So, those of you who popped into the Harlequin open house this week may already have seen this picture. It’s the wreath on my front door that I lovingly create each Christmas out of other “stuff”.
I love this thing. Mainly because it’s a different twist on a traditional wreath (which really aren’t big here in Oz) and it looks kind of country which suits the rural acerage block where we live. But mostly I love it because, not being a crafty person in any way shape or form, the fact that I can make this and it looks good is ALWAYS a thing of wonder to me 🙂 It’s just some rustic wall art that hangs on the wall near my BBQ for 11 months of the year awaiting its seasonal transformation and some strings of Christmas tree beads put to an alternate use.
But I think it looks really Christmassy, don’t you? Really “outback” Christmassy.
And its kind of the way I roll these days in the midst of a busy life and lack of the craft gene. I “construct” rather than create using things I already have and mashing them together. I also tend to cook that way as well. Taking a few already “prepared” things and putting them together to create a wholly different dish.
