Christmas Nostalgia

Over on Lucky Snapping Kathi has asked us to blog about Christmas traditions and routines that we have.
 
We don't actually have that many that I can think of right now anyway lol  - sure I will think of more as the week goes on.
 
Wreath making is the newest tradition which has grown over the last three years, this being the third year.  As a child we never had a wreath, it was a Christmas item that part of me longed to have - why I have no idea but I just did.  I would watch all the old Christmas films - with their beautiful wreaths on doors and all the wonderful lights and snow all around and actually believe that is what it was like in America!!!  Part of me still believes it was back then!!  (that will be the romantic daydreamer in me coming out lol). Anyway back in the real world - three years ago I was invited to go along with the local WI ladies to a wreath making evening at the local garden centre, it was a lovely evening and I love each wreath I have done. Here is the first, it would appear I had a blip last year and took a break from blogging over Christmas and didn't blog my second one :( can't even find a photo of it at the moment!  Either way here is the third one, I just fell in love with the ribbon so bright and cheerful.

  1. It's beautiful, Karen. I've never actually made a proper wreath ... must put it on my 'to do one day' list. I've made a paper one if that counts?

  6. We also do not have any Christmas traditions either, or not that I can think of. Because we are in the UK with my FIL this year we have put up a few decorations, but when it is just the two of us we just enjoy the peace and quiet. Have a good one Diane

  7. You did a wonderful job on your wreath Karen. I made one many years ago but never took a picture of it. Now I just hang a store bought one on the door. I too love the bright colored ribbons.
