~ Ruffles and Roses ~ Christmas tree skirt ~


This morning on my way to Starbucks I stopped by my favourite flower stand  to buy some roses


When I got home I decided to put the roses in my antique french enamel bucket
I think it makes a wonderful centerpiece for my dining table.
I got inspired to create a tablesetting using my Ruffled Linens 72" Christmas tree skirt
It is huge and the attention to detail is amazing~Christiana is so talented.


I think it makes a beautiful table covering
I always try to use items in different ways than they were intended.
I just placed the enamel bucket right on top of the circular opening so you can't tell its a tree skirt.
The Ruffled Linens Christmas tree skirt is just too beautiful to not use year round


I have also used the Christmas tree skirt as an ottoman cover in my living room

(My Flora Doora, Thanks Jane! ) 

So far its been a wonderful start to my weekend...
Starbucks..beautiful roses and ruffles :)


( having fun photo editing with picnik.com ,this is my favourite image)

Thanks so much friends for your sweet comments on my last post
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!!!
xo,
Rachel

Hi There Rachel!

Your roses arrangement is gorgeous - I love the colors!! Thank you so much for your thoughful concern sweet! I have been so busy lately! Olivia's 5th birthday party was this weekend & we went to the American Girl Place on Michigan Ave to get her a special doll for her birthday. :) I think I was more crazy about all the cute shoes & accessories than she was! I am itching to get some baking & posting done this week - lets hope the sun stays out. ;)
