Christmas Berry Compote

Collecting millinery and sewing strawberries for many years, I love to display them all together. Sometimes displayed in an apothecary jar, this year I placed them in a silver square compote. Glass, velvet, chenille, and resin berries look so pretty all together. The little velvet ones were used to sharpen sewing needles, and some were just made for decoration. Millinery berries were hand made and embellished with little seed pearls to mimic the seeds of the berry. All of the colors and different textures blend together to give my sitting room a little Holiday spirit!
