I've always enjoyed my magazines! Beginning back as a newlywed in the 1950s, the best part of the week was a Friday night when we would occasionally go out for dinner; then stop at the newsstand to buy the new magazines. Over the years I've found them to be a great source of inspiration. Up until now, I've never tried to be a total copy cat. But, since Debbie at Debbiedoos has thrown out the challenge to copy a magazine picture; I knew I had to give it a try. Especially when I saw this vignette in the Country Living, November 2011 issue.
I told myself that I couldn't go out and buy anything new - just shop the house, the yard, and the refrigerator. Also, I wanted to change up the original vignette from Fall to Christmas.
Here is my copy cat vignette exchanging pine cones for the pumpkin and adding some pine sprigs into the leaf arrangement.
My entry hall table is smaller and the mirror above it is rectangular rather than round; and the vignette reinforces what I already knew -- I'm not the best at floral arranging. But, the experience was fun - thanks Debbie for the challenge.
