After a wonderful Christmas Day dinner,
the Christmas dishes were washed and put away for another year.
I wanted a simple centerpiece to ring in the New Year.
I chose white flowers.
Flowers to give the feeling and illusion of new fallen snow.
Beautiful white hydrangeas seem to fit the bill.
Love the way they look against the colorful sugared fruit tree.
There were these beautiful white roses at the market
and I thought they would be a perfect compliment to the hydrangeas.
I had a set of three white vases that I acquired several years ago
on a great after Christmas sale. (75% off) They were a part of a collection
which also included these angels, that are usually in the guest room for Christmas.
I strived for more simplicity in my decor last year.
I think I achieved it for the most part.
However, I think I need to work on that a little more.
I have always been a “collector” and it is hard to teach this old dog new tricks!
I want to take this time to wish you all a most Happy and Healthy New Year and
to thank you, my readers and friends for your support these past years.
As my granddaughter would always say, “You make my heart happy!”
Hope you all had a most wonderful Christmas too.
I am going to miss this sight soon ..
Happy New Year All!! Here’s to a most wonderful 2017!
