Further Embracing the Sweetgum Tree

This place needed something posted to it, so I thought I'd show you the Christmas garland I've been working on, using - what else? The sweetgum balls off our tree in the front yard. I like how rustic it looks.

Zann, talk about making lemonade out of lemons. I love these, taking natural beauty and using it in decorating is right up my alley.

It looks like the garland we put on our Christmas tree every year, but a little more prickly. I bet it smells good too.
