Centerpiece Evolution

It's fun to create centerpieces out of things you have around the house and to observe their evolution as days pass. I'm always adding or taking something away and the centerpiece becomes a dynamic part of the home decor. Today's table centerpiece isn't all that different than last weeks unless you look closely. A gathering of milk glass candy dishes become pedestals for mismatched antique bread and butter plates. Tiny birds nests and eggs with a glass dome atop create variation in height on the dining room table. Candles circled by napkin rings guard each end. Featured center is a cheese dome covering a porcelain bouquet of Old Country Roses flowers in a vase. A cheerful yellow bird adds accent and three tiny crystal vases are scattered throughout, waiting for some garden flowers to be placed in the scene. Maybe tomorrow, as there are little snowdrops and crocus blooming in the tea garden outside the door. . .
