There’s a place on the East side of our home where the green ferns grow. Now these aren’t just any ordinary ferns. . .these ferns hold a special place in my heart.
These ferns were starts from my sweet Mother. She grew them at the end of her deck on the North side of her home. I started with just a few and they continue to reproduce.
I have always loved ferns. There is nothing quite like them growing wild in the canyon. About 5 years ago I started picking up fern décor. My first purchase was this simplistic platter with the fern gracing the left hand side.
A couple years ago I found the paper pressed framed fern in a thrift shop. It had a gold frame and green matting. An easy fix with white paint and burlap.
The bottles came next. They usually reside in our half bath off the kitchen.
A recent trip to Joanne’s brought me three new items. All at 50% off.
I found this round box. . .
and the paper weight. I had picked up the designed ball on clearance somewhere and this morning (while cleaning out a drawer) I found this postcard of ‘fern canyon’ in OR sent to us in ‘2009’ by our daughter, Kylee
They are housed in a flower terrarium from T.J. Maxx.
Now back to Joanne’s and my 3rd find. Well, it was actually spied by my sister, Jeanne. Here she came up the isle toting it and said, “thought you might want this”. Why on earth would she think that? lol!
I love this pitcher and it made the perfect vase for some of my gorgeous ferns. Thanks sis!
Although a lot of my home is decorated Americana for the summer, I had to showcase my fern collection.
I put it all together in the living room and this is what I got.
I couldn’t decide which angle was the best. Hee-hee!
Thinking the sides are a little too even. Guess I’ll be doing a little mixing up. The decorating never ends here!
*NOTE: I moved the round box to the right side and that did the trick. Easy peasy!
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
