Looking for a circle to make a wreath out of I came across these in Penney's.
Priced at €6 , they are silver and white balls on wire.
So I purchased a few and played with them, adding eucalyptus leaves, fir, pinecones and bells as that was what I had to hand.
I wove the branches around the circle and then wrapped the wire around the leaves to keep them in place adding a red and white gingham ribbon. I wanted a Gustavian looking wreath.
Here it is hanging on the chimney breast in the Living Room.
I do like wreaths indoors.
and on the front door
.............and we got snow this weekend, everything looks so pretty.
The garden, which was looking worse for winter wear, has a sprinkling of Christmas dust.
The back field
The wall with the pampas grass hmmm those Pampas fronds would be lovely in the wreaths.
and quite by chance this festive combination of Silver Birch, Green Shrub and Red Dogwood.
I would also like to take this opportunity to say Thank You to all of YOU.
To those of you who have left comments and sent me encouraging emails, to the veteran bloggers who stop by and whisper reassuring words, You gladden my heart.
To all of you who believed enough to become "followers", and to those of you who wish to stay silent and watch from the corners of your world.
I have enjoyed this journey so much so far and look forward to even more fabulous experiences and posts in 2010.
