Pussy Willows .... Mother Nature's Decorations

Pin It
It's spring and Mother Nature gives us so much to enjoy as everything wakes from its winter slumber.






Aren't these bottles a lovely color?  A friend of ours stopped by the other day and he had some of these bottles .... I am not sure what type of lager beer was in them but I was so surprised by the color, I asked him if I could have a few of them.  He just happened to have some empty in his cooler and was happy to give them to me.






That morning on my daily hike, I had noticed that the pussy willows were at their prime so I headed out once again and gathered some for a little, mini, kitchen, spring display.  That was a mouthful!


Dropping a couple of pussy willows in each bottle, adding a vintage linen and I have a cute display for little cost and can so easily be changed out as the seasons progress.  I think lilacs will be nice too, once they are ready!


Remember to give your loved ones a hug!

  3. I have searched everywhere for blue bottles like those, just can't be found in our neck of the woods. I want to make a bottle tree in my yard. Beautiful with sun shining through.
