I saw a picture in the recent issue of BHG and thought, “hey, I can do that!” So I did. At 7 p.m. at night while the casserole cooked in the oven, I put the cat on her leash and went out into the gardens around our yard to collect dried grass/flowers. In the dusky haze of autumn, I lashed the stalks, branches, and leaves together with twine. It has a very rustic look to it. I love it. But now, I don’t know if I want to hang it inside because there might be bugs in it. Microscopic gross bugs that I don’t want in my house. As of now, it’s on the covered porch, but I can’t really enjoy it out there. I’d much prefer to hang it on the front of my house above the front door, but I’m not sure if pounding a teeny nail into the siding is a good idea.
