The seasonal decor I decided on for September is school/science themed
Though it is late in the month, this one should travel into October (since I doubt I'll get my butt in gear to do a Halloween display until mid-October) with the aid of a creepy skull specimen
(Yellow and blue make what? :: Foam skull from Michaels :: Lots of library books, including a notebook describing how to dissect a fetal pig :: phrenology chart found online)
It has been a fun challenge the last few months without major holidays to come up with unique themes
(Real science supplies from here :: Martha specimen box :: spot plate with spices)
But, I must admit it will be good to get into the last quarter of the year and into the months that have more obvious themes to choose from
And then it will be even better 'cause it will be the end of the year and I can stop this silly tradition altogether! Hallelujah!
(Chalkboard from the kitchen :: Science is fun!)
Though it has been really fun to try and develop fun holiday displays, I guess I am just not wired to do the same thing day after day, week after week, and month after month. Hence no handmade crafts for sale, and very few things that you see being made over and over. My motto is "I'll try anything once." And once usually about does it!
