Belinda at Wildacre has left her Christmas jug of twigs on display http://t.co/Yyd2IU4e. This has made think about the birch twigs I used to display my hand sewn tiny hearts at craft fairs. I cut them down and put them in a cream metal jug. I like the contrast and it suits the room too.
I also have bottle of grasses collected from the garden in the kitchen.
For a touch of summer this bowl contains dried flowers and leaves from my garden
