Tablescape Thursday...coming up!

OK-- so it is time for tablescape Thursday at Susan's. I can't remember what her rules are so if I am not obeying them....then it will be my Bad. This is not an eating tablescape....just a tablescape. I love bare branches and this branch fell off our oak tree and it has some acorns still attached and some mossy growth on it. So I put it in a green vase and it just gives me a neat feeling.

The above is how it looked before the cardinal landed.

I love cardinals and tonight my hubby and I enjoyed watching the sunset on the patio with a glass of red wine surrounded by a ton of cardinals at our 3 backyard feeders----such a nice Fall evening.

  5. Rules? Are there rules? I love using sticks and twigs in the house. I tried to drag a tree home from the Michigan dunes last week, but my husband finally made me leave it.

    You asked about the berry spray, I've had it for years, probably came from Michael's, not sure.

  10. Love the oak branch, I am on the hunt for acorns this year, but to have a branch with some still attached, just to much to ask for here...

  17. I am sending this over to my sister in law, Kim. She collects things with cardinals and they are especially prevalent at Christmas time. That little pop of red on the branches is perfect.

  18. I think it looks great ... very sculptural! The acorns and mossy growth enhance the organic quality. I love cardinals ... especially on snowy days!

    You asked how I dried the roses. I'm almost embarrassed to tell you. They were white flowers, a grocery store bouquet, left in a vase ... ignored for several days. The water evaporated and they turned brown. But I touched them and noticed they were holding their petals. They should have been suspended upside-down I'm sure ... but I just let them continue to dry (with their heads hanging down a bit) and have enjoyed them. ;)
    Bye for now,
    Bill

  22. What a gift you have to put things together in a pleasing way!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my centerpiece for my Ephesian study. I wanted to show that Christ frangrances our lives with His presence and then we become the aroma of Christ.

    Blessings.

  26. Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment.

    I too am so grateful that, though I was once lost in transgressions and sin, God was rich in mercy and grace. He drew me out of my pit of sin, redeemed me from the marketplace of sin, ransomed me, reconciled me, and restored me-placing me in the body of Christ, seated me in Him in the heavenly places, and sealed my eternal destination in heaven with Him and all the redeemed forever and ever.

    As I live in obedience to the Word of God and dependence upon the Spirit of God, He manifests the fragrance of Christ in and through me.

    Thank you for sharing the insight about the victorious parade and the fragrance of the incense. We have been captured by the love, mercy and grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are not "chained to HIs chariot". We are His servants and bond slaves-serving at His pleasure for the kingdom of God! He manifests the victory He has wrought on our behalf through the fragrance of Christ in and through us. Hallelujah! What a Savior!! AMEN!!
