Well, I finally got my Christmas Tree up. It's not a traditional tree, in fact it took me just a few minutes to put together. I bought two really large glass bottles from a garage sale a while back, just because I liked them. So one one them has been used to hold a big olive tree branch that i cut from the tree in my back yard...
We have so many divine Christmas decorations in our gift shop at the moment and I choose these cute feather birds to sit in the tree.
I have been personalising a few gifts with an alphabet stamp set. Brown craft paper looks great with a crisp white bow.
Pine Cones that I found in the neighbourhood add a festive touch.
My timber table has adjustable drop down sides, well I pulled them up and placed gifts underneath..perfect.
Find an old bike in a junk shop or garage sale and plant the basket up with cascading petunias and small cottage plants.Use a coconutfibre liner to help hold soil and moisture. Sit the bike in the garden, for a touch of quirkiness.
C.I Y project 2- Do you have any old boots laying around? Maybe some old Dr. Martins? Fill them up with a quality potting mix and plant succulents or nasturtiums in them. The more weathered and aged the boots get, the better they look.
