Readers, Welcome to my blog (formerly Birds, Blooms, Books, etc). I'm entering a new decade - my 70th and taking on the challenge of moving from Maryland after living there 46 years and learning about my new home here in New England in the Live Free or Die state - New Hampshire. Join me as a write this new chapter of my life.

Look What I Made

 


One Monday Emily gave me a lesson in wreath making.  It was totally different than how I'd made wreaths before.  You make little bundles of layered greens about the size of your hand or larger and then wire them to the frame, laying one bundle overlapping the previous one.  The ribbon bow I knew how to make.  

Didn't I do well for the first time? The wreath frame was 24 inches but it was the only one left at Joanns.  But as it turns out it will be perfect size.

Here's the big news!  This wreath will hang outside our new house come December 4th!

Yes, we found a house that meets our needs.  We now will be stewards of history caring for a house built in 1839.  I don't know the backstory of who built this house but intend to find out someday.

I love the wreath...and you remind me I have an old one tucked away in a plastic tub somewhere. For the last several years I haven't felt like decorating, but you've inspired me. I love your sweet new house, and hope you have a good time settling into it! Having a nice history to it will be fun to think about also.

...I've begun to make wreaths this week. Yours turned out great, I never have been able to make a decent bow! Bets of luck with the new house.

That's a beautiful wreath. I didn't realise you wanted to move again.

That’s a wonderful holiday wreath, Marcia, and will look wonderful on your new front door. Wreath making is fun as I learned last year when I made one with wine corks and this year I made another one for a gift. Congrats and all best wishes on your new, old home which looks lovely.

I am very impressed indeed! And Marcia, that is such a wonderful house. I love it. It would be so much fun to learn its history.
