These numbered lights I bought in January on sale. When I took up the Christmas decoration from the basement a couple of weeks ago, I found my forgotten candles. I didn’t know where to put them and placed them in the red bowl meaning to look for something more suitable, but then realized that I was more than happy with having them in the red bowl.
This one was inspired by several Christmas magazines and interior design blogs I have seen. Seems this year has been the big zinc year with houses made of zinc, pots and lanterns. I didn’t want to spend too much money on this years decorations so instead of buying a zinc box I used last years ginger cookie box. I added moss, pine cones and an old red glitter packaging bow from Ikea and *tadaaaa*, one more decoration done.
This Christmas collage is lifted from Ali Edwards' holiday project from 2006. I used some papers from my stash and some I bought brand new. Cut, mixed, and placed into a black frame. I love this collage idea and think I’m going to make three more, one for each season. It’s a simple way to make a change in our living room without having to spend too much money.
