Most readers know that I've had a grapevine wreath wound with ivy on our front door for a long, long time and just change it out seasonally. A few years ago I added a little chalkboard to the center, and change its message for various holidays.
Back in March, I changed the chalkboard message to "Hope in God" and added some forsythia to the wreath. In summer I kept the message the same and added some daisies and American flags; in fall, some red leaves and yellow mums in addition to the flags. I've kept the same chalkboard message all of these months since it is really the most important message I can put there.
A few weeks ago I augmented the silk ivy with some pine and fir sprigs from around our yard. I added some faux red berries and stuck in a couple of gold snowflakes, keeping some American flags in place as well. It's a little quirky I guess, but a look I really like.
And "Hope in God" is still the message. He is in control!
