Welcome P.O.O.P.I.E.S!!!!!!!!! I'm so glad that you popped over from The Nester's. What a fun way to share our good and not-so-good ideas for using pretend plants and other stuff at home.
So I do love sticks! How's that for an engaging title? I've decided that my sticks qualify for the P.O.O.P.I.E. Party since I purchased them all at the store vs. tromping through nature and collecting them myself. More on that later...
But it's true. I can't resist those bundles of dried stems, wheat or sticks.
I'll admit it. I buy sticks. But only when they're on sale. ;-) It's hard to find such perfect sticks in the wild. I guess that makes mine domesticated sticks.
I especially love them when something needs a little height.
Like my fireplace hearth. The trick to making an arrangement like this work is to put some of that florist foam in the bottom of the vase. It holds everything in place and makes arranging your sticks so much easier.
I'm a little sad though. As I was working this arrangement, I realized that I left my favorite sticks at the old house. Is it bizarre that I have favorite sticks? Yeah. Don't answer that.
Oh! And if you're new here, click on this post because I'm hosting an oh-so-fun giveaway!
