the wreath was created using found twisting branches, and is wrapped in a fine floral print cotton. a blue rose has been hand stitched from a thick felted wool, along with hand stitched wool and cotton print leaves...
as you can see, my mind has moved into spring, however uncooperative the weather is choosing to be ;) just as i'm ready for warm weather, and budding flowers, mother nature sprinkled the white stuff over atlanta... and, while i really do love snow, i prefer it before the new year
and how surprised i was to find that half an inch of snow could virtually shut down a city? that was until i witnessed the unfortunate combination of lack of salting/plowing and people unfamiliar with snowy weather. while in new york people went on about their business with 24" of snow (school/work/play), in atlanta cars are colliding, schools shutting down, neighbors slipping on the ice (and looking around to see if anyone had witnessed the embarrassing moment... yes, yes i did)... and my sister reported that one of her neighbors could be seen scraping off the ice on the car with a set of keys... oh, atlanta ;)
happy snow day (and be careful out there)!
