Rants, observations and home decorating from a woman with no time for a blog.

Decorating with {free} sticks.

It’s getting to be that time of year… time for sticks and branches!  Yay!  Free decor!  Just a reminder to keep your eyes open.

Today’s yard debris is tomorrow’s centerpiece!

Free sticks and leaves… fishing line and crystals… Fab Thanksgiving Centerpieces

Or simply add them to a container and set them around the house.

The sticks and the apples?  Free.

Also free, from a downed tree at my mom’s house:

Everything looks better if you put it in a champagne bucket!

You can add them to your chandelier for some fall fun…

Thanksgiving 2011

So don’t worry about what people might say… you go ahead and pull over and grab those sticks.

They called me “loco”.  That’s OK, I’ve been called worse.

I promise that you’ll be glad you did.  To see all of my stick ideas, click HERE.

I wonder what my dad would have done if as a kid and he told me to go "pick me a switch" (yes that happened) I brought it to him with some crystals on it, presented in a champagne bucket.

Sounds like a fancy fall spankin'

LOL -- you're a girl after my own heart! My boys hate it when I say "go gather a bunch of sticks for me" -- wouldn't you think they'd LOVE that?? I guess when you're a teenager, it loses its charm. :)
