A Martha moment

I know we're way past this. It's Christmas. Move on already.

My Chinese guests from Thanksgiving just sent me this snapshot of my centerpiece, of which I was very proud. So let's just take a thankful moment for the happy coincidence of supplies that allowed me to do this on the cheap. Because that's how I like to do these things.

  • some previously used floral foam from a university event
  • the brass tray that I usually don't know what to do with because it's engraved for the 5oth wedding anniversary of G's late grandparents and it just seems like a creepy way to serve hors d'oeuvres or something
  • a bounteous yard of zinnias, berries and greenery
  • a pretty white pumpkin
  • $10 of Green Tea roses from Raley's
I was just so proud of myself!

Well that is really pretty. I love it when we can do things like that for next to nothing!
