I'm Still Copy Catting!

Hello, Dear Ones! Do you love Pinterest? I sure do and I'm sure if you love Pinterest you've seen this most gorgeous wreath! :)

I swooned when I saw it. Well...

Years ago I had seen an episode of Room by Room on HGTV and Shari (oh, how I miss those wonderful shows!) was making one of these wreaths with plastic balls and so I made one for myself. I bought a Styrofoam wreath, wrapped it with white ribbon and began hot gluing on plastic balls that wouldn't break. I bring it out each Christmas. I had a brilliant idea ~

I made my own version of the Pinterest wreath. I didn't have a white wreath so I just took my green wreath outside and sprayed it with white spray paint! Instantly my green wreath was now snow kissed! :) I was loving this stuff!

Then I took my plastic unbreakable wreath and tied it onto my newly white snow kissed wreath!
Oh, I was getting so excited!!

I like lots of color in my home so I knew I couldn't put on a pastel colored ribbon. I grabbed a spool of red sparkly ribbon and went to town making a bow! A big fat sparkly Christmas bow.
Almost done! My last step was to rescue a little birdie who was hiding in a drawer. She's nesting on the red bow now, having a glorious time and whistling "White Christmas"!

I just want you to know ~ I love Blogland too and I'm a copy cat and if I see something of yours I love, I just may copy it too! :) Hope you don't mind. The inspiration is amazing and now there's Pinterest. No wonder I can't get to bed at an appropriate time! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Christmas Time Is Here

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year...
