orange garland

I've been wanting to try this for years and just never took the time until this week.
It's one of those things that you think, "why on earth did I wait so long to try?"
At Thanksgiving, my parents brought me some oranges that they grew,
and I thought it would be fun to make a garland with some of them.
The oranges are so pretty once they're dried; the colors intensify and look like stained glass.
I thought they looked especially gorgeous in that vintage blue bowl...
complementary colors rock!!

 Couldn't decide where I wanted to hang the garland...
 I tried it in the window but that really emphasized the need to clean the window.
(insert eye roll here)
So, the garland found it's home here!
Knowing me,  I'll move it again before this day is over.
Can't believe it's already Christmas Eve!
 I'm off to bake and enjoy a day with my family:)
