Fun little things, part 2 (which sounds vaguely pornographic, but there you have it.)
Some folks luck out.
Some people "inherit" great landscaping. (Not me.)
Some people get some great plants, despite the fact that they have been overgrown with English ivy for the past fifteen years. (THAT would be me.)
And some people are keeping the mantle to a minimum this year. (That would be me, too.)
So all I did was coerce DL into cutting some of the holly (we have an abundance) and put some white pottery and mercury glass on the mantle. I used little glasses for inside the containers (I never trust the leakage quotient on vintage items) and filled them with holly.
(I found this little mercury glass frog at a home decor shop for five bucks and I had the green beaded garland.)
I put my cracklie green balls into white pottery loving cups that I got on sale at the Tar-jhay. (Realizing that this sounds like Shrek preparing for a football game. Green balls...cup...get it?) (Yes, in real life I AM a 14 year-old boy.)
Yep...keeping it simple.
...or lazy. Whichever.
