Making a Fall Arrangement With Curly Willow

Do you like curly willow!? Well if you do, you are going to think I am a very lucky girl.

Hubby, and I took a walk in the park that is right behind our house.  This was not just a walk for exercise, but a walk to go gathering some branches to put in my entry hall.

There are two curly willow trees in our park so of course I had to bring home some of those gorgeously curvy, and curly branches for a touch of Fall in my entry hall.

I kept it simple by placing two cream plates on the corbels, and one large cream vase to hold the curly willow.

The branches have a combination of dark brown, light brown and a really pretty green.

The jury is still out on whether I think it is sculptural, or a little scary looking. 

Each day I am liking it a little better. A good blogging friend of mine suggested that maybe I should take a few branches out of the bottom. I think I will try that tomorrow!

Next time you go on a walk, take some pruners and you might be surprised at what you can create!!
