Decorate with Apples

Over the summer I did an outdoor table top decorating project for the Oregonian Homes and Gardens. Styling with apples and hydrangeas. I thought...why not do the same table top decorating for the holidays. It's simple, it's cheap and you can eat it too. Total holiday colors of red and green apples. Just poke a hydrangea or any other flower that is in season in your neck of the woods into the top of the apple. Have fun.

At the Beach...Just Jump

Sometimes you just need to stop. Stop what you are doing. And go have fun. Go and fill your heart. My heart-fill is a tiny beach town, Oceanside, Oregon. Sand in your boots, a never ending smile, and jumping as high as you can!

Tulips for the Holidays

At the check out stand I was admiring the bundles of tulips for sale 3/$10.00. So I treated myself and bought some. I figured flowers are much better than that Butterfinger that was staring me down. When I brought them home they seemed more springlike than Holiday. So I grabbed some silver ornaments and sticks to create a combo... Spring meets Winter.

Holiday Decorations Up High

I know it's early but thought you'd like to start thinking about what to do about some holiday decorations. My creative buddy, Bret Hodgert from Old Portland Hardware and Architectural put this together. I have to show it off! Isn't it terrific? Just remove the prisms and replace with ornaments!
