Naturally Adorned


This is the vignette on the coffee table in the great room. I used the vintage style tool box that I bought a few months ago and filled it with the pine cones I ordered, some webbing I had on hand, a candle, and antlers thrown in, of course. All this sets on top of a vintage grain sack and some sprigs of Leland cypress greenery from the yard.














Sorry about the picture overload, but I had too much fun practicing my photography with this.

All this was thrown together just using what I had except a couple of large pine cones.

  43. I love it! I love using old wooden caddies for centerpieces. In fact, you've reminded me that I have one still in the storage room (I still haven't 100% unpacked from our move-sheesh!) that would be fabulous on our family room coffee table! Ok, off to copy you =)
