A friend of mine, who I have to say I've never met but we've become great friends through the miracle of the Internet, has proven to be a big decorating inspiration to me. She lives on a ranch in southwest Texas, in a lovely rock home that has been her family for many generations. She is wonderfully talented for using indigenous materials to decorate her home. The photos I'm posting due her no justice, but I've had a downloading malfunction so bare with me.
I tried to copy her idea this year by taking a large, shallow, wooden bowl and placing antlers, leftover pine sprigs and pine cones in it with a ribbon garnish. She used fresh apples and pine cones, which I think is a better idea.

|I gathered rosemary from my backyard and made something to hang over the door so my husband can complain about it every time he walks in the door. falalalala|
I am sparing you anything made with bandannas or barbed wire.
And I would love to hear ideas you have as well!!!
