In a bedroom was the old vintage mirror, a tiny Baby Ben clock, an small antique black metal cash box (with a great orange stripe) and the vintage silver plated compote. Compotes are great to use in a display because it lifts the arrangement "up" and gives you more space to display things along the bottom. One of my "rules" is also to use similar colors and like textures to keep the display cohesive. Here I used black metals, orange pumpkins and then added the glass for reflection and contrast - and it serves as a two-fer so the cage won't scratch the wood.
This lovely fall bouquet is from my husband. We celebrated out 25th wedding anniversary last weekend. Where has time gone to? Our wedding is still so fresh in my mind, as if it were just a week ago.
This is a bowl of FREE things from sweet Mother Nature. My honey and I gathered up some pinecones and acorns awhile back. I even scraped up some wonderful soft moss off of a rock and added it for a splash of color. This arrangement doesn't even require water.
Cloches and pedestal cake plates are perfect for just about any arrangement. Here is a vintage wood squirrel sitting happily amongst things he is so familiar with.
This little guy just could not be happier! He has a whole nest of acorns. Watch out now Mr. Squirrel...those midget squirrels are sneaking up to steal that big acorn whilst you are staring at me and my camera!!!!
