For the Love of Diorama

When we moved into this house, we were confronted with a big hole in the wall. The residents before us had literally cut a hole the exact size of their TV into the wall (actually the back of a hall closet) in our living room. Our TV is significantly smaller than the hole. Thus, our living room looked a little strange with a TV sitting in a big hole in the wall. Handy husband came to the rescue and built shelving around the TV and now it looks more like we have custom cabinets. As you can see in the picture, though, there is a decent sized shelf above the TV. This lent itself to many possible uses, but the one that immediately seemed most interesting to me and the kids was: Diorama! (not quite so much to Husband...)

So what you are looking at is our Fall display. I will often come up with a general background theme and then the kids will add to it through out the season. M made all the fallen apples and we picked up the mini gourds at the pumpkin patch. I totally had fun making the hay bales and spooky clouds. Soon we will be moving on to Winter, but I wanted to show you all our harvest theme. Now you have yet another thing to look forward to on this blog!
