Magnolia Garland: Part 2

Not bad for a first attempt at a garland. It hung over the chest about 1.5 feet on each side. Maybe next year I'll even make it long enough to actually drape over a mantle or doorway. I didn't want to add anything to it really & just let the size of the leaves speak for themselves. By Christmas the undersides started to turn a nice coppery brown.

Science vs. Romance

Image Hosted by

A belated anniversary present purchased for a song at a little boutique here in our fair river city.

As a side note, i also realized it's pronounced "kee-lee" and not "kigh-lee". (listening to too much rilo i guess)
And btw, have you seen her home?!?

Vintage Spooner

I picked up this cane patterned vintage spooner
at an estate sale a few months ago.
I love how it looks filled with hydrangeas.
