Braving Michael's to Make a Wreath

My Farmhouse, Wreath, Thanksgiving, Fall

About 5 years ago I made two wreaths, one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas. They are a little sad and have seen better days so I've been keeping my eyes open for some inspiration to get going on a new one. I think I've found it! I may brave Michael's soon and use a coupon I've been hanging on to. I have to go into that stupid store with a specific shopping list otherwise I get so overwhelmed that I just stare at all of the Martha Stewart crafting stuff, eyes glazed over, and walk out with nothing but a candle or something. It's sad really. On another note, we had some serious painting happening this weekend in the baby's nursery and I should have some progress photos up for you by tomorrow. My dad painted the crib a bright shade of green that I'm crazy for and my brother is slooooowly getting the room painted a crisp shade of white. Don't tell him I said that. He doesn't read my silly blog so it's just between us;) Until then.

  1. I agree that it is easy to get overwhelmed in those stores. I could walk the aisles envisioning projects within each aisle and not know which one to start.

    I love the photo - and that wreath is terrific!
