Meet Willow, she arrived this past Friday in a very tall box, a Valentine gift from my sister. Willow is a tall moss filled rabbit wearing a skirt of English ivy. She carries a moss basket. Today she is celebrating Valentine's Day and her basket is filled with dried pink roses she picked up along the path in the woods. 

Willow makes a lovely and romantic centerpiece for a Valentine's Day table in the study

Willow is darling with her skirt of ivy and red velvet ribbon is her favorite for Valentines's day. 

For the Tablescape

The day is cold with a soft snow falling. The moss path through the woods is covered with a light dusting of snow while Willow is covered from head to toe with snowflakes!

 Willow is enjoying being the center of attention for Valentine's Day. I think she is already looking forward to Easter and Spring. After all, her ivy skirt goes with everything!

I hope you will leave a comment, it's the only way I know you dropped by. 

Happy Valentine's Day
