leaf on wooden spool

This is the most satisfying windowsill arrangement I've done in months, and it started out in the weirdest way. I was looking for something to use as a platform for a very small ornamental gourd. Thought a large wooden spool would be good. Discovered that in my entire collection of spools of thread there was only one wooden one. Why didn't I save more wooden spools?! Tried to use that one under my gourd, but it was too small. Tried the small spool under a tomatillo that happened to be sitting nearby. Too boring. Then I looked to my right and saw this wonderful little leaf sort of shriveling up in and arrangment I had done earlier (and posted on August 22). JUST RIGHT!
