And the winner is...
How cool is it that Sarah won on her birthday and the giveaway post was on my birthday?! I hope she gets the luggage, too. She will need it for her upcoming adventure- teaching English in Asia! Best wishes to you, Sarah!
Thank you all for the birthday wishes! I had a lovely day.
Bill brought home a dozen of these beautiful roses.
I've been quiet on the blog this week, but there has been some crafting going on.
I totally enjoyed crocheting this wreath from this Goodknits tutorial! I'm not completely happy with the bow. It looks a little 90's to me. It's just pinned into the styrofoam, so I can easily change it out.
I bought a cheap green wreath at the grocery store and embellished it with a variety of greens from my yard. Again, not happy with my bow. It is too white. I found a spool of silver ribbon in the stash, so I might switch it.
I learned this technique from Martha years ago. I make little bundles of the various greens, then wire them to the base wreath. We cut down our white pine last spring, so I had to get some from Girl Scout camp last weekend! The branch was already down, so it was OK.
More greens on the front porch...
and on the back deck.
I love this gold bow!
My big birthday gift was new living room furniture. I need to help Bill dispose of the old sofa that was literally falling apart. We're off to the dump!
