Spring Wreath
Spring Mantle
Spring is welcome to come anytime. I've been thinking a lot about the yard and things to plant. Snowdrops, johnny jump-ups, poppies, mint, lavender, creeping thyme, and foxgloves are just some of the ones on the list. But since it's still just a bit too nippy outside I decided to add spring where I can. Yesterday I took down our paper snowflakes on the door and got to work on a simple wreaths. 
With a big bundle of lovely eucalyptus (smells heavenly), antique white gypsy flowers, floral tape, scissors, and an old very large embroidery hoop - I got to work. Once the wreath was done, I still had more than enough eucalyptus to add some to the front door and the living room mantle. 
Oh yes...spring. It feels like it's slowly making it's way here.

The wreath is so delicate and pretty ... I really love the basket hanging on the door (so cute!). Spring is on its way here too and our snow is quickly melting away. Wendy

Using an old embroidery hoop is genius! It's completely charming. And I love it in the basket, too.
