Just being inspired is not enough. Creating something beautiful acually takes talent, too. I was feeling inspired by my visits to the Blomsterverkstad Site, but my creations are not quite as nice as hers. Here is my moss wreath.
And my "heart shaped" ivy wreath.
Oh well...I'll keep reading her blog and try again another day.
I have added a new blog to my list of favorite blogs on the right hand side of my site. I just found this lovely blog a few days ago, and I have truly enjoyed perusing it. I have tried to only look at a few pages each day, so that I may savor the contents.
The writer of the blog, Minna, is from Sweden. She creates wreathes and arrangements from things that she finds in nature. She uses lots of moss in her creations. I am feeling truly inspired by her creativity, and I hope to try my hand at making a few arrangements this weekend. We definitely have plenty of moss and other natural resources readily available here in the Big Woods.
If you like this type of thing, I highly recommend that you take a look at her site. http://www.blomsterverkstad.blogspot.com/ Just looking at the pictures of things she has created around her home gives me such a nice feeling. Enjoy!
The red lanterns have now been cleaned and are ready for our Long Table Party tomorrow night. We have around 40 people coming to eat around one long table in the middle of our field. We will enjoy baked potatoes, chili, and grilled hot dogs. The kids will play horse shoes, washer board, and croquet. The weather promises to be beautiful.
