Whispy Hwhispy redone wreath

You know on the Golden Girls, how Blanche is all Southern, like exaggeratedly so. I'm sure the words "Why I do dee-clayuh" (declare) have been uttered on more than one occasion. The episode my friends and I always referenced was where she lamented "Why, big daddy, why?"  except it came out exaggeratedly Hwhy, big daddy, Hwhy.  All breathy with the H first. 

So this redone wreath, with all it's whispy goodness, isn't just whispy.  It's Hwhispy.  All exaggeratedly whispy.  Say it aloud with me, big exhalation of breath, HWHISPY.


I love all those greens and bushy things poking out every which (Hwhich) way.


Did you know they sell whispy things at the dollar store? 

whispy orange fall wreath

I do dee-clayuh, I did not. 

I plucked off all the sunflowers, cut off a lot of the green leaves, and added the whispy.  And by added I mean shoved them all in there, no glue gun required.  Yay for cheap instant gratification. 

It's officially fall in my home...

The Blanche comparison kills me...by far the best Golden Girl, if only because of the completely over-the-top accent. Love that wreath, too! The hwhisps are fab.

Looks great! I like the change up with the hwhisps. And that cartoon is cracking me up!

Isn't it great when you can spruce something up for cheap? BTW... the "Pumpking spice all the things" is totally my motto right now too.

After leaving my lens at the shop I volunteer for, dropping my good camera and having the battery die, I'm making one of these! Thanks for posting the pictures what a great idea. And thanks for stopping by my Blog. The travel charm bracelet is still fun to collect for.

Bonnie said...

Love your wreath. You make it sound so easy. I would like to know how to make a label like you did on your pics. What editing program do you use?

You asked the question what is in the shutters in the hallway of the vintage beach house I posted about. The shutters have menus and brochures about local restaurants and attractions in the surrounding beach areas. Thanks for visiting.
