Teal, Red, White and Grey Wreath and Sledding Fun!

Hello!  I hope that you are having a great weekend!  :>  We sure are! :>  Enjoying a lazy Sunday at home is the best!  Today I wanted to pop in and share a new wreath that I made.  My friend ordered this one from me and picked the colors, and I just love how it turned out!  I love it so much it deserves it's own post, I also had fun taking a bunch of photos of it:



Wreaths are quite popular these days and I think having one on your door all year really makes your house shine!  I really love this color combo as it's bold and draws attention to your door!  :>  I love adding pearls to the wreath as I think it finishes it quite nicely!  This is the first time I used silver pearls, love how it looks!  You know I love playing with paper but I also really enjoy making wreaths too.  I often wrap the yarn around the wreath when driving (as a passenger!) I find myself working on wreaths when it's late and I can't stamp straight!  I can't keep still very well I gotta be doing something!

On Friday after school we all went sledding as a family.  The weather was warmer and it was perfect sledding weather!  We recently discovered that a park close by has a toboggan run.  All my life the idea of a toboggan run terrified me and boy was I missing out!  I love it!  I grew up next to two huge hills that we would go sledding down all the time but now as an adult and mommy I find myself screaming the whole way down and putting my legs out to slow it down!  LOL I know what happened to me?  And this is where I love toboggan runs yes it's fast but it's a cleared path and no chance of crashing into someone or something!  And the walk up is easy and I don't end up having to carry a child up the hill! As my kids grow up I see that there is so much you can do with them (makes it a bit bearable that they aren't my little babies anymore)  I took some photos:





I got some great photos didn't I?  Love that when I asked Ariel and Carter to sit together they sat this way!  :>Gotta love winter fun!  Oh and I have a love for animal hats!  :>

Oh my! Absolutely exquisite looking wreath! I really love the beautiful colors! This could also be a great looking wreath for the holidays too! Love the pics of your children! It's been so long since I've been around snow, I don't think I could survive the cold like that! :)

Your wreath is gorgeous, Anita! I love how soft it looks!
We used to have a toboggan run at our park, but they removed it several years ago.... it's too bad, because with our lack of snow, that would have been fun this year...

Simone said...
