Monogrammed Valentine’s Wreath

DIY Monogrammed Valentine's WreathI’ve been waiting and waiting…and waiting some more. What for?

The sun.

I’ve had my monogrammed valentine’s wreath on my door for over a week but have not ventured out to shoot any photos because the skies have been grey and dull.

Monogrammed Valentine's WreathI finally had to just go for it.

These pics are OK for now but I’ll be back with better ones when I show you the sitting area.

At least I hope they are better…

Here’s where this wreath started. It was the first wreath I made after painting my front door blue. If you want to read more about the story of my house, I talk about it in this post.

Spring WreathI took out the all the blue flowers…and made use of them in my silver pitcher.

Buffalo Check and Matelasse from On Sutton PlaceI added some little red flowers and a grain sack heart.

Monogrammed Valentine's WreathI’ve had the wood monogram forever…at least over a year but never had the right wreath or basket to use it. Honestly, I had forgotten about it. When I was looking for the red flowers, there it was and it was like I had hit the jack-pot. I gave it a quick coat of Annie Sloan Old White and wired it on. If you want an initial of your own, I found this seller on Etsy and they are very reasonably priced.

As luck would have it the sun is shining as I write this and the skies are clear. It’s freezing though so I’m not sure I’ll get outside for those pics I promised. I hope the skies are blue where you are…see you soon!

    Just love the wreath!

    And I am newly in love with Matelasse and am reworking my bedroom around a coverlet I found at Tuesday Morning and a new iron bed ordered from Wesley Allen. Your site has provided lots of inspiration for new pillows to go on the bed!

    I thought I had signed up to received emails announcing new posts, but I don’t seem to be getting them. Can you help me got on that list?!?!
    Thanks!
