On Thursday I mentioned that Mom was going to a Christmas Wreath Work shop.
It was a held at Fairview Garden Center in Raleigh, sponsored by BB&T.
TOGM was actually very pleased with her first ever live wreath.
The nursery staff gave everyone a few tips on how to start.  They had all types of 
greenery cut and in bins for us to select and a wire form.  
Mom loved all the shades of green and types of greenery.
For some reason Mom was they only attendee who used Magnolia leaves (there to the left of 
the bow).   Might just be a Southern thing but she loves the texture and shine
Yep TOGM was proud of it.  It is hanging by the front door.
The bow was not included in the work shop.  Mom bought it at the there though
and it was just the final touch needed.

  2. Madi, I think Mom is very clever.
    Can I let you into a little secret? Gail has signed up for a needle felting workshop in a week's time. It is the first time she has ever engaged in such an activity. Should I be worried?

  7. had to come back, just found this on another blog.
    The Circle is Unending, The circular shape of the wreath, 
    without beginning or end, 
    symbolizes God’s complete and unending love for us
