First,  let me say how creative all of you are and how excited I am to join Junkmarket!  This is my first humble offering.  I took a woven basket (from a flea market for $1.00), filled it with pine needles and pine cones from a tree in my yard, added some real red delicious apples from the kitchen. and I have a fragrant and decorative  Christmas basket.  Oh, and a pretty little birdy watches from  top of the handle.   As the pine needles begin to dry out, I replace them with fresh ones.

I love it when people use things like apples and other fruits for display. What a great use of what you have around you, ya know?

Simplicity isn't always easy to achieve. A lot of people find it so... difficult.

Welcome to the neighborhood. I joined not too terribly long ago myself. You'll find yourself so inspired!
