Centerpiece of the Month~Roundup

It is time for the roundup of the Centerpieces of the Month for January. We had some great entries. I think Nature is the name of the month.




A bowl of satin white roses from the Nature Trail. You have to take a walk with Nature Girl. Her photography is amazing~ she has an eye for nature.

DebraK from The Bunnies Bungalow sent in this elegant centerpiece for January. The picture copied small, but it is red pears in a glass jar~ perfect!





Myrium at Once Upon A Tart sent in a photo of the promise of spring. A hyacinth that has brightened her table with its strong sweet scent in this dreary rainy month. So simple, and so perfect!

I do hope she hasn't baked up any escargot recently~


Holley sent this display of oranges. She says she has lots on her trees this time of year~ lucky girl. I love that she included the curley willow to recognize that it is winter everywhere else. Visit her at her Windy Corner USA.
We had a vote last month to see if we should do a winner every month. I think the consensus was that a button to place on the entries blog would be a good idea. So here it is...

Congrats to all the 'winners'!
Y'all show me your centerpiece for February.

I love the oranges so I vote for that one. How lucky Holley is to have oranges in her yard.

I loved the orange one.
I thought of you yesterday as I made some fried green tomatoes,is it true that red ones taste the same ?
