Leaving Out The Middleman

It's the new moon! It's the

I don't think I've ever shared a picture of what I do with my orts at the end of the year. The one on the left is from 2010 and the right is last year.


This year I'm skipping the vase in the middle and going straight to the ornament. And for a change from last year's Beige Carpet Boredom I'm going to go with Finishes From The Drawers for background.


This month features olives and oranges from Adriana B, blues and greens from Lily and white from when I accidentally made a knotted mess and couldn't be bothered to untangle it.

Oh, and that's Mirabilia's Bluebeard's Princess as this month's FFTD.

Edited to add: I got the clear ornaments from Michaels just after Christmas.
