Fall Trees

Behold— The only "color" we'll see in Florida this Fall. I wish I take the kids up north to see the leaves turn, but this'll have to do. Jackson is learning about Fall colors in Kindergarten and he's decided to collect "Fall leaves" as he calls them. I don't have the heart to tell him he's actually just collecting a bunch of dead leaves. My purse is full of his lovely collection.
This forest is suspended from the ceiling in the hallway of the kids' school. I made this forest from boxes I've been collecting for about a month now. When I spotted a Samsung flat screen TV box hanging out of a dumpster I thought I hit the mother load. I painted newspaper to make the leaves.

Happy Fall!


  1. Amazing! Next best thing to real trees and leaves.

  2. Melanie, I miss seeing you and your creations. Now that I am fully a stay-at-home mom that does photography on the side, there are days I miss seeing the creativity! By the way we are about 18 weeks pregnant with a surprise baby we hope to find out soon. Take care! Bran

  3. I've missed seeing you too! Wow, so happy for you. Sounds like you are enjoying married life. Enjoy eating for two. That was one of my favorite parts of being pregnant:)
