Merry Makings....

 
this Christmas I have turned my attention
to fresh
 Pink Carnations
I love these flowers and I find that they
last for a very long time
perfect for Christmas decorating
I have been sticking them in wreaths,
on top of tins filled with baking to be given away,
and in tiny vases around my Christmas home 
~ 
I hope to show you more ideas in days to come
but please bare with me as
my computer with all my photos
has died
I am getting familiar with a  whole new
system and a completely different computer
wish me luck

That is a wonderful idea to stick pink carnations in wreaths and I like your example. I think I will buy some for bouquets, which I wouldn't have thought of for Christmas. Thanks for the idea.

Good luck with the computer, they do create challenges. Love the pink carnations. I was just thinking I needed some red carnations for decorating. Sweet, sweet wreath too.

Oh no! So sorry about your computer, Koralee--it's horrible when that happens...hard to get used to a new system, but I know you'll do it beautifully, as you do everything so beautifully...

Thank-you so much for the lovely Christmas card, my friend...what a sweet thing to have done! I'm very slow this year--need to get on the ball! Thank-you for thinking of me...

Wishing you the most wonderful week--I love pink carnations, too & I can see that they're helping to make your home merry & bright!
