My Christmas Plant Stand

I wanted to share with you  my boring plant stand around the house.  I love this plant stand, because my daughter made a mosiac on the top of an old stool and repurposed it for a plant stand for me, but it just looked boring compared to everything else in the house that is over-decorated for Christmas.  I just didn't know what to do, until I found some ideas out in blogland for my house.  What I found was someone (and I'm sorry I don't have which blog, because I looked at so many! If it's you, please comment and I will link you happily!) had put decorations, ornaments, etc. on their lamps. Here's the close up of the sign I tied to my lamp with a ribbon.  Well, I didn't feel that was finished yet, because the stool still wasn't Christmassy yet.  (Is that a word?)

My Christmas card basket (handmade by the way - my aunt always finds me wonderful things like this!) didn't really have a place this year - so here it is!  I tied it with wire ribbon leftover from last year's gift wrapping.  I thought it was too beautiful to waste, so kept it, much to my dh's dismay!  What do you think?


  1. Looks really nice. I might throw a few Christmas tree balls under the plant. I love the mosaic top on the stool. And you're so lucky to have a real handmade basket!!

  2. It turned out way to cute...Merry Christmas

  3. How fun is this? Love the card basket, and that mosaic top is pretty special too! Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. Very cute! And thanks so much for linking with 2nd Time Around!


I love to hear what you think! Thanks for your feedback!
