Tis the Season to be Jolly


As you know, I love snowmen so when I found this cute snowman frame I thought it would be perfect to add some Susan's Garden red poinsettias for a home decor piece I can put out this Christmas. Under the poinsettias is an open space where you could add a photo, but I decided it was a perfect area to filled it with flowers.  You can watch Susan Tierney-Cockburn's Poinsettia video at this LINK to see how to assemble these beautiful flowers.  Under the poinsettias, I added some Impression Obsession Pine Branches.  I also added a few other embellishments from my stash around the flowers.

Remember I posted a picture of my poinsettia plants from last Christmas.  Well in order to get flowers this year, I have to place the plants in total darkness from 5pm to 8 am every night for a month.  Finding total darkness was hard -- it has to be a place where not a speck of light can get to them.  They have to be in light during the day. We taped some thick black plastic around a table, like a skirt, that sits under a window in the basement, and place them under the table at night.   I am so excited to see if I really get flowers. If this works, I will post a picture of them.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a great weekend.
