I love using what I already have in new ways. When I purchase something new I try to determine if I will use it often and if it will work well with other things I own. My little conservatory usually is put away during the winter months but this year I thought I would make a little vignette for my table and leave my conservatory out year round.
I have been wanting to create a winter village inside but I probably won't find all the little details to complete it for this year. I decided to use what
I had handy.
This picture reminds me of window shopping. I love window shopping in little downtown areas...Carmel is one of my favorites to walk along at night and look in the windows. The lighting is soft like candlelight and the colors seem so much brighter.
I'm not finished with all my Christmas decorations yet..and my conservatory vignette is subject to change..but thought I would share what I came up with today.
The little snowman candle was a gift as was the candy cane plate.
I just used a simple white votive in one of my crystal glasses for more candlelight.
The little wire cloche was purchased at an antique mall for $2 and was actually in the shape of a little pot. When I saw it ..I saw a wire cloche in the making. I just stretched it into
a little cloche.
I used this sweet little bird nest
that I have out for spring/summer in my hutch. I added a berry candle ring to give it a Christmas look and topped it with the wire cloche.
I love the natural look ....let heaven and nature sing!
Hope you are enjoying decorating your home and finding new ways to use what you already have. Have fun!
