December 2010 Advent – December 15th – Beautify an existing decoration

Our move this last year was rough on some of  my decorations. I had several wreaths in a big bag and they got crushed. Larry told me to just throw them away and start fresh… I am SO glad that I didn’t.

I picked up a few $1 sets of flowers (poinsettias and some snow covered pine) at the craft store (LOVE 50% off days!!!) And my mom brought me over a bow that she made – She is SO tricky and makes the most BEAUTIFUL bows with her bow maker contraption.
