Kicking off the Holiday Season And A Winner!

November 21, 2012

The first thing that I usually do when decorating for a new holiday is to hang some wreaths on the front doors.  This year, the day after I have completely stuffed my face and think about how I will work it all off, the colors of the passing season will come down and be replaced with all signs of a new season. 

This years wreaths will reflect the simplicity and beauty of the season. Natural elements combined with evergreens and a slight touch of bling will grace our front doors and greet you when you come to visit.

Before they go up though, I need to push the pumpkin pie aside long enough to make another one.
 I wonder if that counts as a workout? 
I am happy to announce the winner of  my burlap wreath giveaway.
 I am So Vintage

Grateful for:
Family time in Florida
