problem solving with some figs
someone brought a great surprise home last night...figs wrapped in brown mail paper, tied with a white grosgrain ribbon. i should have photographed them wrapped up...darn.
anyway, once i unwrapped them i realized they were over 4 feet long. and the branches are as thick as a 100 year old redwood....and we still are not equipped with our city dwellers chainsaw. so..the challenge was to find something that could support them. i tried several vessels, but none quite right.
then i remembered this old container i recently bought at the french sale. the poor guy has been sitting in the corner for over a month now.
the container was an investment, but the great branches that should last several weeks were only $18.00. bargain...go get some.
i think these bright green, unripened figs compliment this old zinc container. and for some reason, they are making the dining room look huge...... i guess big looks big.
