Well, it was another “head shakin’ Hubby” day, here at the Young’s homestead yesterday.
You know what I’m talking about ladies.
One of those wonderful idea’s you come up with that Hubby just doesn’t
So his reply is just to shake his head and walk away.
I decided to make a twig tree for my foyer.
The other morning my Mom and I came back from our walk, each carrying these wonderful big limbs that had fallen from a tree a few days earlier.
Oh, what a funny sight I bet we were.
Anyway. I took the two branches, tie wrapped them together at the bottom. Placed them in a flower pot.
Stuffed the pot with newspaper, then poured in Plaster Of Paris.
Once it hardened, I placed the pot inside a crock and topped it with Spanish Moss.
Poof… A Prim Twig Tree.
Here is what it looked like at first.
I liked it, but I felt like it was too bare.
Still I felt like something was missing.
I considered adding white lights.
(Which I still may around Christmas.)
But I didn't want to do that quite yet.
I finally decided to say, the heck with the season, and added some Bittersweet garland and other berries.
Yes, much better.
The tree looked good but I didn't like how bare the floor was around it.
I thought it needed some color surrounding the crock.
So, I decided on this…
I added two of my pumpkins to the display.
And there you have it!
The finished display.
Well, finished for now. :)
Because of where I put my tree, I had to move my firkin stack and do a little tweaking here and there.
Here are a few shots of my tweaked areas.
I added this bird nest to the inside of the basket.
Originally they were displayed separately.
The basket was sitting on this yellow table.
I moved it and placed my top stacker firkin here instead.
I placed the other 2 firkins next to my fireplace.
These were sitting in the foyer corner where my tree is now.
And that is how I spent yesterday.
I have been at the doctors office ALL DAY today!!
Don’t even want to get started about that! Gggrrr!
Any who… Now I'm exhausted and I think I am going to do nothing the rest of the night.
I know I need to do “this”, finish “that”.
But I just don't know if I can.
I need to rest at least for awhile, then we’ll see.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Take Care and Talk Soon,
