I used to be a crafty type. Not so much anymore....especially living with three males! But last week I took an old St. Patrick's Day wreath that was rather "tacky" and embellished with all sorts of countrified (is that a word?) buttons and ribbons and I tried to both simplify and glam it up. It is now hanging from our light fixture outside the front door.
After I removed the rather "tacky" embellishments (no other way to describe them), I painted it's kelly green-ness a lighter green followed by a blast of silver. Not wanting to spend a dime, I already had the piant in the garage from one of artsy's son's many projects.
Once dry, I searched the house for a silver bow. This was the best I could come up with without going off to a store for one: the handles from a silver gift bag:
Just a *little* festive. :)
Happy upcoming St. Patrick's Day! Please share your special plans for the day. And thanks to those of you who have been reading this blog. I realize it does not have much of a "theme," but that pretty much sums me up right now...adult onset ADD, which only happened after having children (all good, of course).
Smiles, love, peace and blessings,
