Finished plates after a coat of Dark Brown Briwax. I must tell you that I LOVE Briwax. I had to order it from ACE. After ordering it I found some in an antique store - why didn't I think to look there, I wouldn't have had to wait. I think it's much easier to use than stain. Thanks to all of you who recommended this product.
On to fall, I've found a couple of things on clearance lately - the best item being these fall berries at Michaels. I bought them with a different use in mind, but decided to wrap the strands around my twig tree and I really like the way it looks. I took 2 pictures, the first with the flash
and this second one without the flash. You might get a better idea of how they look here....
Last night we went to our DD's Cross Country banquet. We were very excited that she earned her Varsity letter as a freshman. DD is on the right, her friend in the photo is the other freshman who lettered, they both worked hard to achieve this goal. Both were also honored as scholar athletes. We are so proud of DD. Now girls, next year we expect to move out of districts!
