Wreath Repeat

After Christmas last year (2009)I thought I would be smart and head to Georgetown and take a whole slew of pictures of Christmas wreaths and decorations to use in Dec 2010. Well I did - and carefully edited and "stored" them on my hard drive. Maybe I should say "lost" instead as 5+ hours of searching on this computer and the other computer I thought I may have used yielded nothing... So here's a reprise of my Beacon Hill decorations taken in '08 and posted in '09. Yes, the missing - awesome Georgetown photos are driving me nuts...This would be easy to do - spray paint branches red and place in containers w/moss.

Love this creative peace sign wreath!






More branches - simple and doable.






**EVENT: If you live in the DC area, Tudor Place is holding it annual Holiday Wreath making workshop with fresh boxwood, greens and magnolia cut that morning on their property. I've gone for 4 years and it's really great fun. More info here.

Great inspiration! Now I'm heading for the attic to dig out my Christmas decorations. So by tomorrow everything should be in its place :-)
Have a nice day :-)

I hate when that happens...so annoying. In any event, I love this collection. The first wreath/home is my favourite and I also love the birch logs- such great holiday inspiration!

Love all of these images. I am such a Christmas person. I think the pink and red ribbons are beautiful on the first gorgeous wreath, and I am in love with the window box decorations.
Thanks for sharing, Michele!

Such great inspiration. Love the one with the ribbons dangling and also the twigs in the window box looks so elegant and sophisticated.

I'd better get started on my outside!!!

This is a great post! I love looking at homes that are decorated for Christmas! I especially love the branches with moss. I will have to try that this year!

WOW...such inspiration!! Adore the post office window box.

VictoriaArt said...

This is a wonderful idea! I do actually the same, I take pictures of lovely doors, colors, decorations, all what I want to remember without getting the owners suspicious of my doings..... ( :

Lovely pictures! Love the purple wreath because bits so outside the box! I do sticks in my pots with greens. This year I added some balls for color. Love the cardinal used in the pot, cute idea!

Don't you hate that about computers? I'm looking for some shots I KNOW I took...where oh where are they? The Beacon Hill photos are still worth seeing again.

Roxanne Lumme said...

Very inspiring! I think I've just added Merrifield to my 'to do' list.....

Aliina said...

I love the first photo of the wreath with all the ribbons. I'm totally going to try something like it this Christmas.

I would love any comments about mine http://ramblesfrombeanie.blogspot.com/
