A study in Textures
My talented friend, Helen, made this darling iron snowman. She makes incredible ironworks and I love this snowman. I found the burlap garland at Michael's--huge roll for $3 or $4. We use it in our staging and I love to decorate with it. I am crazy about pinecones too -- there are so many different varieties. I picked these up at one of my seller's homes. I like the softness of them and the lighter color.
What was a big booboo on my part actually turned out to be a good thing. My mother-in-law gave us some Morel mushrooms a couple of years ago and I set them in a dish on top of the frig. And of course I forgot about them until they had completely dried up! But . . . I looked at them and thought they would look good in a glass container and I added a few other tidbits. It looks great on my "texture" shelf.
