Those pressed leaves are getting put to good use.
Inspired by the "botanical" section of the Martha Stewart Craft Encyclopedia I remembered this amazing springtime "stained glass" found via Pinterest and there you have it.
Biscuit and I finally pressed enough leaves to do all 7 of our front room windows.
During the day, they look amazing from the inside.
And at night, it's quite pretty (and quite hard to photograph) from the outside.
The windows are pretty but the walks with Biscuit and Oscar to gather the leaves were the best part. Biscuit took notes on each type of leaf (providing names like sickomore and more fanciful names like purple sunrise). It took forever but the weather was great, the baby was happy and what better way is there to spend an afternoon?
