simple is beautiful

Next Christmas

Tuesday, December 16, 2014






Please pardon me while I start planning next Christmas.  I'm not doing another thing this year other than bake, wrap a few remaining presents, and enjoying time with my family.  But next year, I do want to try making a Christmas wreath from grapevine.  I've been seeing these free-form beauties for a while and they've really grown on me.  No two are the same.  All it takes is a grapevine base which you can pick up at the craft store.  Then add greenery which could come from the trimmings from the bottom of your Christmas tree or any other evergreen.  The more textures and different shades of green the better.  I even love the addition of red berries.  Next year...

  2. Rene I'm in the same boat. Time to savor what's already done and enjoy the time that's left because there is always next year!
