I have never decorated the top of the
large antique beadboard cabinet
in the dining room for Christmas.
I don't know why I never thought of
changing what I had up there for years.
This past Sunday I was inspired to
add a little something Christmassy.
I dropped what I should have been
doing to start something new.
I had all the elements I needed laying
around to put it all together.
I had a rusty iron window planter
sitting under my potting bench to use for
the container. It had lost it's bottom
so I needed to add a piece just
strong enough to hold the pinecones.
I have lots of pinecones. I cut a piece of
leftover hardware cloth to fit the bottom.
I added a small string of little white lights
and it was completed in no time.
I like how the basket of pinecones and lights
looks with the antique leaded beveled glass
window. The brass umbrella stand with
pussy willow has been there for years.
I added a few evergreen branches
and a small ivy wreath.
I didn't need to buy a thing and I did it
while I was still feeling inspired and
that made it fun.
It's nice adding a little something
repurposed each year.
