Snow!!!

Snowstorms everywhere.
We've never had this much snow in our area before. It's even worse in the south-west and east. Hundreds of accidents have been reported so far and people are stranded at train stations and airports. Even Frankfurt Int'l Airport had to close for a day...and I'm desperately waiting for a parcel of fabrics from overseas. Well, all I can do is wait and hope it isn't damaged during transport. I for one am really glad I got all my gifts and cards sent out well ahead of time.


Here is the wreath I made. I've kept it very simple with just a few shiny and matte baubles, a delicate bead and gold star wire garland, a few dried berries and festive ribbon. I keep the fir branches looking and smelling fresh by spraying with mineral water every two days or so. You may have noticed that all four candles have been lit already, even though it isn't Christmas yet  (we celebrate on the 24th). Well, that's just me - I like them burning down all at the same time. Everyone else of course lights them one by one every consecutive Advent Sunday until Christmas!

Oh, and I've been featured on Showcase Sisters! Thank you Cheryl and Sheila. Do check out their blog chock-full of handy tips, decorating ideas, giveaways and reviews.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're all keeping warm, unless of course you live in a sunny place: in that case, send over some sunshine pleeeeeaase!

  3. The wreath is beautiful! It doesn't have to be complex to be gorgeous. Congrats on the feature, too! I hope that the snow doesn't last too long there. We haven't been dumped on too much yet, but there's still a lot of winter left. :)

  4. Pretty wreath! My mom loves to pair wreaths and candles together. I worry about fires--she has started one--but I love the flicker from the candles and the warmth.
    Stay warm and safe.

  5. It's so obnoxious when the weather gets in the way of a package arriving, isn't it? Hope you stay warm and cozy -- make another cute wreath!
    I'm sending you some sunshine :)

  6. Beautiful wreath Duni! Hope you get your fabric soon. Glad you have your gifts and cards out and hopefully you can just stay in and enjoy the beauty of the snow without having to go out in it. It's raining like crazy here and I have no gifts bought and no cards done yet. :(

    Congrats on the feature! Hugs to Sammy!

  9. I love your wreath it's gorgeous. I'm also jealous that you got all your gifts and cards in the mail already. I haven't even got the gifts bought yet. My daughter may not get her gifts until New Years at the rate I'm going.
    Hope that snow lets up for you soon
