Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
In the lane, snow is glistening,
A beautiful site,
We're happy tonight. 
Walking in a winter wonderland.

I am not sure about your neighborhood but my neighborhood had two unseasonably warm days that allowed us to be outside like it was mid-fall and not looming winter. I was even able to decorate my front door for Christmas.

My newly painted front door wanted a new wreath. So, I had to give it one.

I wanted a white wreath. Not the kind that use to be green but has been painted white to look like snow. I wanted all white.  I found a few online for a lot more than I wanted to pay and I started to get discouraged. Then I called Michael's and inquired if they had any white wreaths. Lucky me, they did!

The finishing touch for this wreath is a red bird. My Husband is a Louisville Cardinal so he thinks I made the choice for him. My Grandma use to decorate with birds every year. Some will be reminded of her. {Myself included.} But honestly, I picked the red bird because he just made this wreath pop!

I added a few floral picks to the wreath, after I cut off the pine cone. Adding the picks were easy with some inexpensive floral wire. 

Gone Away is the blue bird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song, 
as we go along,
Walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
Then pretend he is Parson Brown

He'll say: Are you married?
We'll say: No, man.
But you can do the job 
When you're in town.

When it snows, ain't it thrilling,
Though your nose gets a chilling
We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,
walking in a winter wonderland.
