The flippin' wreath

Here's the story
of a wonky door wreath
that I made with my former roommate.

It's got leaves and sunflowers,
and beaded goodness.
We loved it oh, so much.

Til the one day when the roommates lived apart-
who was going to take favorite Fall Wreath?
Neither one would give it up,
quite so easy- 
And so they flipped a coin.

That's the way Fall Wreath lives on my front door!


Thank you very much, I'm here all day.
And hopefully not losing any more followers-what's the deal with that? Although after that little ditty...

Detail shot of sparkly leaves and beaded goodness.

You wouldn't have let such a nice wreath go without flipping for it, now would you?

I lost a follower one day last week, but then gained 8 more that day so I didn't feel too bad.

Love this wreath and yay to you for winning the toss!

Your wreath is beautiful! Followers come and go. Don't stress.

I host a weekly meme called Seasonal Sundays (linking is open until Mondays) and it's all about what the season means to YOU. I'd love to have you and your wreath come join me.

I have two wreaths one with holioday ornaments and the other is a straw wreath that I remake every season with what I have in the house. Right now it is covered in fall flowers and veggies from our wedding decorations 2 years ago. Congrats on the wreath and it is adorable and your front door is cute too.

HAha, so funny!! Love the wreath! It's so pretty!

Annnd...you can make a button...google around on 'how to make a button for my blog'. There's plenty of instructions! You just have to make a small image and load it to picasa or something like that, and then link back to it.

Happy Monday!

Purty...have you considered sharing it? This year you hang it, next year the ole' former roommate hangs it? My mother-in-law made this awesome picture quilt for her parents. The pics were all family pics...cool. Now that the parents are gone, each year a different sibling gets to keep it at their house. I thought that was a fun idea~~

I like that wreath!! I would probably flipped for it, too! I'm not sure about the follower thing. I have had that happen too. I really think it may be more of someone having blogger problems than necessarily unfollowing! Who knows! The only time I have unfollowed is when a couple months go by with no posts and no word that they are coming back when they can!
