Giving Thanks with Vintage Corsages!

Let's Eat Thanksgiving CorsageThe air is getting crisp and the nights are chilly! It’s a special time of year here in Southern Appalachia and nature is turning out in a spectacular display. Vibrant hues of rust, orange, golden yellow, and sienna brown are splashed across the mountains. The sunlight is mellow and it is hard to stay indoors during these special days. As I watch the leaves gently fluttering down, I give thanks for having the good fortune to live on such a lovely landscape.

I interpret this special time of year in my corsages by using rich velvet millinery flowers and leaves in those same gorgeous colors. In this corsage, I’ve added a vintage spun cotton pilgrim couple. They are proud of their feast of roasted turkey and pumpkin pie. Look closely near the top and you’ll find a miniature bottle of wine tucked in too! These look great in centerpieces, wreaths, and displayed leaning against small easels on a mantle or tabletop. Of course, all the corsages I make can also be worn!

In addition to corsages, I’ve also paired a tussie mussie pin featuring a Pumpkin Pie Pilgrim with a vintage hankie. I love this hankie – it has a great Fall scene with leaves and a pheasant. The bar pin on the tussie mussie makes it easy to affix to your lapel – or your favorite cook’s apron! What a great hostess gift!
