This holiday decorating season for me is definately the 'Year of the Wreath'. For some reason I need new wreaths for several places...the remodeled room for one and the front door for another. I love making wreaths, probably because they are so easy and always seem to turn out looking good no matter what you do. This wreath, for the window in the media/library was inspired by one I saw in a back issue of Victoria magazine.
I love the idea of adding red roses, I had a little trouble finding them this time of year...poinsettias, hydrangeas, berries, holly, but no red roses, and then I remembered buying a rose nosegay on sale when I was in the check-out line at Michael's last fall. I ending up pulling it apart, they were perfect for what I wanted.
You wouldn't know it from this view but my Sugar Plum tree is just around the corner, but that is for another post.
Do you have wreath fever? Or is your holiday decorating going in another direction. From what I am seeing, simplicity, natural materials, and re-using what you already have seems to be the focus this year.
Thank you for visiting.
