My friend said yesterday "Boy, things hanging off of sticks sure are popular these days!" It cracked me up, but its also very true. And I have to say it---things hanging off of sticks were popular decor in the 70s as well (and I know that because I was a kid in the 70s). I decided to tap that rustic retro vibe and hang some stuff off of sticks in my own home. Above you see a nice smooth piece of driftwood I found and three vintage ornaments I recently thrifted. At first glance they look like doilies---turns out they are clever knotwork:
I used the same trim to string another batch of thrift store doilies for a homespun garland:
I also took some pine boughs and a stick I cut from a tree in my yard and propped them in the corner. I hung some ornaments off of the stick---a mushroom, gnome and squirrel, all gifted to me by my mother-in-law. She knows me so well!
Even Tiger Baby got in on the decorating:
