Kitchen Window Wreath

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, needless to say I'm having a fun time decorating my new/old house for Christmas. Today I'd like to show you a little wreath I've made for my kitchen.
 I'll show you what I did on the window sill in another post.
My bay window was just screaming for decorations and a wreath seemed like the first thing I should poke up on the window.
 So I bought a wreath and went to town.
 The only things I bought were the little gingerbread baker and the red and white checkered ribbon.
 I could have kicked myself when I got home I realized the ribbon wasn't wired! But it was what I wanted so I made the bow the best I could, even though I couldn't make it poof as well as it would have if it had the wired edges! Live and learn! :(
 I had all of these little ornaments that I have used on my kitchen tree before so I poked them on my wreath. See the little spatula and whisk? Just the things for baking cookies.
 I tied on three little copper cookie cutters to dangle down from the nonwired ribbon.
I had two of these little stuffed gingerbread folks. They are very old.

This little wreath just makes me smile and my little grandson says "OOOOOOO" every time he comes over. That makes everything so right!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Christmas Is For Children

Christmas - is for children
Just for children
Grown up's save

Santa's found the chimney
That's for children
Like the reindeer
And the sleigh

That same tale is told
Every Christmas Eve again
We may think we're old
But our hearts can almost believe again

Christmas - is for children
But aren't we all children
Christmas day-ay-ay

That electric train
That no one could tempt papa with
Will someone explai-ain
Why it's all that papa will bother with

I guess Christmas - is for children
But aren't we all children
Christmas day...
