Wishing a Happy New Year to all my readers, and all the best for 2014.
And, as in any post, there must be a photo. So here is my updated centrepiece, except for the candles entirely made of foraged materials from within a few feet of our house. As it is all natural, it needs to be refreshed every few days, and changed according to the colour of the candles. This one consists of pine, spruce, cedar, sedum and hydrangeas. The base was made from a branch of our sugar maple in the front garden, and the candle holder is a piece of birch tree next to our house that sadly had to come down.
