And you thought I'd forgotten !


Here it is finally , as promised I turned my daggy, plant hanging basket into a Christmas decoration .
The balls are just hung from it with fishing line , no shortage of fishing line in this house that's for sure !
It was a bit fiddly to do and the photo really doesn't do it justice , it really is stunning !
A bit tricky to take a photo of too as I have it hung in the loungeroom and everytime I took a photo the cricket was on in the background .
Not real sure whether I will post again before Christmas so if I don't I'll wish you and yours a safe and Merry Christmas .
 I'll leave you with what I've been saying to my kids the last few days , come here , come on , look at my pretty decoration !
Can you tell I really , really love this .

Oh this is lovely! And it inspires me to use my seashells. I could make this with shells and put it in the garden as a wind-gong.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Oh very pretty Clare. You did good!! lol.
Wonder what it would like if the hanging basket was painted with a glitter? or tinsel wound round and round it? Not that it doesn't look great just the way it is!
