Crafting

 
I have been making some snowdrops and leaves this week to put on our seasonal table in the spring.  We have not had an area suitable for such a table up until now.  Over the last year or so I have been decluttering our stuff and this has freed up a space on a small table in our living room.


We were given a beautiful homemade tree for Christmas from some friends.  When I got it home and put it on the table I thought it was too lovely to only be bought out at Christmas.  So I have decided that it will make a centrepiece for our table.  In the spring I will take off the current decorations and add leaves.  Underneath there is a small vase in which we will put seasonal flowers.

I have yet to decide what else we could have, I think we will keep it simple for this year and add a small thing each year.

The pattern for the snowdrop is from this book and the leaves from this lovely blog.

  1. The Snowdrops are really lovely.

    I have been trying to find a good place to have a season table in this house too. That christmas tree is far too beautiful to hide away for the rest of the year, such a good idea to use as a table decoration.
