Making Your Dreams A Reality

One of the great things about having more time on my hands is that I can explore my creative side. I can dream and turn those dreams into reality. Last night, I dreamed about creating a wreath. So this morning, I pulled one of the metal wire frames that the homeowner’s of our last home had left in the old house (13 years ago – yes, we save the strangest things), some flower shears, and some string. Florist metal may have been a better choice, but I didn’t have any and I have learned not to put off my ideas just for lack of supplies. The idea will practically haunt me until, I accomplish the task. I wasn’t 100% sure about how I wanted to accomplish the wreath. I knew that I wanted to use hydrangea which grows in the yard. I add a purple flower that is growing out front which I’m not positive what it is and I added some seed pods from Oriental poppies. This is what I created:

Isn’t it lovely. And better than that, my DH and son installed the pineapple doorbells that I have been waiting for.

Welcome! Welcome to my home.

It's lovely! You are very creative. I know what you mean though, about dreaming of your creation. I've done that with scrapbook pgs and cards. Went to bed thinking I don't know how I want this to look, and in the morning have the picture of it in my head.
