A New Wreath

Or is it?


Well, the answer is:

Yes. And No!

Here's what this wreath was for many, many years.....

Look closely, it's hard to see. It's the best picture I could find....I have searched long enough!!

For the last several years the flowers were dropping off. It was looking very worn, to say the least. 

Off to Michael's and A C Moore I went. I considered keeping it red, white and blue  but decided a change was due. Believe me, I really don't know what I'm doing. I'm not particularly crafty. But I just do it! 


Nothing is glued down yet. I'm sure I'll be tweeking it for several more days!

My messy work station....
Location is great :)

Take a look at the play set. 

My crazy husband worked all day yesterday to get it in place and swings and slides attached. He moved that tower all by himself!! Where there is a will, there's a way. It helps to have some crazy, too, haha!

The kids are really having a blast on it this afternoon. 

There's still some hard work to be done...painting, for one. And mulching. 

Blessings to you!

I think the wreath looks great, especially against your blue door.
Love that play set!

Looks like there will be some happy playtimes in the backyard. Maybe a pool for those steamy summer days too?

The wreath is so pretty and shows up well. What a nice place for the children to play. You have a lovely place to work on projects too!
