Holiday Cheer

You know [I think] that for me at Christmas time more is better.  But I may think that this one has just a little bit too much "more". 

Was driving down the street and it leaped out at me.  I just loved it ... well, at first.
I love the colors!  All of the balls at the bottom are almost apple green - just a variety of sizes packed tightly together.  The shiny blue at the top is wide, shiny ribbon loops, and the streamers are a different shade of blue and not shiny.
 On closer look, tho, I think it's actually too much.  
Here's a longer view.

What do you think?


  1. My thinking is that it is a very talented person that made this wreath and I'm guessing that it's the owner of the home. More than I would have on my house (or know how to do) but I think it's beautiful wreath.

  2. I am with you: too much for me. Also kind of too big for the door. And several wreaths so close together? Call me the Christmas Grinch.

  3. I would like it without the bottom longer streamers, or if they were a classic darker blue. Maybe like a Navy blue? But then, Ive just decorated a 3 ft tall, leafless lilac bush, growing in a big pot on my deck, with silver garlands and blue cloth round ornaments that are at least 15-20 years old! Anything for some color in the Winter. Well, almost anything, :-)

    1. I agree with you, Diane. It's the streamers that lose me. Otherwise, the color is wonderful! Why not a lilac bush? Great idea!
