I have been remiss in my past posts about how I mix the Old with the New and telling you about it. That's one of my New Year's resolutions..... to tie that in along with daily snippets of Life at Cedarhill. Here's a fun and easy thing to do...sort of. :) I make tassels from vintage salt and pepper shakers. I loved this shaker because it reminds me of our golden retriever Ben. I think most of the dear people that visit my blog are into antiquing, thrifting and junkin', so I am sure you have seen lots of old shakers around on your hunts. Just add some fringe and cording to match and there you go. You will have something no one else in the world will have.
Alrighty then, I thought it would be fun to post photos of my amaryllis as it grows and flowers. This one was a Christmas gift from Kat and I can't wait to find out what color it is. I planted it about a week ago and it's already gotten about 2 inches high. Did any of you plant an amaryllis bulb? They are so gorgeous. By the time this one fades out then I will buy some hyacinths that are just breaking into bloom. Stay tuned for more photos of the growing stalk. How thrilling is that? :) xoxo
