This sketch shows a basket of artificial Christmas greens that I put on top of the china hutch. In addition to the evergreens it has groups of red berries, icy branches, an icy garland and little white lights. I love at night when it's lit because it gives a soft, warm glow to that corner of the dining room. I'm contemplating leaving it up for a while. I can argue that it's a basket of winter greens with all that ice. What do you think?
