Just a pile of sticks

Back in September, you saw a pile of sticks and some of you wondered what I was going to do with them.

The time has come to reveal my plans for them. That’s right …. they are in a vase and are my table decoration for winter. Do you see the snow in the bottom of the vase? At least this snow won’t melt. It is a quirky display, but I love it.

I’ve been tagged again for ‘You Make My Day’ award! This time, Peg nominated me. I think we should all be nominated. Why? Because we blog and we all have something interesting and inspiring to say and we make someone’s day, somewhere in this wide world that we live in.

Have a great day!

Well this is very pretty and umm...what about that quilt in the background. That sets that non-melting snow off pretty good dontcha think?

Being silly, *karendianne.

I agree there are lots of girls that make my day as I am not sure we would still be here if no one responded and we had no one to visit.........

That quilt on the wall have you shown that before? I love it, could it be that you like blue colours?

Wonderful picture RoseMarie - love the quilt, and the arrangement is my kind of thing too!

Such a pretty picture! I love the quilt in the background. It's a perfect display for winter.

With that gorgeous quilt in the back you need something sparse. They go well together-very clever!

You always decorate your home so nicely Rose Marie. Thanks for giving us a peek;-)

A lovely display! I can't wait (well, I can -- but you know what I mean) until I can put things like that out again. If I were to do it now -- um, can we say a nice weapon in the hands of a 2yo?

I like very much the background (quilt) of the photo!

I've been noticing how vibrant your blue quilts are and while I didn't set out to make a blue quilt, I seem to have acquired more blue fabrics...hmm, do you suppose it's due to a subliminal message transmitted from your blue quilts? Whatever is happening, it's all good!
