put it on the table on the patio. It was from the Outdoor Living department after-all. ;) I popped a candle into it and called it good. But, there's one thing I hadn't really paid that much attention to. It's still technically summer and that table can get a heaping helping of hot sunlight in the middle of the day. Can you guess what happened to my candle? It started to melt so I had to pull it.
I was sitting out there this afternoon looking at my empty thingamajig and wondering just what I could put in it. Five minutes later, R came from the backyard and dumped a handful of acorns onto the patio. *lightbulb moment* We went around and gathered this heaping helping of acorns.
I will have to admit that I had a few pangs of guilt while picking the acorns to fill the holder. I thought about the squirrels and felt like we were stealing from them! I decided that when I'm finished with the acorns as decoration, I'll put them back out for the squirrels and maybe my guilt will go away.
