It’s that time of year again when the trees give their last hurrah with a big burst of color, as their leaves leave them until next spring.  The magnificent color of the foliage dictate the color palette for our Thanksgiving table.

My mom, a former florist, loves “shopping local”, she gets most of the material for creating her centerpieces from our yard.

She found this great chunk of wood, and I must admit, the antler was found inside the house.  My mom was so excited to use moss, it’s something she never sees in West Texas.

I love the mix of color and texture, and even if the blooms are dried up or dead, they still make the cut.  Everything gets used, no matter what stage of life it’s in.

Here is the artist at work in the Color Shed.  For the past several years, we have had Thanksgiving dinner in the Color Shed, which is in our back yard.  This is where we develop new colors and do most of the color work for YOLO Colorhouse.
