Using What I Have Celebration

I am so pleased to be featured at Hibiscus House for Farmgirl Friday with my Christmas pillows!  I'm joining up again this week, linking through Hibiscus House. 

I'm also linking up with Sunny Simple Life for  Sunny Simple Sunday.

I spent a little time creating this past week.  I wanted new wreaths for my doors.  I stripped down an old wreath and decided to use what I had to make a new one. I will be working on the second wreath this weekend.  In the meantime, I'll show you what I came up with for my front door:

I used pinecone picks to add a little more interest to the wreath.  I fashioned a new bow from old ribbon.  The little bird box was truly a 'use what you have' craft.  It used to be a little shadow box that hung on my bedroom wall, but I tired of it long ago.  I recovered with fresh paper inside and out, then used moss to cover the edges of the box.  A bird figurine that normally resides in the curio cabinet was placed in the box.  He sits upon a pinecone which I thought appropriate for my theme.

I did spray the wreath with faux Snow but it appears more frosted than snowy white.  That is so appropriate for Georgia, lol.  We're far more prone to have frost than snow most years.  I'm very happy with my wreath.  It's not glitzy and flashy but then neither is my country home, though a bit of glitz is bound to slip out here and there.  I think the gold is just enough color here with the red door and ribbon.

Thanks for joining me in my Farmgirl Friday craft.  Stop by and see what others have been up to as well!
