I am so excited to share a project that I have been wanting to tackle for awhile. A couple weeks ago I asked a friend about coming over to make ornament wreaths with me. I spent a week gathering vintage ornaments at a few different thrift stores. Making the wreath really becomes inexpensive when you can by all the ornaments thrifted.

To top last week off I also became sick the previous weekend. I am feeling much, much better now and am excited to share a little bit of Christmas inspiration from our previous home.
