Dundarave Maple Leaves

Ocean waves and autumn breezes, maple leaves and a mini-holiday. I breath deeply and relax for this moment in time. 
Dundarave in West Vancouver BC has a sturdy wharf, breakers, huge rocks, driftwood, a sandy beach and water/sun worn logs for backrests and wind shelters. Every six weeks we get our hair cut by our dear friend John. He lives and works a block from this beach and never visits.
Every time we make the somewhat long drive I do visit, walk and take pictures at the beach. Today the maple leaves along Dundarave covered the sidewalks and invited gathering. Last year I waxed the leaves. This year they became part of my vignette of thrifted finds.
I sorted bags of buttons into color sets, added orange cookie cutters to a small jar and filled an egg/salad basket with the maple leaves. The cast iron plant holders mixed well with the leaves and fall gourds.
The newspaper is from February 1922 and has a lovely yellowed patina. I've been using circles of this newspaper when I modpodged lid tops for my jar collections.
