Last week, I (Teri) spent the week in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia. One of the highlights of the week was strolling down the brick sidewalks, enjoying the beautiful home decorations and wreaths. I thought you might like to see some of them, so I'd like to invite you to talk a walk down the street with me.
Everything used was natural: feathers, fruit, seashells, wheat, seed pods, nuts. Each home had a wreath, as well as the colonial establishments. Often, the wreaths reflected something about building it decorated.
|The Apothecary worked here. Nested within the seashells are vials of botanicals used for healing.|
|I loved this creative "pineapple"!|
|As you can imagine, the milliner worked in this building.|
|Ice skating, anyone?|
|And a happy Hanukkah!|
|I love my coffee, so I thought this one was a lot of fun!|
|This one makes me hungry.|
|At the barber and wigmaker's establishment, you'll see a comb tucked in the wreath, but don't miss the curls on either side.|
Kara and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for joining us on our journey this past year. We appreciate you, our readers, and we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
