Favorites on the First: Wreaths!

Still trying to get my act together.... but it is only December 1st!

An overscale wreath dotted with apples, lemons, and nuts, as well as Hypericum berries, and osage oranges.

Happy December 
and welcome to 
another edition of
 Favorites on the First!

This month we will share 
our favorite wreaths 
or whatever you
have decided to add to your 
front door arrangement.

There are SO many wonderful
images floating out there.
You know I have been 
pinning and collecting 
wreath ideas for weeks.

It's not done yet. Needs a bow and
some additional fresh greens tucked in.

But here is my front door this month...
a work in progress. Finally will have time
today to put the finishing touches on the
main entrance area.

We are expecting record-breaking warm
temps here this weekend so I have put
off my outdoor decorations knowing
it would be warm today and tomorrow.

Can't wait to see what you have done.

Will add more pics to this post later today!

Invite your friends over, please.
The more the merrier!


Snow Shoes

Come on.....
link up your front door at
Favorites on the First!

Lots of pretty options here...hmmm which one do I want????

Bliss said...

As usual as I'm getting around to my blog reading I was late to the party!

Diane | An Extraordinary Day said...

Haha! Didn't get my wreath done until late last night and it wasn't posted until today. I knew I was too late, but wanted to see what everyone had done. It looks like a lot of folks are a little bit behind, too. You surely gathered a lot of lovely inspiration as well.

I have been surfing οnline more thаn 3 hours toԁay, yet I neѵer found any intеresting article
liκe yours. It iѕ pretty worth enough fοr
me. Ιn my opiniοn, if all websіte owneгs аnd bloggers made good contеnt аs уou
did, the net will be much more uѕeful than eѵeг before.
