So Ugly it is Cute?

If I don't get some things done around my yard and office I'm going to have one sorry winter and my hubby might ground me from the computer, which is most definitely justified. I feel like if I get everything done outside, then I can have an enjoyable and relaxing winter. The problem is that I actually have to do the work. I can't just sit around and gaze into blogland or Pinterest... and let's not forget the children... who is actually watching them or better yet, taking care of their needs? Not sure, I'm on the *%$# computer. (on a side note... the best part of posting on this blog is that it cleans up my language a little... fortunate for the reader I guess, although most are probably adults... haha okay, all of my 12 readers are probably adults.) Anyhow, I do have one of the biggest potty mouths, but that is my one and only flaw....lmao! Uh oh, now I got myself started... okay okay I'm rambling and I promise to keep this blog G rated from now on.
This lovely little wreath pictured below is the first one I have ever made. Not sure I like it but I did make it myself, and sometimes that is all that matters. I got the basic design style from K.I.S.S and that can be seen HERE. I think burlap is a great material for fall. I'm still staring at the picture trying to decide if its cute or ugly? Stylish? I don't know... I didn't want to use traditional fall colors because that is so last season... hahaha... You can't sense my sarcasm via text but I'm quite the smart alick... and I shouldn't even be allowed to use the phrase, "so last season," considering I still have clothes hanging in my closet from high school... oh, and I wear them!
Ugly or cute, doesn't really matter... I like it! I made the entire thing out of recycled or upcycled items. The flowers used to be maternity shirts and centers were old earrings. The yellow and gold embellishment was on a hair comb that I painted. The burlap I had on hand and I covered up an old ugly wreath that had seen better days. Happy Fall Ya'll!

It's funny how blogging does clean up your language! The wreath looks fab, love those flowers.

Felting flowers is all the rage this season. I've yet to try it but I'm all up for re-using and recycling! Thanks for sharing!

Your post made me laugh.

Have a happy weekend!
