My Alpine Home


We have lived in our new home in Alpine, Utah for four years now. My current goal is to make a larger more open home (which works great with our extended family) have a bit of cottage charm and seem more cozy. I hope you will follow along and give me encouragement as well as advice as I embark upon this challenge.

Circle of Love. . .

My SIL, Laurie and I took a class at Thanksgiving Point and made this wreath.  It is real easy and she and I had already made wreaths that were very similar. However the class was fun and it was a great time together. Just crinkle paper doilies and coffee filters and hot glue to a Styrofoam base.

We brought extra embellishments to doll ours up a bit more.  The burlap flower and none of the hanging d├ęcor was included.

There are so many things that I love gathered together on this wreath.  Paper doilies and coffee filters. . .

Burlap and roses. . .

Mercury glass and bling. . .

ribbons and pearls. . .

Put them all together and what do you get?  A circle of Love!

I really didn’t know where to hang my new wreath.  The mantle was already decorated and I didn’t feel like messing with it.  Next year I think that’s where it will end up.

So, lack of a better place this is where it calls home.

Sitting atop my ‘Chocolates for Valentines’ quilt.

The only problem is, it covers up the chocolates.

Oh well, guess you can say that I am one of those woman that hides her chocolates so no one will eat them. lol!

Gotta ask, “do you hide goodies at your house?”

Hugs,

Jann

Hi Jann!

That wreath is so cute. I have used coffee filters for other projects but never a wreath. I love the added embellishments and I have to mention that your quilt is beautiful!

Thanks for sharing them at my Bunny Hop Party!

I really need to do this. Yours is so pretty the way you embellished it. And you made me laugh...yes, I hide my chocolate. Hanging head in shame, ha!

Christine @ Stonehouse Living said...

Hi Jann,
LOVE this wreath...I have a spare wall to hang it in my sewing room...It would be perfect in there!! Actually I do have a coffee filter wreath already on the door to the sewing room. Love all of the extras you added to the wreath. Very pretty! The quilt is so perfect too! With just the two of us at home now...I don't really need to hide the goodies anymore. In fact I get more in the house when I know the girls will be coming home! Funny how things change over time!!
All the Best,
Christine

Love the wreath and all the extra embellishments that you added. I really want to try making a burlap rose now that you showed us how to do it. I just gotta make time! I love my quilt that is pink and brown like yours, but the pattern isn't the same. The fabric just makes you happy to look at and it does remind me of chocolate and Valentines.
