perfect for books, trays and snuggly feet...

A manzanita branch that I had  placed

in a silver bucket and hung an ornament display

The ottoman turned out so great Kate! The green just pops and the patterns on the pillows are all so complimentary and subtle, not overwhelming in that space. Perfect harmony!!

That ottoman is the perfect size....and the 'before' fabric was prolly more appropriate for a 70's kitchen window, eh? You made it loverly :)

We got a bit of warmth today, so I went out an hacked down some branches and sprayed them white to use as an ornament or perhaps vintage card display for the holidays. Won't be as pretty as yours, but it sure gives me inspiration!

Love when you can Mi4M Kate :)
