pops of green via neighbor

One night a few weeks ago, my sweet neighbor rang my doorbell,
her arms were overflowing with beautiful green trimmings from a bush in her backyard!
She knows I love flowers and natural greenery in my home,
and I was so touched that she thought to bring them to me!

I just plopped them in a vase with some water, and tied on a burlap ribbon.
lovely. easy. free. 

The branches are just what that table needed.

And now, two weeks later, they still look great!
They've faded to a soft green and still add great natural texture!

Thanks, Tiff!

Go ahead, now it's your turn.  
I bet some plants out back could use a little trimming.
Head outside and clip some branches, stick 'em in a vase, and take some to your neighbors!
Will you stick with one variety? or mix a few together? 
...both options will add a great natural touch to any room!
