The Next Level

I have a friend who is a wreath making genius. Her name is Lori and she owns a little shop here in my hometown, which I have mentioned on this blog before, called Rustic Charm. She makes these wonderful wreaths and sells them in her shop (along with a million other adorable things) and has sold them on Etsy in the past. This week she made a beautiful wreath for another friend of mine. This friend, Lisa, has been showing horses her whole life and wanted a wreath to display some of her bounty. I was so impressed with this I just had to share it with you..

Isn’t is amazing? Here is what Lisa said about it on Facebook: “In it are several memories of some great horses I have been blessed with over the years. I have a trophy plague, belt buckles, a head stall, my Miss APHA queen banner, my childhood spurs and a picture of my last show horse. There are a lifetime of memories here. Something I'll treasure for a long time.”
I never thought of a wreath as a canvas for displaying such wonderful memories. It really changes the way you look at making a wreath, doesn’t it? I just think it’s genius.
Just to reinforce how talented Lori is, here are a few more wreaths she’s made..

If you are a wreath maker, I hope this has inspired you to take your talents to the next level. If you’re not, here is a link to Lori’s Facebook page…
I’m sure she would be happy to make one for you! (I know she ships)
Happy Friday.
Love,
Val
