Holiday Cheer

Today we come back home - to my home.
After seeing so many pretty wreaths this year, I decided I wanted something different.  So, I took it down and started over.
I had most of the redder poinsettias from a mantle piece I did several years ago and only added a few more based on the slight change of color I wanted.  The real culprit was the ribbon.  I found this one day and fell totally in love with it.  
 How can you not love those feathers?
It's not Christmasy at all, but how could I resist?   It's a warm, red-ish brown with those gorgeous feathers in shades of gold, silver, and red with the gold edge.  The flowers that I added were a more peachy shade to try to pull the redder shades toward the browner ones.  
And then, of course, a bit of the shiny white and berries that are red in a brownish tone.
 These flowers are sort of organza with lots of gold, as if they were sprayed.
Am very pleased with the result.

[Now, everyone, off to bed early so that Santa can come.]


  1. Why am I not surprised that the Garden Lady can create such a beautiful wreath? You have such talent.

    Merry Christmas to you and all of your family!

  2. I think this is gorgeous, in spite of being a green/white/red affectionada. This is very sophisticated and Christmassy with the poinsettias. I love it!
