Cottage and Vine

Be sure to see the giveaway opportunity at the end of this post.  10 people will be chosen for a free download. 


Found another newer blog……..looks like several of you already found her a bit ago, but doesn't stop me.  Cottage and Vine couldn’t decide what she loved more…..the garden….or the cottage?  Why not have both? 

I also found her through my Get Your Craft On Tuesdays.  And you thought all the links were for you?  It’s just a motive to find more creative blogs.  he he he….   

Cottage and Vine is all about wreaths.  img45mWreaths make a home.  Every home   should have a few.  I’ve got at least 4 that I can think of hanging around or outside my home.  She loves wreaths so much, she is hosting a Wreath on Wednesday….I think it’s going to be something you can post yours on… I  can’t wait.vinewreath-1

Don’t you love a blogger who will give it up……give up their ideas…….give up how they did them……hold our hand and show us?  She does just that.  This red wreath caught my eye.  I plan on making one for my new gate my husband made me.  Visualize this red on my crisp white gate. 


If painted wreaths aren’t your thing and you have a magnolia tree around, you may be more interested in making one of these beauties.  She shows you step by step.


Mmmm, I love a red bench almost as much as a red door.



Of course she can make wreaths….if she can make her own topiary…..a real live one…….one you have to water.  I’ve always wanted to know how to do this and lucky me….there’s a TUTORIAL!!!!

100_1296  I’m starting to get really green with envy……..would you look at her kitchen?  100_1275

I couldn’t possibly have a post that didn’t include burlap… current obsession.  This kind of sewing is right up my alley.  I think I could manage this. 


It’s time to take a photo of your wreath and get ready.

Wow gorgeous kitchen, and the wreaths are beautiful! I used to know a woman (over the internet) that made some really gorgeous wreaths from twigs, bayberries, etc, loved them.
