I'm FALLing all over the place

HI, YA'LL, 
I just got inspired by my sweet blogging buddy, 
by her amazing and beautiful FALL wreath she just made.
 Isn't it just beautiful....
all those bright fall colors just take my breath away.
 Yes, ma'am......she made it sound so simple and I thought,
 "Hey, I need a new FALL wreath, too."
Well, sir, I had all the STUFF needed and I went to town on it.... 
 
A grapevine wreath...
gracious, what would we DO without grapevine wreaths?
Hobby Lobby has them on sale ALL the time and they are very easy on the pocketbook.

They are awesome for just about any kind of wall decoration you could ever think of....
they make amazing centerpieces...
Good for LOTS of things.

Being the silly self that I am,
I didn't think about taking a photo of the garland I had to work with until AFTER it was all fashioned onto the wreath....
but....here's parts of it.
 





So, I wrapped that beautiful garland I had all around and about that grapevine wreath, securing it with floral wire....

and before I knew it,
 my very plain porch
was instantly turned into.....



THIS...!!
I just love it to pieces.
Thanks, Lynn, for inspiring me to CREATE today.
I might never have thought about that garland hanging in my back closet,
just DYING to spotlight my plain and simple PORCH.

Isn't it amazing what can be done with things we already have on hand? Your wreath is inspiring!

Elaine said...

Hi, BJ....I think I'm reading this post a few days late (even though I am a follower) Anyway, hope you see this comment. I have an older wreath that has been just sitting here in it's storage container for almost two weeks now. I took it out of the attic with good intentions....but there it sat! I kept thinking I'd hang it but somehow it just doesn't seem to be what I want to put up this year. Can't explain it, I just don't like it very much anymore. In any case, after seeing yours I am now inspired! It's gorgeous! I am ready to re-do!
