Nester's Garland Show and Tell

My garland is probably a bit different from most.  Mine is a garland I did for Thanksgiving instead of for Christmas.  

The inspiration to get started came from a desire to use the dried orange roses from my wedding.  

I ended up pulling out stashes of dried leaves that I'd bought at MJDesign (wow!  remember when that store was in business?  I've had these a while!)  bittersweet that I'd bought two years ago at Canton, two garlands of white berries (again from Canton) and some random sprigs of fake berries I'd picked up here and there.  

I especially love how it looked when my husband hung the top of an old door frame beneath it that I'd picked up for $5 (again at Canton!) last year and never yet used.  

Nester, thanks for hosting this garland show and tell!  Kelly

What a wonderful way to showcase your roses... I love your fall garland, into the idea banks for next year.

Creative as always! I love the old doorframe. You can always make something from nothing, which reminds me of the children's books "Joseph Had a Little Overcoat". Imagine that!

I love this garland and your stocking garland (it's my fave)!

I also love all things Canton. That place a bit of heaven on earth for me.

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of
content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?
