Whew. That got a little heavy. We're here to offer a little Fall inspiration.
This wreath is deliciously created with bittersweet which grows here in the mountains. It is a vine with lovely fall colored berries. It should be appearing soon along the roadsides. Usually one or two booths at the Farmer's Market in Asheville will offer sprigs and wreaths. When we traveled doing antiques shows our customers looked forward to our October offerings of bittersweet. In fact, at one point we had a shop named Bittersweet Hill. It can be messy but oh, so glorious in display.
Bittersweet again. You get a better idea of how it can be used. If you are lucky enough to find it in the wild, be sure and spray it with something. I have used hair spray and spray lacquer. It helps the berries to hold on.
Whatever you're doing this Fall, don't forget to...
May all your wishes come true.
