Spring Wreath: Forsythia
I’m not a huge fan of fake flowers because most of them look so, well, fake. I do like the color and they’re more palatable if I mix them heavily with nice fake and dried foliage.
I had this rather wimpy forsythia wreath that didn’t do it for me. Pretty color but I like it much better now.
I added LOTS of good looking fake statice and some other fake foliage and dried kitty willows. (I know what they’re called, but those are google hits that I can do without. Let’s not go there m’kay?)
So full, fluffy and fabulous! She looks so real; I could sneeze.
I have to give a little shout-out to the girls who made my ping-pong ball lemonhead wreath
. Some of you told me about it. Some of you didn’t and I found you anyway. I found Laurie from Gillmore West
, Cassie from Ames Castle
, Lindsay from Passenger Seat Kind of Gal
, and Lemon Annie
wrote about it. Anyone else? I’d love to see it!
My favorite, though, is the heartbreaking lemonhead wreath story from Jennifer at The Magic Brush. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. So I did both. I adore you, Jennifer, for posting about this!!!!
Did you know that Melissa from The Inspired Room is giving all of us procrastinators a deadline with her Procrastinator Party
? This is just the nudge I need to get moving on a project that I’ve had planned for months.
I have big plans for this $15 Goodwill headboard. Now I’m committed. I have two weeks to get it done or Melissa will fly to Pennsylvania and kick my tail.
