There are few very original ideas left in the world. But we can give the ones already done our own twist, right?
Photos in my post about tassel necklaces made me see a really long tassel necklace on our staircase this holiday season. Like a garland of tassels! Instead of the traditional annual pine needle garland that’s boring me now. I’d never seen a tassel garland before. Do they exist? I searched Pinterest. Well. Just because I haven’t seen a tassel garland before doesn’t mean lots of other people haven’t.
Here’s a few examples …
