On cold winter evenings, a nice cup of something hot is just the thing. A few years ago Lenox "Winter Greetings" everyday started to appear sporadically at local discount and thrift stores. Thinking that the birds were cute, I started picking up pieces and now have a small collection. During the cold months, hese over-sized cups and saucers have become a favorite receptacle for hot soup and beverages. Today, one is holding dried rose hips from the garden.
I can never bring myself to get rid of perfectly beautiful poinsettias just because Christmas is over so one got used again in this week's offering.
The silver bits are spray-painted eucalyptus branches saved from a year or two ago.
Hoping that you're having a bright and shiny 2017!
