So you can guess...yes, another wreath has been created. This time using greys, cream and a beautiful Christmas red.
A mix of vintage lace and ribbon. It took awhile to match up the feathers, but I eventually found some that were suitable. I do miss not having everything set out, but we are hopeful that the outbuilding will be done next year. In the meantime I do the best I can with the limited space that I have.
A suitable wooden stag found and very quickly a bow added and the wreath completed.
Already, we are hoping for delivery. We have plans to visit all the family and are so excited, I will share some of our plans on another post.
The chickens are settling in well and each of the ladies are starting to develop their own personalities. They are such a joy, the Grandchildren have each chosen one and have named them as their own. Mickey has become a combination of shepherd dog, where he herds them together and guard dog.
As always I thank you for your visit, your support and comments. I also welcome a new follower I do hope you enjoy my little adventures through life.
It is our wedding anniversary today, we have been married for 37 years today so we have a quiet day in planned together. It is our intention to sit and reflect over the years and make plans for our trip away.
See you soon.
Congratulations on your wedding anniversary. I hope you both have a lovely day.ReplyDelete
Love the new wreath it is very pretty. I am not surprised your daughter put in a request for one.
Oh, you have chickens! What fun. Glad they are settling in well.
Congratulations on your anniversary! The new wreath is lovely and I'm sure your daughter will be thrilled with it. Your chickies look very contented with Mickey to watch over them. Best, Jane :)ReplyDelete
This is the first time I have left a comment on your blog. I love reading your posts and never miss one. I love doing craft myself and enjoy seeing what you have done. Recently returned from a trip to Scotland - which I loved - especially the many islands which i saw but sadly never got to see your island.ReplyDelete
Happy anniversary to you both! I love your wreaths. My mother made some like that when I was a kid. She also made another kind where she wrapped a strip of fabric around a toothpick at the ends to make a loop then stuck these all over a styrofoam wreath form until it was all covered with loops. It hung in our kitchen for about 15 years!ReplyDelete
Happy Anniversary to you both.ReplyDelete
Lovely to see the chickens, yes they do certainly develop there on personalities, our make me laugh quite often as I talk to them and they chat back to me in their own little way, whenever I go out the back they are following me around, they are such sweet birds.
Wishing you and Gerard very, very happy anniversary my friend. I’m also wishing you many, many more together as you enjoy this new life you’ve created on your island.ReplyDelete
The wreath is beautiful. I love how you use the things that you have on hand to make your grass.
The chickens look like they’re happy in their new home. I’m glad Mickey has accepted them and become their projector.
Wishing you a wonderfully happy day today Lorraine.
Blessings always, Betsy
