Nature's Bounty

On our holidays/seasons blog (http://frugalluxuriesseasons.blogspot.com/)
We have more photos of how to use what you have to create
eco-friendly, budget friendly, double-duty holiday decor!
In these photos I've used my favorite Acorn squash; oranges from my Dad's house;
and a variety of seed pods gathered from the garden!
Place them in wooden or ceramic bowls for table centerpieces
(Caution: The candle in the bowl is for LOOKS ONLY!
Obviously, DON'T light the candle or you'll have a bonfire!!)
Took all of ten -- fifteen minutes to gather and arrange...
No Money (except when I bought the squash for $1.19 each at the farm stand).
I'll eat them once the holiday is over (cut in half & baked with a little butter & sea salt)...
and replace the autumn-y colors/things with Christmas ornaments and fresh
evergreens from the garden (such as Rosemary, Eucalyptus, & Pine).
The twinkle lights & candles remain (I'll replace the tiny oranges with cranberries or??).
This saves time, money and is very very green!

"FRUGAL LUXURIES: Simple Pleasures to Enhance Your Life and Comfort Your Soul" was written by Tracey McBride and published by Bantam Books, NY, in 1997. It was the first of its genre to synergize the elements of simplicity, frugality and gracious living.

After more than a decade, FRUGAL LUXURIES has never been out of print and is now more relevant than ever.

"It's our hope that a new generation, faced with a teetering economy, will also find this information helpful and enlightening."

Sending Good Thought to Our Special Band of Kind and Kindred Souls!
