~Curly Willow~

Summer has officially started for my family and I hope to be able to enjoy some lazy days.  Although I will be very busy out in my garden and finishing up many projects around the house. 

I wanted to join Donna over at Funky Junk Interiors for her Branches, Sticks and Twigs Saturday Nite Special linky party today with a corner in my living room.  Plants don't do very well in my house, so I tend to like to use branches in my pots and urns.  This rusty urn is perfect to display some curly willow which really stands out in front of white shutters.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Here is a photo of my two girls on their big days last week:-)

Also linking up with VIF and Feathered Nest Friday

  8. Oh! That cast iron fireplace makes a lovely niche for the Mary figure! Wherever did you find it? I've been looking for something similar to build a fireplace for Hubby's study.

    The whole arrangement is sweet, with the contorted willow sticks and the subdued colours. Very nice.

  19. Your girls are just so beautiful Kathleen! I think they must make you smile every time you see those darling faces : )

    I love it when I get to look into your home and see how beautiful it is. The curly willow makes such a statement in your urn.

    My favorite thing abut your decorating style is how you can combine texture and neutrals for a beautiful effect!!!

    I am glad to hear that Oregon is finally getting some good Summer weather. It is blowing so strong out here today in my part of Idaho that I hope I'm still in the US tomorrow and still have the same zip code.
    hugs from here...
