Hey guys!! Happy Saturday to all of you!!  I spent all most of my morning cleaning Hurricane Gainer.  In the process I also did a few small revamps around the house.  I wanted to share this one with you guys because I am so excited with the outcome:)!  I went shopping with my youngest sister on Friday and visited a store I often drool over.  While most of their items are slightly out of my shanty budget, I did find one piece that was not only so cute… but also thrifty!  Here is what I did with it…
I found this great birch wood sleeve at PB for $12…. Woohoo!!  I bought it… not knowing what I would do with it:)  Today… while cleaning I decided it was time to change up my bar space a bit.  I was able to pick a few branches of cotton on our last trip to Lubbock.  I trimmed them up a bit, put them in a glass jar I found at Hobby Lobby and put the sleeve around it.  I LOVE it! Simple but oh so cute:) And… for those of you that don’t frequent cotton farms you can also find a very cute substitute HERE.  Now… for a few more pics…
Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great Sunday!

  1. This is cute! I still remember when I first saw haow cotton grew. I couldn't believe it popped open and there was a cotton ball!!!

  2. Very cute. I got some cotton when I was visiting my inlaws in North Carolina. I had never seen it in it's natural state in person. There's something very cool about the flully cotton and the dried stems. Great idea.

  3. Now that is just one darn cute idea. I guess if you couldn't find a cotton branch you could always improvise with a branch and some cotton balls!
    Love it, too cute!


  4. Cute idea. I actually have some cotton that I bought at IKEA and I have no idea where to put it. Thanks for the idea!!
    Have a great Sunday yourself!

  5. I think this is so cute. It reminds me of a snowy southern Christmas tree. And I love the name as you can imagine! Lol!
    Merry Christmas and hugs…Tracy

  6. How cute! I plant a little bit of cotton every year so I have some to decorate with. Love how you made simple so pretty.
