The most versatile way to change decor' in each season. I bought this green planter at Marshalls and added the ivy.A green hearth rug works well in front of the fireplace. A view of the details. Another look at the urn. I liked the old world design.Have a wonderful week!

I have said so many times (sorry to sound boring), I love green! There are so many lovely shades and I think green is for all seasons. The ivy and planter are so wonderful together. Thanks for sharing your home, Emelia. God bless.

HI Melissa, the urn turned out great. I love where you put it. What a great idea to put the rug in front of the fireplace...I really like that. You have great ideas...I enjoy seeing what you do...what you think when you are decorating...etc. It is always good to get ideas...
Hahaha...sometimes I think "Now why didn't I ever think of that?"
Oh my,
blessings,
Debbie
