I love the fragrances fresh Christmas greens add to the holiday mood, but I hate how quickly a beautiful creation turns ragged in a matter of days. All of my arrangements are created
using oasis and are spritzed daily, but no matter how much attention I give the cedar, pine, spruce and holy branches, they start to wilt and dry up way before Christmas. I would so appreciate any helpful hints on how to preserve these beauties.
I wanted one of the restored factory cart coffee tables from Restoration Hardware for Christmas a couple of years ago. But, with a hefty $1,000 + price tag that just wasn't possible. My
husband being the sweetie that he is, decided to make me one from scratch. He cut and welded steel for the large wheels. He bought casters to use for the small wheels. He built the table top with pine boards which he distressed and stained.
