Cathy does an amazing job hosting the IAVOM. Every week she manages to find something to share with us. Well there is snow on the ground here and the challenge seems almost impossible, yet….
This is my wreath I made for my boss using hydrangeas I grow in her garden.
I picked some of the flowers in November while they still had some colour and hung them to dry in her greenhouse.
I wrapped a florists metal ring in moss and then greenery followed by the flower heads. I wired each stem to enable them to be secured.
A few small white and silver baubles were added and a silver ribbon to finish off.
So a little variation from the true IAVOM but faffing with flowers was involved. I hope you like it. Now do take a look at the other contributors on Cathy’s blog.
Have a good week and be careful out there on the ice.

In the Town where I live some lovely folk take it upon themselves to bomb the Church and bus shelter in wool.
Even the post box gets a woollen wrapping.
I love that people waiting for a bus get woollen seat covers and the Christmas tree is covered in baubles and chains all of the wool variety.
This is my offering for wrap, the post box wrapped in a woollen snow scene. Sandra at https://daffodilwild.wordpress.com and Rainbow junkie are hosts of this meme. I suspect this to be right up their street, although not actually, as they both craft such clever things.
