It's a New Year and a DIY

                                 Hello all my friends!

             I can't believe it's already the middle of January and this is my first post.

                     If you have been keeping up with me you would have known that
                               I have had computer issues... Well that's all behind me now
                                that I have a new laptop..

                            Hope everyone had a great Christmas and New Year!!

                                      I know that Santa was great to us all!!

                  Thought I would start the new year with a DIY ...
                                I had put together this simple arrangement for my table
                                        before Christmas and I couldn't share it with you.

                                      First up I purchased this ironstone dish while
                                            at a Christmas Show in Markham.

                                             Love at first sight...only $10.00

I knew the moment I saw it what I was going to use it for.

                                     I purchased 3 poinsettia's in red.
                                             4" pots.

                                   Then I cut up some burlap to cover the pot

                                      and added a wooden ornament with some jute

                                             Easy and cute don't you think?

                                 Now comes the serving dish....I placed a plastic tray upside down
                                        to give height in the dish then I covered it with burlap
                                            so as not to see it.

                                            The three Pointsettia fit perfect.

                                            My first look I added some candy canes

                                           Then I added some painted pinecones that I had added
                                                    white craft paint just to the tops.

Here's the two looks on my kitchen table.


                                                I liked this look best of all.

                                 Oh I have so many pictures still to watermark and share
                                            but that will have to be another day.

                                               Happy Wednesday Everyone!

                                         Always happy to hear from you!
                                           Thanks for stopping by!
