ARTIFICIAL FLOWER WREATH'S


Some years ago I bought a large box of artificial flowers from the car boot and they have been in the cupboard ever since.
I knew I'd find a use for them one day and as I had a few willow wreaths, again from the car boot I made some up for the garden just to liven things up.



One on the side of the shed and another on the door.
Not sure how they will fare in the weather but they cost nothing so not worried.

This is the sad thing for us now.
We both loved the car boots and can't begin to tell you how many lovely unusual things we have bought over the years but sadly we are now a couple of old crocks who can't manage to walk around them so we will reminisce instead. lol

  1. Oh, I am so sorry! Could you still go, but limit your walking to just a little part of the car boot? I know how you feel, as I need a scooter or wheelchair for any distance. Your blue shed is so pretty, and the wreaths look just perfect on it!

  2. I like your wreaths and I love being able to make things from stuff I already have. Too bad about not being able to go anymore. I try and stay away from things like that because I'm too tempted to buy and I don't need any more stuff in my house.

  3. Your garden is so pretty, I wouldn't think you'd need artificial flowers! But I do understand that the wreaths won't need renewing, as they would with fresh flowers.

  4. The wreaths are lovely. I was surprised that I didn't sell many artificial flowers at the fair. People turned their noses up at them saying they weren't real. The woman across from us sold her real flowers at £2 a bunch, mine were 50p. People are so short sighted. Artificial will last a lot longer and add colour.

    1. I've stuck 2 or 3 into the garden to give it a bit more colour. I bet if those flowers had been made into wreaths they would have gone like hotcakes Ilona. Some people don't seem to have much imagination do they?

  5. I am sorry you can no longer walk the boot sales, I know from years of posts how much you both loved them. and you did fine a lot of real deals... I love the first photo with the bird cage, looks good from here... my mother was the queen of artificial flowers, she bought every one she saw at yard sales. once she wired pink flowers all over the winter dead azalea bushes she could see from her kitchen window

  6. Is that a plaster-cast of Tom's face on the door of the blue shed?

  10. There's a lot to be said for reminiscing too, dear friend. I do that a lot myself. Your wreaths are beautiful and "came of age in their own time", as the old saying goes. Love, Andrea xoxo

  14. At least you can enjoy what you have and the design of your own creations. I have a harder time getting to thrift shops and places so I sympathize. I like your blue shed.

  15. It is far less expensive when compared to other telephone services, especially by those being used by major organizations. A small business phone service could still be useful for small Business Phone Service enterprises because of its reliable and accepted functions and other specialized features
