Love your ideas, Ishbel. A cut glass vase sounds like another way to go. If you're allergic to cut flowers, there are some very real looking fakes around. Have you ever tried Eucalyptus? Or maybe incorpoarting sage or cinnamin sticks? Just some thoughts to bounce around. Wanted to mention pine cones, but read you have to bake them to get rid of the bugs, uggh.
We have a great hobby/craft store here called Michael's. They have every craft you can imagine. Also, fabric stores carry so many crafting materials. So happy this thread is here to share ideas. Thank you Ishbel.
