I went to a favorite holiday event this weekend. One of my dear friends has an annual wreath making party at her beautiful country home. She hosts this annual event for friends and family on her wrap-around porch surrounded by vineyard. It was a very windy but beautiful day.
She hosts it open house style with everyone sharing their greenery, berries, flowers and inspiration. Plenty of inspiration from all ages….
this is G and she is a natural at making wreaths
Aren’t these BEAUTIFUL!!!! I love me some Hydrangeas!
So I decided to try to get my inspiration from MarthaStewart.com.
I loved the 3 wreaths running down the ribbon on the front door.
So I went to work using small redwood branches, pine with mini pine-cones and rose hips. I made 3 eighteen inch wreaths.
a little more colorful than Martha’s version but I love it. (I swear it’s round even though it doesn’t look like it in this picture) I had some wired ribbon that was a copy of burlap/jute webbing that I wanted to use.
When I got home I was pooped. All that creative energy is exhausting, I just don’t know how Martha does it. hehe.
So today I got to work, with my sweet husband’s help, hanging the wreaths on the door without using any nails ( no holes in our door). With a wreath hanger, 2 tacks and fishing line and lots of patience my creation was hung on the door. Please kids no slamming the front door.
Mini Martha front door
Yikes I need to fix that bare spot in the middle one.
So at least from my front porch “It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas” Next to conquer is my mantel!!!
This week has been busy….. I am wondering how work is going to start fitting back in my life. The physical therapist and Doctor gave me the go ahead to start in the middle of the month doing 1 client a day, I am nervous and excited at the same time. I miss everyone so much!!! Colton went down to visit his big sis and look at Chapman. Ky had basketball and he and his dad went pheasant hunting early this morning. He got 2. He is definitely a chip off his dads block.
I hope you all had a busy but fulfilling week! Tomorrow is a new week and a fresh start!!!
PS my sweet friend I work with gave me the name mini-Martha so I HAD to use it in my title.
