Spring Mesh Wreath...New Etsy Store Items...and a Guest Post

Welcome from my front door! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was very productive. I got the front beds mulched and garden planted...well, hubby did most of that because of the new fertilizer he decided to put down.lol. I just dropped the plant in the hole. I also cleaned quite a bit (ok a little) and got some new Etsy items made. First I want to show you my spring mesh wreath. I used green mesh, ribbon and some silk stems and butterflies. I also added a "Welcome" sign in the middle. It really brightens up the front door!

If you would like to know how to make your own mesh wreath just click here.


I will show you the rest of the yard and flowers soon.
Here are some items I recently listed in my Etsy store. Cute little birdhouse arrangement...
Butterfly arrangement... I love poppies!
Red and gold urn arrangement...
These ribbons are GORGEOUS!
Black and gold photo album...
I wanted to tell you that I just finished a guest post at Grammy Girlfriend. If you have not ever visited Teresa you need to make your way over there now! She is a sweet lady who I have met in person. She is also very talented and decorates over 60 houses for Christmas! I don't know how she does it...


Have a great week!!

Oh my gosh, I love that green, Kristen! All the embellishments are perfect, too. This is one I'd leave up through the Summer months, too. I guess these wouldn't ship too well, otherwise I'd ask you to make me one!

Kristen, your mesh wreath is fabulous! I especially love it because it's not something you will need to take down once Easter is over. Outstanding! Gorgeous floral arrangement as well. :)

Becca said...
