Dress up for the holidays!

These days I'm busy making swags and wreaths for the holidays. Foraging in the woods, I've gathered greens (mostly pines,) bittersweet, pinecones and red berries. Foraging in the basement I've gathered ribbons and wires. Foraging in junk stores will provide even more in the way of old skates, ornaments and bits of vintage tinsel. They'll come together and make fresh, lovely and (best of all) fragrant decorations.

I don't know what's better, foraging for fun stuff or putting the stuff together to make one-of-a-kind decorations. Even the garage, overstuffed with piles of greens, bits of tinsel, vintage ornaments, and trailing ribbons is wonderful.

I'm proud to offer beautiful, well constructed and long lasting decorations at a reasonable price. The swags will be priced between $20 and $35 dollars, the wreaths will start at $35 and go up to $50.
