What's that saying about making a silk purse out of a sow's ear?
Well my Eddie Ross $ store ornament wreath turned out kind of pretty. I loved all the ones I saw on so many blogs "around town." Still, this just doesn't really feel like me.
And, my door is still ugly. Not much of a metamorphosis yet, however I am the only one on my floor to hang anything. And, this is my first year to decorate my door at all. Maybe others will follow suite? That could be a really nice change!
Remember those ice skates my Thrifting Fairy Godmother lead me to? Well, I had planned on hanging those on the front door. However, I didn't have a good spot for the wreath inside, so the skates came in and the wreath went out. I like the way they look hanging on my recycled drawer front coat rack. I spiffed them up with some new ribbon and a few picks from Joanne's. I had wanted a pale blue for the ribbons, but this is the blue color they had in the thin grosgrain. The skates are so heavy they really required strong ribbon. Now I love the bright color. Try as I might, I am not really a pastel kinda girl.
I think these will stay up all winter long.
That turquiose and red makes me happy!
Letters! I've got letters (of the abc kind) and for such a last minute idea they were a hot little contest with 65 comments! So thanks for your enthusiasm!
I'll email you shortly. In other news, Thanksgiving was a lot of fun. We went to two different random collections of "orphaned friends" and had a great time. The rest of the weekend was a crafting Lollapolluza. So stay tuned!
I am sharing my door and my skates on Metamorphosis Monday!
