December One


The December Kit is available in the RVKC etsy shop. Its a fun one! You can get yours here.


We got our first snow on Sunday morning. Sebastian and I got bundled up and went out into it for as long as we could stand our wet socks and cold finger tips. He made piles with his tractor and I cut enough from our (insert species) tree to make a wreath for our front porch. I found a tutorial for wreath making that made me feel like I could do it myself. With supplies already handy, I tied it all together and had it hung in under thirty minutes.


We are lucky enough to have a tree in our yard to prune without anyone scolding us. If you are surrounded by palm trees or live in a concrete jungle, you may risk a late night park trip with shears in hand, or ask a local florist for their stock greens. They're usually friendly people, right? (Remind me tell you about my late night, flower-related story sometime.) (And my tales of Valentine's Day deliveries during my college years.)

I'll be back with a few more wreath ideas and pictures of the four wreaths I'm working on for our own home. Its a bad habit. In the meantime, I'll leave you with more Christmas eye candy to get you in the mood. Thank you, Martha Stewart design team.

That is a great wreath tutorial. I LOVE live wreaths. I think they just make homes so cozy! and I want to barf whenever I think of doilies, but I saw these Martha Stewart pics on AT and LOVED it!
