what pretty ideas and doable too. GREAT new pic!! Blessings

Kelly Henderson

Sweet, sweet, sweet. And so is the new photo of you!


This idea is a precious one, and with three acres of timber, I have plenty of that "found" material!

May I also say: lovely new photo of a woman who is beautiful inside and out. I was so happy to meet you in Omaha. Merry Christmas, Charlotte.

The silver smoke is my favorite part too...a perfect finishing touch.


I love the woodsy look. Everything you create has such a special look.


Cindy (Junque Art)

Love these! Love the curly stem for smoke!


Well, gosh, these are charming too! I love things made with twigs. The star at the top of my Christmas tree is a big twig one, with an angel that my friend Liisa made in the center of it. Everything is so pretty here Charlotte.


These are Wonderful!

Dede Warren

Thanks for all the good stuff you share Charlotte. I love these two great pieces, and the fact that they are made of things we have nearby, or can easily find. They are so sweet!

Heidi Woodruff

Love both projects. I've got my spoons/forks (thrifted, vintage) lined up ready for glue in the star shape like your twig one! Fun!
Hugs, Heidi


Those are lovely. Lovely. So sweet and simple.

Lovely as always.

The Star is super lovely. The twisty pipe cleaner to connect the ends - great idea! I so want one of these for myself. :0)

Barbara Stillman

These are wonderful, easy to do projects! Can't wait to try them. Thanks so much for all of your inspiration that you so willing share.


Hi Charlotte, not sure when you're last post will be before I'm wishing you a joy filled one. Great new pic, yummy twig stuff(I'll be in Alaska for a little while and I think I'll collect some twigs from there and bring them back to play with) one of Claudine hellmuth's houses done, setting small things out here and there -puttig together a winter something for the front door...still have the small pumpkins out -should bring them in and see if they're still good. Joy joys and happy happies.

Linda Crispell

How very pretty. No reason to box them up after Christmas, they would look lovely anytime!


Lovely new picture---sooo you!!!!


Oh, my kids are all over that twig star. I had to make them wait until tomorrow to go find sticks outside to use for it. What a great idea...and something our 9 year old children can do independently!
