HAPPY SEPTEMBER 19 BIRTHDAY TO: Carter Oosterhouse 41, Randolph Mantooth 82, Trisha Yearwood 53, Jimmy Fallon 43, David McCallum 84, Bill Medley 77, Mario Batali 57, Joan Lunden 67, Twiggy 68, Katrina Bowden 29, Jeremy Irons 69, Adam ‘Batman’ West (1928-2017), and Mama Cass Elliot (1941-1974).

Who says Christmas ornaments are only good for one holiday season? Grab a wire frame wreath at a craft or dollar store and start putting together a beautiful fall wreath. Take a florist wire and loop it through the ornament hanger and then wire it to the wreath. Start with the largest ornaments and get those placed first, Try placing them at 1, 5, 7 and 11 o’clock positions instead of the usual 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock spots. Start to fill in spaces with medium and smaller ornaments in a mixture of matte, glitter and shiny finishes. The finish up with a leaf garland or individual faux leaves. Add in pine cones or twigs or anything you feel is fall-like. Tie on a big bow in brown, green or orange.

Try your hand at Halloween wreath with black, purple and silver ornaments. Fill in the spaces with tulle tied to the wire form and embellish with bats, skulls or spiders.

INTERESTING FACT: In George Washington’s days, there were no cameras. One’s image was either sculpted or painted. Some paintings of George Washington showed him standing behind a desk with one arm behind his back while others showed both legs and both arms. Prices charged by painters were not based on how many people were to be painted, but by how many limbs were to be painted. Arms and legs are ‘limbs,’ therefore painting them would cost the buyer more. Hence the expression, ‘Okay, but it’ll cost you an arm and a leg.’ (Artists know hands and arms are more difficult to paint).
