A closer look

Hehe, I am getting into the teasing game. I keep including photos in the blog that have something in the background which I will come back to in a later post. So, wanna take a closer look at what I have in my frame above the kitchen mantle? Ah, go on. You know you want to. Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on...

The frame is familiar, I know. The previous years I have always displayed a few Christmas baubles, suspended from ribbon in the frame. This year, I felt, it was time for something different. And since I had picked up this branchy heart in an online sale somewhere, I just decided to make it a bit more Christmassy.

The vichy-check ribbon stayed on. I only wound some red stars and beads on silver wire around the heart.

Presto! Easy does the trick. I love the way the shadow of the glass stars shines all red onto the wall.

This arrangement is really sweet and, actually, i don't think its just for Christmas. I will try and make one myself and it will beautify my kitchen all year round :)
