Sparkling Strings

Last weekend we visited
an event
in a furniture store.
At the entrance
two big beautiful vases welcomed us.
So simple and sweet:
The finest ribbons
the leafless branches.

It made me think of
our tree
in the middle of our lawn.
Last year I knotted
lamina paper
hope this is the right word ..
in all shades of blue
in the tree.
When the wind blowed
or the sun rays
touched the
they sparkled
Too bad I did not take pictures that time
this year it's a little too late because the buds are almost bursting out!

Spring pops up everywhere around here!

  18. That is indeed a lovely idea and it so versatile too.

    I hope you don't mind, Saskia, but I have a little "award" waiting for you at my blog.

    Best wishes for a wonderful week,

  19. Good Morning Sweetie...
    Isn't this just beautiful? Oh how pretty that would be in a room.

    It wouldn't be hard to recreate Saskia, you could use artificial roses, or make some out of create paper and take ribbon and wrap a few branches and hang some vintage ribbon from others. Use a few branches from your tree. Ooh if you give it a try, please photograph. I don't think I could wrap to many cactus that way here in the desert.

    Beautiful post sweetie. Thank you for sharing. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  20. What a fun and unique idea! Have a lovely rest of the weekend...

    P.S. Thanks for stopping by to visit me!
