After a great deal of thought and taking in all the changes in my life over the past eighteen months or so, I have decided that for the the time being, at least, I will only be posting once a week on a Monday from now on.......

I am sorry I cannot send out any templates, poems etc. that I may have previously offered in the past, the files have been lost and I have chosen not to redo them

Evergreen Place Settings

I saw this idea for using small sprigs of fir as a place setting  a while back on a “natural” wedding site and thought I could do put my own spin on it for Christmas.
Fir Christmas Place settingAll I have done is small punch a tag out of Kraft card, used a white gel pen for the writing, added a silver star and then attached the completed tag to a sprig of fir with some brown textured string.

And as I worked with the fir the smell was divine.
Evergreen Christmas Place setting with tagI am so pleased with the simplicity and overall result that I am now wondering if I could possibly use the idea as a substitute for a Christmas Card next year (always thinking ahead) …… so after my entertaining …., I am having a bijoux soiree, I shall put mine aside and see how long it lasts without shedding and stays “fresh”.
