Flamin' and fresh

Hey! I hope you all are having a great week. Thankfully, it is already Wednesday night, so the end is in sight. We have two more weeks of school before spring break and I am ready. The warm temps have not helped the kids focus, shall we say, at school.

There are a few new followers out there, so welcome! Please let me know of your blog as well...I always follow back.

I have a new centerpiece for our kitchen table. I've updated a bit since the warmer weather has sprung, but I noticed the other day that I still had my spray-painted pinecones in my candleholder. Usually, I put colored eggs in, but since we haven't done ours yet, I decided to do something a bit different.

Lately, I've been trying to focus on using materials I already have--rather than going out to buy new stuff each time I want to do a project. I'm actually going to do a project this weekend and I think I have everything on hand already. We'll see how it goes!

For this particular project, though, I did buy some sheet moss. I used a 40% off coupon, so it was fairly cheap.

I also picked out some rocks from my rock bucket. This is where I put rocks that I dig up from the garden. Since this is a fairly new house, there are a lot out there in the dirt. : ) I chose some that I liked and washed them off.

I originally meant to hot glue the moss onto the rocks, but decided that would be rather labor-intensive. So instead, I layered the rocks and the moss.

I laid in rocks and moss, then adjusted it until I liked the arrangement. I added until it reached the part that holds the candle.

Add in a fresh candle my SIL gave's lavender. Yum!

On the table.....

And with the light.

I like the organic look. was super easy. : )

That looks like spring in a vase! Did you get that from Pottery Barn? I saw something like that a few weeks ago.

I have to admit I didn't notice this on our table.

I am now going to inspect every room and take mental notes.
