The True Story of the Three Little Twigs

This all started with three little twigs. I took three little twigs and added them to my foyer arrangement, and that started me on a rampage!!! The result --- I revamped some of the florals in my house over the past few weeks. Three little twigs started this whole mess!!!

I don't know why, but I have gotten to where I like to mix three elements into every arrangement I do.  I like to mix feathers, traditional silk/faux greenery, and then dried elements.  Since Christmas, I have revamped several arrangements around the house, and now I have added two more!!

Here's a closeup of the ones I shared back after the holidays once Santa had left the building!!  NOTICE the three elements in each one....
Did you notice the feathers, greens, and dried elements?

Here's a closeup of the piece on the mantle....Again, feathers, dried and faux greenery all mixed. 
 I love this look!!

For some reason, I think having the three elements makes the arrangements look more customized, and it really helps them fit with my decor better!!  Look at the arrangement by my front door.  I have not shared this before.  I added some more dried elements to it, and also added feathers, of course!!!

A little closer look....

Here's my revamped kitchen arrangement...I love having something tall on the island.  I want it to be dramatic, and this arrangement fits the bill perfectly!!  Again, notice the three elements in the arrangement. I think I'm stuck on creating things with the dried and feather additions!

Here's a larger view....(Ignore the crockpot on the stove!! DINNER!!)

I really like how this arrangement now helps the rooms flow together a little better.  I have been trying to pinpoint what my "style" is, but I swear I have no clue.  Sometimes I think it is Tuscan, sometimes I think it is more eclectic, then I have hints of traditional/Old World and also French. 

 I think I am a gumbo!!!!!! If anyone has any idea what I am, I'd certainly like to hear!!
