that the teacher must have given them. Yes...I put those on the tree last year...even though my children are in their thirties.
It will be a little while before I have some Christmas tablescapes and decorating ideas for you...but I do have one tabletop to show you today. It is just a simple little transitional tabletop. I already have planned how it will become a Christmas tablescape. But then my ideas do change, and often.
When I checked out, the young man asked me if I knew that my topiaries were real. Real? Surely not. I saw nothing real about them. I thought that they were preserved. He told me about a larger boxwood wreath that a lady bought and then some time later brought it back because the green leaves turned brown. I am kind of wondering about what he is telling me. Then he showed me the tag on the topiary...and it says to mist the boxwood once a month.
Hmmm. I was not sure if wanted to have to care for one more thing in my life...but I looked at the tag, and yes it said to mist it once a month. I bought the pair and put them on my kitchen table. But before that...I took my misting bottle and gave them a good shower. The last thing I want my leaves to do is to turn brown. I am not sure how all of this really works...but the clerk said to mist them. And the tag says to mist them. So, I will mist them... once a month!
later and embroidered over some of the names...as she liked to do needle work.(We also have a fall tablecloth with matching napkins that she embroidered, and used at Thanksgiving) Holidays and memories go together!
Thanks for visiting!
Until the next time,
