After my first Periscope (#CurtainQueenScope) Friday morning, I completed the project I was working on while live video was rolling. Creative juices were flowing, so I decided to play with the evergreen tree I got on clearance at Tuesday Morning after Christmas. I’d been thinking of making it into a kitchen tree.
You saw the tree in the Woodland Rustic Tablescape post. (Ahem…still sipping my coffee from the Periscope, too. 🙂 )
Old cookie cutters make perfect ornaments for a kitchen tree.
Right? Not sure the snow-covered pine cones should stay after the spring thaw. It’ll be here before we know it!
I found pieces of old silverware, too.
Do you have other ideas for kitchen tree decorations? I’m sure to run across more things as time goes by.
As always, I snapped a quick picture of the tree with Patricia Neely-Dorsey’s books.
You often read her poetry in my tablescape posts, like this one recently in the Avid Reader Valentine Table.
Patricia Neely-Dorsey, our local author/poet/speaker, is Mississippi’s Ambassador for celebrating the south and promoting a positive Mississippi.
She shares many of my posts on Facebook each week. Perhaps you are here because you followed a post Patricia shared.
You can like Patricia’s Facebook page here and see first-hand all the support she gives many of us in Mississippi. Thank you, Patricia, for being my biggest Facebook cheerleader! You’ll want to check her website, as well.
Here are Patricia’s books I’m often quoting – and links if you’d like to order them from Amazon*.
Another talented woman I’d like you to know better is Bridget Sharp. You may have noticed her photography ad in my sidebar.
If you’ve been to Bridget’s website, you know her talent. How blessed are those brides and grooms she’s captured with her lens!
Bridget came here to our home and took pictures of us a few months ago. We had a blast! She is so much fun to work with, and she knows her stuff! This was her favorite picture, but I couldn’t decide where it was appropriate to include it on my site, so you haven’t seen it before today. What a great reminder of our fun day!
If you’ve been to my About page, there are more pictures she took that day. Oh, also…Bridget squealed with excitement when the horses starting cutting up in the pasture.
She got up-close and personal with Davy, our Mr. Friendly Inquisitive Teen-age saddle horse. He nearly licked her lens. Ha!
Ha! Isn’t that funny? Also in the mix was a blooper of HH and I “horsing around”.
Not my best side, but Bridget sure caught us in a flirty moment.
So, all this to say that if you live around North Mississippi area, Bridget comes highly recommended by me and others for your photography needs.
And, if you don’t mind, please tell her I sent you. I know she’d want to know. 🙂
