Christmas in a Teapot….and a booth update.

I am still working, and will be all week, on Christmas arrangements and wreaths….

…..for our neighborhood Craft/Artisan Show.

If you live in the Raleigh/Chapel Hill area, let me know if you are interested in attending…

…..there will be so many beautiful things there!

Christmas Arrangment in Vintage Silver Teapot

I took this vintage silver plated teapot and filled it with holiday hydrangea stems and other greenery…

It was an easy-peasy arrangement to do…

Gathered my floral stems and greenery…

Then proceeded to place stems and greenery in the teapot…

…..the greenery was pulled apart from the stems for fillers.

Note:…the first one turned out a bit too big…so I cut the stems down to make it smaller.

I love these stems…I have used them in prior Christmas decor..

Well another arrangement that I love so much that I would not be upset if it did not sell!

Kristen (Sophia’s Decor) will also be there with her beautiful things she creates.

Yesterday I gathered a couple of vintage items from Melville Trading in Mebane, NC….

…..where Kristen and I share a booth.

Amy and I shared a booth; however, she required more room and set out to set up her own space there.

So, if you are in the Mebane area…stop by Melville Trading in downtown and pay us a visit.

There is some great Fall inspiration out there today.

I feel any faux floral arrangements look so much better….

…..in a very interesting and sometimes “out of the box” container.

If this does not sell at the show…I think I will keep it for myself!…
