I did put together one of my favorite decorations the other day.
This sits on the counter at our breakfast bar so I can enjoy it from the kitchen sink area.
I found an old flour sifter at an antique store and filled it with clippings from our cedar tree. I also made a few applesauce cinnamon ornaments that have stood the test of time.
I filled a little bowl with cranberries...fresh out of the freezer so they frosted up for a minute...along with a votive candle and another cinnamon-applesauce ornament.
As a place mat I made one block from a quilt pattern using primitive looking fabrics and washed it to make it all crinkled.
Progress. And, so far, the cats aren't interested.
