Styling the Seasons: December
The simple results of a lovely few hours spent in Liberty back in November are now adorning our mantlepiece on a selection of larch branches; acquired at New Covent Garden flower market rather than from a foraging session in the woods - although I did get up before 6am to go to the flower market, so that kind of counts doesn't it?
Who doesn't love a floral liberty fabric? And what is that magic ingredient that makes them just so... lovely?
As much as I would have happily used any fabric from their collection I made these really simple decorations by sticking to three designs; Capel F, Emma and Georgina, (the bigger print with the flowers on I can't find on their website).
And it was really a glue project rather than a sewing one... (I was one of the no-sew gang at the crafting afternoon - along with Lou, Sarah-Lou, & Heather)
The rest of the house features a mish-mash of decorations that have been collected over the years, which is just the way I like it - but it's also very pleasing to have this little arrangement on my bedroom mantlepiece. It means I get to gaze at it for a few, um seconds, in the morning before the day kicks in.
I'm really enjoying doing these styling the seasons posts - if you haven't joined in yet then surely January is the perfect time to start!? Go on - you know you want to!
Katy has done a round-up of the posts from some of the other bloggers who also went to the Liberty crafting afternoon and have their posts up already (I'm late, as usual!) - so many wonderful posts and ideas - take a look here.
Thank you to Katy & Charlotte.
