Acorn Ornament

Good afternoon! Thank you so much for your comments on my simple little house. It's wonderful to hear from others who enjoy making their homes peaceful and comforting places to be!
Acorn
Isn't this glass acorn beautiful? My mom surprised me with it last week.

I added a ribbon bow and hung it from a knob on my kitchen hutch.

Sweet! What a thoughtful mother.

I love it Kelli. Every time I see an acorn I think of you....even when they were talking about the "ACORN" company that signed up people to vote....I thought they ruined a good thing with all their mess. lol....you get my drift...I think of you is the key here!

Kelli, you get such good ideas. I think the glass acorn looks great hanging from your kitchen hutch. I like the way you are an old fashioned gal.Your mom knew you would do something special with it and that's why she gave it to you. How sweet. Take care and have a nice evening.

Your acorn ornament is perfect with the ribbon and hanging on the cabinet door. You have a talent for knowing where to put something in just the right place. Simply beautiful!
Thanks for stopping by and seeing what Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel have been up to lately. I have fun w/them:)

Love it Kelli! I see your cake plate is empty now...those muffins looked so yummy the other day, so now I can why they are gone.

Jennifer said...

Hi Kelli! Our package of fall supplies arrived in todays mail! SO cute, thank you! I will post a proper thank you on my blog on Thursday.

I have been looking for a hutch or buffet/hutch for quite some time.
The type my husband would spend the money on is not in our budget now, and the type we HAVE the money are too poorly made. I have been praying and watching CRAIGSLIST!! I know I had the inspiration to get one from looking at your blog. Thanks for all the inspiration!

Kristina said...

The glass acorn was a really beautiful gift from your Mom. She obviously knows the sorts of things you like. My Mom is good at buying for me too. We have similar tastes. We can go in the same shop separately and like the same things. The acorn was perfect for you Kelli.
