Looking for beautiful, simple way to usher in autumn?
Last week I was on the hunt for some hardy window box flowers when I spotted these beautiful Japanese Lanterns hanging in a barn at a local farm (in fact, they just gave them to me!..and now have my business for life).
These deep orange beauties are such cheerful additions to the kettle and I got so darned excited, I went back to get a bunch more for the front of the sanctuary at church, too. I heard so many comments about them on Sunday morning and overheard lots of incredulous "what ARE those beautiful things?!
(For you lucky locals, Rosehip Farm in Beverly is selling a bunch for $5. And they are dried so they should last forever...or until your baby crushes them all.)
