The air is becoming crisp, the strawberries of summer have all been eat or preserved, and cider season is upon us. It’s fall on Vashon Island. For most of us all fall not only means airing out sweaters and finding hats and gloves, but also cozying up our homes for the changing of the seasons. Bringing the warm reds, yellows, and browns of falling leaves and the misty grey greens of the sea into your home is a great idea for adding fall flavor to your decor, but a fantastic way to begin your seasonal decorating is to start at your front door with a beautiful wreath that reflects your individual style, seasonal taste, or even your favorite sports team.
Vashonite, Kimberly Clark, draws on favorite local pastimes and the island’s ever changing landscape for artistic inspiration when making her fun and attractive seasonal wreaths and decor. Lately, she has been creating many new items for fall. Her 14 inch wreaths are just the right size for hanging on your front door. Her fall straw wreath ($25) features natural burlap ribbon, durable artificial flowers and leaves in fall colors, and artistically placed twigs.
She also makes a smaller 8 inch fall wreath ($15) that works perfectly in spaces with less room or where hanging two wreaths side by side in windows or on double doors looks best. Made from natural grape vine and featuring autumn colored flowers and berries, this wreath is the perfect fall accent for your indoor or outdoor space.
For those who want to proudly display their team pride, Kimberly makes fun sports themed wreaths using your team’s colors ($25). Hawk’s fans will smile every time they pass her 14 inch green and black football and flower wreath.
Kimberly has also created some hand painted fall jars ($25) full of rustic charm and whimsy that would look great on any table top or mantel.
Kimberly is happy to duplicate any of the items pictured here, or she can custom make something for you to match your favorite colors and theme. She also has many other projects on the way, so stay tuned for more from her including some crocheted Seahawks and Pirates hats and scarves made by her mother.
