I've spent the whole day putting away Christmas
decorations and sorting through things ~ trying as I
do every end-of-year, to get myself organized.
The problem with sorting and organizing is that things
usually get worse before they get better.
Along the way and through the clutter, I took
time out to play and arrange a few new
vignettes for winter.
That's the fun thing about cleaning out ~ you come across
things you forgot you had and find new creative ways to use them.
I'm using my brown transfer ware plate with an arrangement
of artificial evergreens, cotton, and pine cones.
Brown transfer ware is my fave and I adore this old plate!
I got it at a yard sale this summer for $.50.
I love to display it in any way I can.
I love the crackle finish on this urn. It adds so
much character to the piece and gives it an aged look.
When mixed with evergreens, the cotton reminds me
of snow ~ only the warm and fuzzy kind.
I'll take my snow in this form anytime.
Guess I'd better stop playing around and get back to cleaning.
