Magnolia Market Cotton

Magnolia Market Cotton

I was so excited to open up a big box from Magnolia Market on Christmas morning! I have been a Fixer Upper fan for years and this was just as good as finding my Rainbow Care Bear under the Christmas tree when I was a little girl. The great big box was filled these beautiful cotton stems, a subscription to their new magazine The Magnolia Journal, and few other surprises I'll be creating with too! 


As any Midwestern knows winter light is quite sparing and quite blue. Hmm... I wonder if that's why is called "The Winter Blues"? Anyhow, I loved these cotton stems in my cream and white ceramic pitchers, so I simply had to save these still life shots. Check out my Before and After below to see what a difference a light texture on a brightening blending mode can do! Then share your texture natural or enhanced in this week's Texture Twist.

  1. I will be exploring the Magnolia Market link--thank you! Your photo editing is wonderful. I'm afraid I'm pretty pedestrian in that area and have a lot to learn.

  2. They look like little snow caps. They are lovely to look at, and love the contrast with your white pitcher.
