HOMEWORK #8 – Bringing Branches In

Hello & happy Monday-before-Thanksgiving!! Short week- yay!! I was rushing around trying to close things out before the holiday and needed a super fast one this week so I cut branches and brought them in for a practically instant arrangement.

To check out this week’s episode, go here. 

To catch up on all the episodes of HOMEWORK go here.

I love bringing in branches from the yard… branches add such height and a little bit of laid-back/ easy drama to any space and are super easy to do.  (It only took me around five minutes- I did run because I was short on time!)  (I also borrowed Dave’s boots if you’re wondering what in the world are on my feet)  With Thanksgiving coming up- and the leaves falling very quickly outside!!- I thought it was the perfect week for making a branch arrangement so I got to work!

I decided to put them on my mantle…  Here’s a photo of my living room with the branches… When I was done I started a fire and enjoyed a seriously rare moment alone by the fire (with my dog) and some music.

I’d forgotten we’d moved out our fireside chairs a year or so ago so because Aurora was really into jumping on them so I pulled in a chair from another room and I’m loving this little spot now.  I try to keep something big and living on the mantle and branches are always the best up there because of the height.

The few tips I have for cutting branches and having them last as long as possible are:

  • use a sharp, clean set of clippers
  • fill up the container with warm water (don’t know if this is true but I heard this way back when and still do it)
  • cut the branches again under running water and get them right in the water
  • change the water daily (ummm yeah this does NOT happen at my house)

So anyway, I hope you get some time for this super-easy/ rewarding homework this week!! Cur branches are one of my favorite types of arrangements because they just feel (and are!!) so effortless yet are large and add some drama in a laid-back way.

If you make an arrangement, be sure to post pics on Instagram and tag them with #ididmyhomework  !!  I’’ll be sharing them in stories!! To watch. click here or go to my IGTV on Instagram!

xoxo

That was funny to watch you running! I currently have two vessels with branches in our living/dining area. When the leaves fall off I just point and say “It’s Fall!” LOL. We moved a couple years ago from a lot with 2 sad trees, to a country plot with 179 trees. We are in dry SoCal where for the most part there just aren’t the green backdrops of most of the country, so I’ve been in heaven with all the green around me now and the fact I actually have branches to spare all year long, bringing the outdoors in.

I just adore these homework assignments. So inspiring, knowing how busy you are and the “little” things you do that make a big impact. You show me this stuff (like planting bulbs) is DOABLE and I don’t need half a day or anything to make it happen. Thank you!!!

Hello there! This is my 1st comment here so I just wanted to

Hello there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
My weblog looks weird when viewing from my apple iphone.
I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

Guest

With havin so much content and articles do you ever
run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My blog has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off?
I’d truly appreciate it.

Guest

I’m amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging, and let
me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few folks are speaking intelligently about.

I am very happy I found this during my search for something
relating to this.

Guest

approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something.

however instead of that, this is wonderful blog.
An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

Can I simply say what a comfort to uncover an individual who genuinely knows what
they’re discussing on the internet. You actually realize how to
bring an issue to light and make it important. More people should check this out
and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you aren’t more popular because you certainly possess the gift.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However imagine if you added some great visuals
or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is
excellent but with images and videos, this website could definitely be one of the
very best in its field. Very good blog!

Guest

Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Taking a few minutes
and actual effort to create a very good article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and
never manage to get anything done.
