For as long as I can remember, Mom has arranged beautiful holiday greenery in a Santa boot. I don’t know much about the origin of this vase, but I imagine a florist used it years ago when holiday arrangements were made and delivered.
There are things at Christmas that spark memories, and this little boot does that for me. Mom gave it to me years ago, and I just love it. It is cracked from all the years’ wear, but I place a cup inside to hold the water, as I am not sure it will hold water. And I wouldn’t want to do anything to stress it more. Then I fill it with holly or evergreen. This year it’s holding a plant called snow-on-the-mountain. I had never seen this plant, but Tracey Runnion, one of our talented photo stylists, was using it for a photography shoot and arranged it inside my little boot.
