Fall Foliage- The Good, The Bad, and The Buggy

It was an absolutely beautiful weekend in the PNW. I got to visit one of my favorite places.  While there, I collected some amazing fall foliage!

It looks so lovely in my home- nature's colors just glow indoors.

Except for those fiery red branches from the burning bush shrub. Once I got them in my rusty flower can and in their new location, I realized the leaves were covered in tiny black dots and bugs.

So, back outside they went!

The perils of bringing nature inside- sometimes they come adorned with critters!

I have so many inspiring holiday project ideas for All That Jazz Vintage....as soon as I find a moment to get started on them, I'll share with you what will be arriving in our vendor space this November!

At least you got the photo before the bugs invaded! This weather has been so beautiful, I was worried in September when it rained all month!
You need to tell me about your inspiration, I don't have any at the moment!
