As soon as it was light outside I took my pruners and went out to cut greens.
I thought I had plenty with these two pails full, but I ended up going out twice more to get refills. That red plastic container in the big basket is a Folgers coffee container. It works well to hold the water and floral foam.
All of the arrangements I made are very simple--just greenery and an accessory or two--like this mini quilt. Is that a little foot I see on the left side?
Oh, my goodness, there's a little elf hiding in that arrangement!
In addition to this kitchen arrangement, I made some to fill the entertainment center shelves.
This one has a gold glass tree top in the center.
This one has Santa.
This is my favorite. It has a gold star and I put it in a sleigh that my friend at work made for me. The branches with berries are from my burning bush shrub.
This one just has a gold reindeer.
Like I said they are all very simple to make.
Every time I came from the garage to inside the house, I could smell the evergreen. I like that.
Here is my little snowman quilt that I bring out every winter.
For those who are quilters, the snowman is actually made from tiny little log cabin blocks. It's from a Crystal Carter book.
