D laughed when he saw this cranberry topiary in my cart. But I think it looks nice with my Polish pottery bowl as a fall dining room centerpiece. Perhaps it looks odd in the bowl, but since I have a collection of the same pattern roundabout it isn't quite so odd. I don't think, anyway. Well... it was $2. Maybe I just need more stuff in the middle of the table, but during homeschool time, there are bunches of books and papers. Hm. Ok, maybe I am not sure what I am doing after all. I thought it looked just fine a minute ago! Now I'm thinking I need to find a brown bowl. Then, when I get the brown bowl, I will likely swear I need something orange to go with the brown and red for fall. Then... I will think it doesn't go with my Polish pottery, which is the central theme on this floor! Ahhh... the decorating troubles a $2 fake cranberry topiary can cause. It's kind of looking too Fourth-of-Julyish now to my eyes. I will probably have to buy $150 worth of stuff to surround it with so that I can achieve the perfect look. (I'm kidding, D!!)
Update: Ok. Going with first inclination and adding some family and candles so the plant doesn't look so lonely. It's actually a deeper, more cranberry red in real life.
