Avoiding Winter Blahs

Determined not to get the winter blues I decided it was time to add splashes of color to my home decor.  So off to the craft store we went to procure a new supply of wired ribbons.  Back at home and going through my stash of silk flowers I started to work.  Turning out a bunch of new wreaths.

Greeting visitors at the front door will see this one.  Mauve wired ribbon bow and touches of burlap interwoven among pansies helped to turn out this wreath. I like the way it stands out against our front door.

Interior doors take on a different look.  See here …

Wanted to try a different look for a white interior door so I turned to blending deep, bright purple flowers and pansies around a yellow dotted bow works well with this wreath. Personally, I’m not partial to purple, but, sometimes you need to stretch your preferences for dramatic effect.

Okay, that’s enough for an adventurous effort, it is time to go back into my comfort zone and a rustic touch. Those who know me would think Autumn colors and orange flowers.  Ha!  Guess again.

I got a great deal on several different wired burlap ribbons so I selected spring colors like–yellow, peach, and peach.

Now, I’m all set and ready to drive out any signs of winter blahs.
