Here is a wreath that I made quite a few years ago. It is made with all new bulbs and most of them are breakable... not advisable! I finally repaired/replaced the broken bulbs just days before Christmas (2007)! I love it and it is still one, ya one, of my favorites.
Did I tell you that I carried a wreath instead of a bouquet for my wedding. Wreaths hold a bit of symbolism. The most predominant being that when made of evergreens, the most popular material, they represent strength of life. Hmm, this wreath is mostly made up of breakable bulbs! Perhaps that is to say that the love we share for the holidays should not be taken for granted but given also throughout the year. Love can be fragil and strong. When we stick together, wreath/circle, we are stronger...love makes us stronger, through good and bad, sickness and in health.
I hope that you all had a great weekend!
