As I am typing this post I look out the window and most of the leaves have fallen off the trees. Last night we experienced below freezing temperatures, but one of our Hibiscus plants on the back deck has 3 new blooms.  Of course, my Hubby tells me that I need to snap pics today...before their gone.  The sun shining so I'll wait until the blooms are bathed in sunshine!

Coastal Centerpiece for January

"2015" WILL be the year for 12 Centerpieces on our Dining Table...One New Each Month... It's January, so I decided this Month's Centerpiece had to have SNOW...to do this; Epsom Salt... WE Love Dining By Candlelight - so I selected 6 Candles; 3 on the Glass Block and 3 in the lower Snow. ~ LOVE ~ The Red-Ticking fabric liner in the Basket set the stage for Red Tulips. Aren't they beautiful? Behind the Black Flower Vase is the Longaberger Basket with the Red-Ticking Fabric Liner and then a White Fabric Napkin tucked inside. You can see the Basket better in the following Photos. I tried...
