Magnolia Branches | January Refresh


Once the house is clear of Christmas and spring in Colorado is still months away…there is this in-between of seasons.


This is the time when I like to organize, still honor winter with textures and layers throughout the home, candles, pine branches from our land and each late January I splurge on Magnolia branches! They really do feel like a splurge but they are this sweet reminder that spring is coming (in about four months in Colorado) and to enjoy the season that I am currently in.


Remember, winter is for the makers and also for some magnolia branches:-)


I get my branches from Terrain. This is not a sponsored post. I just love them and wanted to share if you love them too!

    What a pleasant video to watch on a cold Canadian day. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Such a good idea….I like to gather budding birch branches at different times of the year…..but these gnarled magnolia branches with their plump buds…oh my!! So beautiful!!

    What a nice idea!

    Also, the outside of the pod is sort of velvety, and when they fall off, the two sides of it often stay together and look like angel wings. They’re nice to add to a mixed-media project!

    Thank you for sharing!

    Bonjour Jeanne, merci pour cet appel au printemps et ce magnifique bouquet de magnolias, c’est superbe !
    Un petit sourire pour le panneau dans votre cuisine qui provient de la France, du département de l’Aveyron, une très jolie région 🙂
    Prenez soin de vous.

    Thank you! This has given me a reason to cut some branches off my tulip magnolia tree, already budding, we have in our front yard. I live in Northern California just 5 miles inland from the coast. Normally the Magnolia tree does fine unless we have the late frost, then it will kill some of the new buds. This is a great way to save and enjoy them. We also have a white magnolia tree that is year round with leaves with huge flowers 6”-8” at least. No problems with freeze affecting the blooms because the leaves protect the larger buds.
    Thanks again,
    Lucy Tyson

    Way cool! I’m going to notice what the magnolias are doing in our central Texas area next time out.

    Love this reminder of the in between beauty. I paint nature, but flowers are a primary focus. This was very good for my soul and inspiring to my artist heart as I have been without a studio nor have I painted in a year due to life transitions and two moves. Thank you Jeanne for always being a faithful oasis. You inspire me to keep believing my art and life will fully merge one day.

    Oh and one more thing. Magnolias are a special flower to me. I love to paint them and we just moved to Waco Texas. So our life is all things “Magnolia” now…. 🙂

    I was inspired by you to order my first Tulip Magnolia branches and we have really been enjoying watching them bloom each day! Truly beautiful and magnificent! A new tradition is born in our home! Thanks so much Jeanne!

    Would you consider creating a class about making Mason Jar Floral Arrangements? My son is getting married in October and we are doing a rustic theme. I would like to make the flower arrangements myself. (Wildflowers, Herbs, Roses)
