Making Something Out of Almost Nothing

After Christmas when I was taking the tree down I didn't really want to put away some of the stuff, but Love Bunny convinced me it was for the best since we live in limited space. I cried but relented, chicks. This was, of course, after I gave him the evil eye! But nothing to do about it...

...or is there?

During a visit by our home teachers from the church, we were given this HUGE canister of pistachios. Those are my favorite nuts. Love Bunny and I proceeded posthaste to diminish the contents of the canister. (For those of you in Rio Linda, we pigged out on pistachios.) Then when it was empty and I was taking the roses and little card stock flowers I made from off the tree I had an idea: rather than put them with the other paper roses I decided to fill the canister with them as a display and then come next year they'll all be together. Am I brilliant or what?! They now adorn the coffee table in our family room.
