And, as she's said before, theres' nothing quite like hanging around in a Back Bay alley in broad daylight with a can of spray paint.
The Proper Bostonian only put in about 9 hours out of a possible 12 today, but she is exhausted. She made six wreaths — a very decent number — and here they are, covered in pine boughs, juniper, holly, pinecones, berries, lotus pods, eucalyptus, feathers, glass balls, and glitzy plastic sprays:
This customer requested a plaid bow and gold accents.
This glitzy silver wreath with juniper, eucalyptus, and pinecones,
is destined for the Ritz.
This customer requested a red bow with red, gold, natural, and white accents.
This wreath was "designer's choice, with a soft gold bow and Victorian accents."
I went to town with peacock feathers, berries, balls, gold pinecones,
hypericum, and gold-frosted eucalyptus.
Classic red and gold, with lotus pods.
A bronze bow with large, coordinating pinecones, magnolia leaves,
wild berries, and pheasant feathers. My favorite!
Stay tuned for more wreaths tomorrow, as the PB crams a year of crafty creativity into four balsam-scented days.
