‘The First Day of the Month Mosaic’

I started it off with a little fun!

IPWreath

I went to the Tree Lot on the corner near my house and bought a Fraser Fir wreath. I tied a homespun bow on it and put a cluster of berries in the center.

We hung it on the front door, on the inside to enjoy the fragrance throughout the house. We have a lighted wreath on the outside of the door.

Now I’m going to play a little trick on you….

SO READ THIS!

It's freezing rain here this morning and I'm freezing my giblets off so thanks for the fun and warmth! I suppose that your wreath would do better on the inside rather than the outside! ☺ It'll last longer! Good tip, too, I may have to take you up on that one.

Michigan will hit 60 today - but it is pouring rain this morning. I love your snow on the photo. I would be happy to send some down to you when it arrives - we always have plenty! ;)

Have a wonderful Sunday!

Hi namemate! Your home really feels like Christmas and the places you've been to intensifies my excitement for the holidays. Your blog is one that makes me feel so giddy about the season, starting off with your cute blog header.

Thank you for joining my Beautiful Sunday series.

Wishing you a great week ahead!

We have been having some Florida weather here in SC these days. I do miss my winters in Florida Diane. You sure look like you are having fun.

cucki said...

i love the wreath so much..so sweet..
love for you x

Very cute with the snow...that's the only way I want it to come this month. I'm crossing my fingers that we'll just have rain when the storms come from the Pacific, but it depends if that pesky jet stream curves up through Canada and sends cold down. I do enjoy that we are green all year round and with all the evergreens and ferns, it smells like Christmas inside and out! Love your wreath embellishment idea, XOXO

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

I need to start using that program - that turned out great!

NanaDiana said...

A wreath inside so you can smell it sounds like a great idea. I did not know you could add snow with Picmonkey. I have to check that out- xo Diana

Brenda said...

Love your snow in Florida! That's one of the great things about Colorado at CHRISTmas time...snow. Now, I hope we get some!

desi said...

It's a warm 65 here today. No snow. But I'm hoping that by Christmas Day we'll see some of those REAL flakes flying here! Or, at the very least, cooler temps so it will feel like Christmas. That's one thing I'd miss about moving to FL...the chill in the air at Christmastime! ;D

patty said...

Ha ha, I have to use fake snow here too in Southern CA! Thanks for visiting my blog about the lavender farm.... such a special place!!

Linda R said...

Too funny.. Looks like you had some fun in Picmonkey.. I bet that wreath smell so good.

Hugs~

Danielle said...

I love PicMonkey...especially around the holidays...I suspect they are going to start charging for the 'special' effects as I had it come up one day saying that I could enjoy them for a limited time ;(

Donna said...

I bet it's nice and toasty down there! We're having a bit of a warm spell here for now, and my furnace is glad to get a little rest!

ImSoVintage said...

No snow here. It is in the 60's, but plenty of rain on a very gray day :)

Hugs,
Laura

eileeninmd said...

It is amazing what you can do with photos, like snow in Florida! Your wreath is pretty. Wonderful post,have a happy week ahead!

Snap said...

You are dreaming of a white Christmas! !!! The tree lots here have been packed. Looks like you did have fun!

Lavender Cottage said...

It's fun playing around with PicMonkey, isn't it? Your wreath looks nice and it would be heavenly having the scent waft through the house.

Lorrie Orr said...

If you want snow, that's a great way to get some, sort of. Love the fun of it all. Your wreath is beautiful. Here, it would last longer outdoors rather than in. But the smell in the house would be wonderful. Enjoy your week.

podso said...

Clever there with the snow! And I love your wreath and it's natural-looking bow! Enjoy the season!

Picmonkey is so fun to play in. The wreath looks fabulous. Blessings, Jen

GrandmaK said...

Beautiful wreath! Hoping we get some snow here but when it's 60 degrees outside it doesn't seem likely...yet! Have a wonderful week! Cathy

I like your idea for snow better than the real thing. Your wreath will be lovely hanging on your door. Valerie

(Queenmothermamaw) Peggy said...

I am enjoying PicMonkey too. I like adding the snow and frosty look. Beautiful wreath.

Becca said...

Ah, that beautiful Florida weather! I am however, enjoying the rainy cooler weather this year for Christmas since it's so different that what I'm used to. Take care!

Kim K. said...

Isn't picmonnkey fun! Love your FL snow.

Karen Harvey Cox said...

Hello lovely lady. I didn't know I could add snow in Picmonkey. Thank you for that, I still miss the old editor with all of those dreamy snowy frames.

Well, I am stopping by to let you know that I have turned my blog into an Advent Calendar this season. Every day I will be giving away free downloadable artwork.

So, please stop by when you get a chance. I love your mosaic, and I can't wait to see what Joy Giveaway is all about.

Jann Olson said...

Diane, Oh how I love the smell of fresh pine. I do miss that with having an artifical tree. I played a bit with the picmonkey snow also. Sure is fun! Unusually warm here lately too. However, raining tonight. No snow in the forcast.
Hugs,
Jann

I think a little snow would be a welcomed change.~Ames

Chenille Cottage said...

Hi Diane!
Oh...You trickster! Don't you just love Picmonkey?! I have so much fun tweaking my photos with it.

Your wreath on the inside of your door is such a good idea. That way all the sweet fragrance stays inside where you and your hubby can enjoy it.

I hope you have a great week, my friend,
Blessings,

how lovely to have a sweet smelling wreath. Mine only has dried bits and pieces on it. I should make a new one!
Have a wonderful week. I am linking up to you through Mosaic Monday.

Della said...

I love what you do with that program! The pic with the snow is FUN!

Kim said...

I think I would enjoy that balmy 77 degrees! Every year I dislike the snow more and more, we really need to move.
