Curly Willow

Hello everyone!

Remember, I said I would show you what I bought at the Yellow Daisy Festival last weekend?  Where this is what I bought.

Curly willow!



I know you are probably laughing right now because most people, that go to a festival where things are handmade, don't come back with something like this.  But I did!  This sort of decoration fits my decor perfectly since it's all natural and has lots of texture.  That is something I need with a mostly neutral color palette.  


I bought two bunches of it and it was a VERY good price!  I did not have any except a few sticks from another bundle I bought years ago and it wasn't as nice as this.  So, I'm very happy to have this!   As you can see, I simply placed it on both ends of my mantel.  I think it looks great for Fall too.


Now, the festival I'm REALLY looking forward to is the Country Living Festival!  Unfortunately, I have to wait about six more weeks for that one.  I promise to come back with more than just curly willow from it too.  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

That sure is a nice find! I think the curly willow looks wonderful on your mantel. It's great for Fall, but I also think it would work perfectly for year round decor. I bet you'll have a blast at the Country Living Festival! So many goodies there!

I totally see why you bought this...it looks gorgeous and it's so YOU (and me!!).

The hubby and I have talked about visiting Atlanta from Asheville (Is that where the CL thing is at?) Maybe some day!

The willow looks great! I have some that I bought last year. Haven't brought it out yet, though. I like it on your mantel. I wish we had festivals like that around here!

You are my kind of gal! I LOVE curly willows. So much so that I planted two of them in our front yard. We call them the Twisted Sisters!

I'd say you made a GREAT buy there and they look lovely on your mantle. xo Diana

Love your curly willow! I would love to go to the Country Living Fair, but I have a show this weekend. The Country Living Fair is less than an hour away from where I live. It is one of my favorite shows to go shopping at.

Looks great on your mantle! I bet you will find many uses for your curly willow. Looks like there was lots to see. The metal pumpkin looked mass produced.

Kelly,
They looks great. I love the texture it adds to the mantle. I bet that country living show by you is so great. So wish I lived closer. Have a great rest of the week.
