Sweet & Simple Inspiration from Pinterest

by - December 11, 2011

I saw this idea on Pinterest yesterday and thought it was so sweet and simple that I just had to copycat:

A clear mason jar filled with some fresh pine cones and an evergreen branch (courtesy of my neighbor's pine tree!) with a couple of candy canes.
I love the simplicity of it and the fact that I had everything I needed for a quick little holiday touch.
And since simple seems to be my word of the day, here's the cowbell and little frame at got at the estate sales this weekend.  A little gold vignette of sorts.  The bottle brush trees are from Home Goods.  I want to swap out the photo of the girl praying with a black & white one of my mom and dad but there is something about the little girl that speaks to me.
I bought these little acorns from Walmart last year.  Surprisingly, I did not see them this year.  Bummer because I would have loved a few more.  Anywho, I filled my little black tray with vintage sheet music and added the acorns.

Sometimes I like to keep it simple.
