Fall Table Runner and Osage Oranges

Drop Cloth Fall Table Runner

Last year I crafted an easy table runner for fall and thought it was too plain.  To give it an update, I added a green ruffle.  No more plain Jane.  Now my fall runner is styling!

A ruffle jazzes it up just enough!

A bowl of Osage Oranges coordinates with the runner and definitely says “It’s September”.  I gather Osage Oranges every year from a tree on city property.  I wonder if I’m the only person in town who does this?

Osage Oranges have a particular smell and rot fairly quickly.  I’ve learned that I have to keep my eye on my arrangement and compost the rotten ones fairly quickly.

In a few weeks I will replace the Osage Oranges with gourds.  I love gourds and can’t wait to purchase some for decorating.
