Some of My Favorite Designs from 2018

Welcome!  I am very slowly moving into 2019 but, while I painstakingly get my house into January mode, I wanted to look back at some of the designs I created last year to gain perspective as I move forward into a new year.  Looking back helps me to appreciate some of my achievements (something that is hard for me to do sometimes) while also allowing me to set some new goals toward overall improvement .

So, here is a little slide show of my favorite floral designs from 2018.  Some you may have seen before and some may be new to you:


An Ice Vase as a Centerpiece: Transitioning into Winter

Here it is several weeks after Christmas and still I am finding myself not quite ready to do away with all of the sparkle and lighting that is a part of the holiday season.  So, as I transition over to winter décor, I still need a little glitz included.

I went to Michael's the other day and found myself in the Christmas clearance aisle and thought I could, perhaps, find uses for the items I found there.  Many of them had a bit of sparkle :) ~

Happy 2019, everyone!  Before moving onto the new year with all of its promise, I thought I would reflect on what you all liked best last year when it came to this blog.  I find it therapeutic and informative to look back and, perhaps, learn a few things about you, as well as myself along the way. Some of your favorites surprised me, while at the same time, I was surprised that some of my favorite posts were not very successful...at all!  C'est la vie :) !

Christmas Gift Wrapping

I know that I am making up for lost time but, before the moment is totally gone I wanted to talk about wrapping Christmas presents.  Even though this holiday was rushed at the end, something I truly hate, and I wasn't able to give my full attention to the wrapping of my presents, I normally thoroughly enjoy making my gifts look pretty.  I have a few examples below of the gifts I wrapped this year.  They are not my best but, they give you an idea, anyway.

A Post-Christmas Christmas Home Tour


It has been a wonderful week here in Groton.  My husband, Tom, has been home keeping me company as we have traveled all over Massachusetts and Connecticut visiting family members. My Christmas season was so busy this year that I was not able to post a Christmas tour of my home.  So, in my somewhat typical fashion, I am going to have a post-Christmastime post which includes Christmas elements. Last year I produced a gingerbread house village after Christmas. (You can see that here if you would like.) I think I am starting a tradition and I am OK with it because I have a hard time with letting go of Christmas 🎄.

Merry Christmas 2018


Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and looking forward to a wonderful New Year!

Decorating With Evergreens for Christmas

Hi Everyone!  How are you doing with all of your Christmas stuff?  Well, since I haven't posted for a while I think you can guess how mine is going :).  One week ago today I held a holiday greens garland workshop at the request of a local interior design company.  I had so much fun doing it and I think the ladies who joined us that night did, as well.  This is an example of what we made.  It was meant to be a table centerpiece or you could place it on your mantle also.
