Porch Greenery


With the cold weather and rain we've been having, it suddenly felt past time to remove the pumpkins from our porch and add a few winter touches!  Off to the farmers market we went and home we came with fresh wreaths and greenery. 


The wreaths were so beautiful and fresh in their simplicity that I left them just the way they were.  
(We used removable 3M hooks on the porch to hang the wreaths.)


 The farmers market had a lot of greenery clippings and kindly invited us to take as much as we liked, so I had plenty to add here and there, inside and out.  I love its crisp wintery scent.




 With it only cold on Saturday, we bundled up and ventured outside for some fresh air.  I decided to try my hand at making a wreath with all the extra clippings I brought home... well, needless to say, my amateur attempt didn't look even a fraction as lovely as the ones we bought, but it was a festive enough touch for the back of the house (smile).

Happy December!

  5. I love the fresh wreaths - they smell wonderful. I purchased one for the front door and only added a pretty ribbon. Inside they are all fake as the fresh pine makes me cough.
    Have a fun week.

  7. The wreath you bought at the market is pretty and picture perfect, but the one you made is more charming. I made a wreath one year out of pine cones. It wasn't as pretty as one I could have purchased, but I was proud of it because I had made it (and it took a good deal of time to make!).
