A Wreath For No Occasion

Three girls, 3 canons, 3 wreath forms, a table full of greenery and a bottle of champagne. Don't you just love Saturday mornings?!

My dear friend Rebekka had Hannah and I over for pastries and french pressed coffee for a cozy morning in on a chilly winter's day.

Bundles of eucalyptus, sprigs of boxwood, and blood-red roses adorned the wooden table in her laughter-filled dining room. We crafted, drank, got our cameras sticky from our eucalyptus stained fingers. Of course, we followed our wonderful morning the best way we knew how. A trip to the Nashville flea market, where many treasures were discovered (and some purchased).

If you'd like to make your own wreath, see this tutorial. That's where we got the idea, but then of course we didn't refer to it. What can I say, not one for directions!


Christmas Forever!

In light of not wanting Christmas to end... ever, I thought I'd share with you our evening of decorating. Yes, this took place two months ago. Life has been a whirlwind of happiness, birthdays, new engagements for friends AND for myself and Danny, and general merriment all around! Even with all the excitement, I just can't let go of the Christmas spirit. As it was only our second Christmas, it's too early to call them traditions, but we enjoyed eggnog with nutmeg (atop Say Ooh wooden coasters!), warm chocolate chip cookies (none were saved for Santa), a freshly cut tree, and White Christmas on the projector. Soft twinkle lights set the mood, and I was greeted at the door with another new vintage deer ornament for my tree! We even transported fresh garland from New York to hang above every door.
I am keeping the tree until Valentine's. Again.
