My dear blogging buddy Jane, from Cottage at the Crossroads, sent me a shoe box full of cotton bolls, fresh picked from the field across from her home!
Thanks again, Jane.
I added some bunches to my Christmas wreath. I made this wreath years ago with magnolia and rose swags from Home Interiors. I felt the cotton bolls would fit in nicely with the magnolias. It looks like snow.
I just recently saw cotton for the first time, and I was very taken with it. I also have had a long time dream to relocate to a warmer climate, or at least be able to get away for the winter. For now, I will look at my magnolia-rose-cotton boll wreath and keep wishing.
In the spirit of wanting to be a "snow bird".
I added a cute snow man slate given to me by my friend, Lily. The bows I save from beautifully wrapped presents from my friend, Addie. Thanks guys!
