This post must come across as a contradiction after the last pictures of February snow but what can I say, my relationship with winter is a classic Love-Hate…
Some days I welcome snow with my arms open and on other days I am gently suggesting that it has overstayed its welcome. And on days in between, I realize my minuscule power over nature and I keep telling myself… it too shall pass, just like all the other winters preceding this one.
Yesterday evening as I pulled into the driveway and witnessed the battle between the glow of the setting sun and the mound of the snow-ice mix in the yard, I decided to empower the feeling of warmth and change the wreath on my doorway to something spring.
It was a quick 10 minutes project but lifted my spirits no end. Here’s how I did it:
|Removed the holiday trimmings from the twig wreath |
that was hanging on the doorway
|Went down to the basement and rescued the old synthetic |
flowers (cherry blossoms) waiting to see the daylight
|Randomly arranged the flower bunches on the twig wreath|
|Fussed with the little branches and attached them with package ties|
|Swapped the holiday bird with the spring bird|
|And Voila! It’s ready, perfectly dressed to welcome spring…|
