for the love of olive branches

I am a picky eater and although I have grown to like many things olives are one of the many things that I just will not eat. The last time I tried they were rolled in cheese and nuts so I thought maybe I could handle them but alas I apparently I consumed them with a very rude look of disgust. However, olive branches I adore and not to eat but as a home accents. Their color and organic structure make any room just a bit more welcoming and can soften a room of clean lines.

I love olives too and I too adore olive trees, perhaps is because of my italian heritage I don't know, but there is something special about them and I find their branches elegant but not pretentious, I love their colour and shape and they are wonderful to look at.
Hope you are having a nice break :))

I have never so much as raised an olive to my lips and don't think I ever will but I'm with you on the branches. They add so much to the look of a room.

mmm, i love olives!
And these images, lovely! I grew up with Olive Trees in the front of our house and my chore was to pick up the olive that had fallen on the ground and drive! so my love of olives grew from the harvesting of them i guess.
Love the look of the branches in these rooms.
