Here are some pictures of some gardens I visited last weekend. Lots of fun ideas.
So peaceful. I hope you enjoy the tour.
If you want a closer look I think you can click the pictures to make them larger.
I hope you all have a lovely day :)
|Please ignore the fact that the stairs are |
"temporary" - unpainted plywood and all.
|Cut really close to where it "branches".|
|Use a berry pick which you picked up on a huge sale.|
Just pull one strand out at a time. It's actually rather therapeutic.
|I used two berry strands and two "branches" from the greens.|
|Twist the ends of the greens together to make a circle. |
Wind the berry strands around that.
|Set the mini wreath on top of the jar and place the candle in it.|
Hmmm... needs something....
|A strand or two of the berries wrapped around?|
They were going to be a pain when turning the
candles on and off.
I think it needs snow...
|What do I have that looks like snow?|
This stuff - and better yet I'll still be able to
use it when I'm done with the jars!
|Didn't use this funnel for jam last June,|
but it came in handy for this job!
|Those little pellets are pretty bouncy, so pour slowly!|
|This was the kind of look I was going for. Simple.|
I love the soft light from the jars going up my stairs.
|I have had yet another beautiful surprise |
in the mail from Linda of Parker's Paradise.
I am truly humbled by her ongoing generosity.
I wish I could convey to her how much her
gifts in the mail have touched me and lifted me up.
