Live Wreath Class At The Village Herb Shop!

We started with this!

And Ended With This!

And This!

My Herbal Companion, Bonnie and I went up to spend the day with Kathleen Gips at The Village Herb Shop in Chagrin Falls, Ohio for a live wreath class.  I would say that it was intense and when it gets intense, I get chatty!  I apologize to everyone at my table!  I am also a Virgo--Perfectionist!  One of the teachers came up to me and said, "Nancy, it doesn't have to be perfect!"  She knew me right away.  I was able to let the perfection part go and I just got it done.  Everyone said walk around and see everyone else's, but I was so overwhelmed, I couldn't!  Everyone's was beautiful and different.  The bottom photo is Bonnie's wreath.  The Herbal Husband was impressed with the finished product!  It's bigger than our dining room table!  Will have to find a special place for it during the holidays.

Just want to send positive energy to Kathleen and her husband, Jack.  Kathleen was in the hospital with Jack and couldn't be with us.  She was there in spirit and we learned during the class that everything was fine with Jack!  If you are in the Chagrin Falls area, please stop by The Village Herb Shop.  It is chock full of Christmas cheer and items for your Christmas gift giving pleasure!  Hope you had a great day wherever you may be.  Talk to you later!

Those wreaths are magnificent! What is the purple flower? Where are you going to put it?

Tufa Girl said...

How funny am I? I see the purple is the purple salvia (sage). Silly me - must have more caffeine...

Hi TG! The purple sage was from my friend, Bonnie. Well, this wreath is big, heavy and can't be hung up. Sooo we have it on The Herbal Husband's drafting table in front of the mantle! Will try to make it more festive for Christmas with holly, but after all the whining I did (a real drama queen), it really turned out well. I'm glad it can't be a You-Tube moment! Thanks as always for stopping by, TG!

Beautiful! I need to do this now that I have so much in my woods. You have inspired me. :)

As much as I whined seanymph, it is easy to do, really! Never thought I would be inspiring! Thanks!

Beautiful wreaths!! My sister and I were there as well but we made ours at home after purchasing the oasis. I have a picture of mine on my blog.
