simple brown, green, and gold...

An uncomplicated table display using three paperboard glitter bells that have been in my family for almost 60 years!  They are in really good condition, my flash photography doesn't do them justice.  The little ball ornaments are gold, and even the velvet leaves and ribbons are in decent shape. I paired them with a brass bowl (another antique) and filled it with pine cones.  My grandmother, and great-grandmother in their wildest imaginations could not possibly believe these could be on display via something called the world wide web...
