Making Advent Wreaths

Had a lovely evening walk picking fresh materials for our advent wreath ..



using an oasis florist base soaked in Water to increase its life ...




adding longish fir twigs to the outer ring




adding some thin leaf greenery to next row





next some Holly .. ouch very spikey




filling center with some pebbles ...




adding some vanilla scented candles in the middle




some fircones to cuddle the candles :)




lush berries .. not sure what they are called .. anyone ?




added some ball decoration and its finished :)




time to light the candle ...

bright blessings for a joyful advent to all :)

evolution of a painting

Evolution of a painting ..


she shyly arrives ..


only to turn blue..


in mysterious company ...


a wicked splash of red ...


and there she goes to sleep tonight only to awaken tomorrow for another round of delicious layers
