Winter Wreath and Snow...lots and lots of snow.

Well yesterday it snowed and snowed and snowed until we had over 30 cm of snow.
  It took me 2 hours of shoveling to clear the driveway and sidewalk. 
Some newspapers are calling it, "Fifty Shades of White". 
 I thought that was funny.

Every year I know that winter is coming, but I forgot how quick it can come.
The good thing is now my mother can put out her winter wreath
and flower arrangement
that we did a couple of weeks ago.

 I love how this flower arrangement turned out.

I followed the old thriller, filler, spiller idea.
Here's the thriller.
(twirlly sticks and long red blossoms)

some spiller

great filler
(tons of colour and texture)

I love how the white pops and the grey softens the whole thing.
She loves it and so do I.


  1. Good Evening Karyn, I am sitting here, drinking my hot chocolate and your first photo makes it very apt. So much snow! I like your pretty wreath for the door and the flower arrangement. I love the term, thriller, filler and spiller, I shall have to remember that. Have a lovely evening. Best wishes Daphne

  2. Oh my goodness, I literally gasped when I saw the pics of the snow covering your patio furniture. Oh my. I heart Edmonton winterssssss! (said in a sarcastic voice!)
