Tuesday Display Chain

It's back and I am so excited! Thank you Misi for bringing this back! I am so excited to have some motivation  and also inspiration by seeing what everyone else has done.
So the theme this week was A New Appreciation. It took me awhile to come up with something but then as I was looking at my crock my mom and dad gave me for my birthday wondering what to do with it a memory crossed my mind. I remember when my mom first got the crock from her Grandma she would fill it with things around the yard and riverbank. I remember the corner it would sit and I also remember us kids throwing balls into it, brushing up against it and so on, I remember the mess it made that we had to vacuum up and also I remember thinking, "really mom, a crock of weeds?"  Well now that the crock is mine, I went out to my mom and dad's house, went to the very same back yard and riverbank and got my own weeds for my own display of fall beauty.

So I guess I have a new appreciation for my mom and her attempts of making her house our home.

Hi Cindi

I'm new here. I found you because we have some blogging friends in common. Great display. I always put "weeds" in vases or jugs, no matter what season.
