fabulous wreath alert!

My to-do list is so long for today I had to flip to the backside of my paper to keep adding...

so I am going to keep this short and sweet...

When I saw my friend Judy's creation, I KNEW I had to show you!

My friends Anita and Judy have the most fabulous booth at the same market I sell at during the summer months. They are the girls I always KNOW will have the best vintage goodies and handmade treasures.This month Judy made this wreath which sold...oh, somewhere about the split-second that the doors to the show opened!

Isn't this the BEST holiday wreath??

Handmade with love from the heart of Iowa...

I am in LOVE...the creams and whites...the delicate snowflakes...

and the BEST part..



Only $38 plus that is fabulous, my friends!

If you want to place an order...visit their blog...Iowa Junk Gypsies

Have a fabulous day, my friends!

I am off to take more pics for Etsy, wait for a delivery of a new washer and dryer, clean the house, do some Christmas shopping, list some things on Etsy, finish the laundry, make beds, shovel my walk for the 85th time, write out my Christmas cards and paint a couple pieces for furniture for the orders that I am way behind on! Whew...I'm tired just thinking about it.

How about it I just get under my electric blanket and read blogs all day?

Yeah, that sounds much better.


  1. It's gorgeous, so delicate and perfect for the holidays!
    Good luck with your list :)

    I had a huge to-do list for today, but last night came down with the flu. That will just put me another day behind.

    Good luck with your very long to-do list!

  4. wow that's so beautiful!!! :) i have a long to do list... but i am refusing to look at it until tomorrow!

  5. Ooooo, that wreath IS pretty!

    Hey, a new washer and dryer? Now THAT'S a nice Christmas prezzie! :-)


    P.S. Still loving my jars, but was too tired/lazy to take pics of 'em yet

  6. Hey Mary- Thanks so much for the shout out. We sure appreciate it- and Judy is busily making some more flowers - she has sold a cou0ple wreaths already this morning! I PASSED my Master's Exams and now feel about 300 pounds less tension in my shoulders :) Now, we are all hoping for a SNOW DAY on Wednesday :)

  7. love it- so pretty! I'm tired just reading your to-do list - I think I'll crawl under my blanket and read blogs too :)

  8. How cute are those! my list sounds a lot like yours...except my "sidewalk" is a little over 200 feet long (it's actually my driveway). I'm such a "list" person...I have lists on my fridge, in my purse and at my desk ;o)

  9. Oh, how lovely! The creativity is very inspiring...

  10. Those wreaths are gorgeous! I love the textures!

  11. Very simple and elegant. Lovely!

  12. Ooh...that is a really beautiful wreath!!!

  13. Hi Mary,

    I just viewed your post for the Northridge Farm visit. I love places like that and wish I could just move myself in1

    There used to be an old dairy barn converted to an antique shop near me. Each stall was rented by a different vendor and the Christmas open house was just as wonderful as your post. Sadly, it closed many years ago and I don't know of anything around here half as nice.

    Thanks for sharing!!

  14. Altogether SWEET! Just love it...thanks for sharing

  15. That is a fabulous wreath, what a lot of work making all those flowers!
    I'm a new follower...

  16. Mary, LOVE this!!!
    Have a pretty day!

  17. very very the wreath

  18. seriously - that wreath speaks to me. I love it! Oh, how much I'd love to hide under the covers and read blogs today - but no, the to-do list beckons! We'll be grateful later that we got a lot accomplished today!

  19. Mmmm I sure do love the wreath... maybe if i get some Christmas money!! Thanks for sharing!
    Sorry I haven't visisted your blog... I took a much needed break from Blog land. Although I love blogging and all the wonderful people, I was so busy and it was becoming a task to keep up! Yours was one of the 1st i checked in on though! Thanks for the inspiration!

  20. Oh, man, oh MAN!! I really, really need this wreath. Need - ha. Still, thanks for letting me know. I'm off to check it out.

  21. So pretty!! I wish I had the patience to make one.
