The adage is true about how you never have as much time as you think you do…How would you treat this Christmas differently if you knew it would be your last.
Um – do you know something that I don’t know Charlie…? 😉
Slow, slow, fast, fast: that’s how I think of it. I go along thinking there’s plenty of time and suddenly there isn’t.
Your front door? And made by yourself?
thought I had replied to this – but yes, and yes! Doesn’t take long and I recycle the wire and ribbons from year to year
How very artistic! And green!!
The holly and the ivy, it must be Christmas!
It’s creeping up, Brian, or so I am led to believe…
A fine festive creation Cathy and the red ribbon makes for such a cheerful finishing touch!
Thanks Anna – I just dig out the same bent wire and same ribbon each year and tie the holly and ivy onto it. Doesn’t take long – much less than an hour
That looks lovely 🙂 well done – loads of time (not)… I have a door wreath for wordless wed too. From a florist we know… I’ll have a bash at making my own next year 🙂 x
You are lovely and festive. You have inspired me, perhaps I will make one tomorrow. Do you have a Xmas tree?
It is so quick to do the wreath, Chloris, although finding berries on our holly has been a struggle recently – and the bent wire and ribbons and thin wire I tie the bits on with are just recycle from year to year. Having an early December birthday the tree goes up round about then, not real sadly, but a very realistic non-real one
“Of all the trees that are in the wood, the Holly bears the crown.” It’s almost here and I’ve just started shopping. I vow every year to look for gifts year round but always end up rushing around and ordering a week or so before the day. Your wreath is very nice!
A fully laden holly tree is indeed a sight to behold, although ours doesn’t look nearly as regal since we lopped it a few years ago!
This is so pretty! I esp. love variegated holly.
