The top of my piano looks beautiful in cream, gold, sage and blue, don't you think? A collection of meaningful items all work together and give the eye a rest from the bright reds and jewel tones of Christmas. My dried hydrangeas reside in an empty water bottle I brought back from England - remember?
The star of this vignette is this tiny woodland scene. It is actually a card made by a German company called Finkbeiner and found it at Downtown Home and Garden in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It is sold with an envelope and you can mail it! When you are ready to put it on display, you gently bend the wood veneer and fit the tab into the slot. I love how delicate the cutwork is and it really draws your eye in. I just re-watched the Shirley Temple movie, Heidi, and this could be the landscape leading up to Grandfather's cabin.The fact that this display will look just as pretty in January is a bonus.
