Simply done ...

Hello strangers!

I have been spending more time these days over on Facebook, but I really want to get into a better practice of sharing here on the website as well. So, that being said, I thought it would be perfect to show with you a few things I'm working on for the holiday and winter decorating season.

First, a simple little decoration I put together for the kitchen...an old vintage pair of white woolen mittens are the perfect seasonal "vase" for fresh greens and the fresh greens being rosemary. I love the smell of fresh rosemary and it mingles so nice with fresh pine. Plus, there is a huge bush of rosemary right outside my kitchen door ... easy pickins' for sure! Mittens and rosemary all tied up with some natural jute twine and hung from the cabinet door. So simple !!


Next, I assembled a few more sprigs of rosemary, a handful of vintage bottles (vintage Pyrex baby bottles, to be exact), white candles, and the same jute twine to make simple centerpieces to be used down the middle of the table.



They work nicely as a group or individually .... 

Again, so simple!!




Later this week I'll be sharing some tablescapes and place settings I'm working on for an upcoming presentation.

I do hope you'll come back for a visit!
