I’ve been away from home a bit lately and it’s hard to keep up with the holidays quickly approaching.
I was at a lovely holiday open house and luncheon at a charming KY destination. There were presentations on using live holiday plants, greenery, and florals for simple holiday décor. I picked up this beautiful centerpiece arrangement for my Thanksgiving table.
It was done by an award-winning floral designer and I love the rustic twig vase.
She talked about all the different plant material she used, but my favorite it the Star of Bethlehem. It’s one of my holiday favorites.
Have you guys seen these? They’re Scentsicles!
Maybe I’ve been under a rock and everyone already knows about them, but I just ran across them in Lowe’s and I think they are the coolest thing. Just hide the sticks in artificial greenery and their balsam scent fills the air. You can also use them in fresh greens to keep the scent strong.
I hadn’t been antiquing or vintage shopping since I was in France in September so I did a little treasure hunting in Louisville week before last.
I was specifically looking for red and white pieces or transferware to use in my Christmas décor. I scored pretty good with these 3 vintage hotel ironstone pieces and the English transfer covered tureen.
I was thrilled to find these milk glass pieces. A small vase for the mini-evergreen I picked up at Trader Joe’s and a small open-weave piece to thread ribbon thru.
Love the vintage French ribbon with the white milk glass.
I’m off to Lexington again today making last minute arrangements for Thanksgiving.
Blessings to all,
