        I’m guessing the key is to choose the correct greenery since it could be a big ol’ mess if I use my Nordic Spruce branches from the yard! Thanks for reading! Happy Monday, Amy.

    I LOVE Pam Pierce's work. She is one of my very favorites and the above rooms are no exception. But what I love even more is my Pompom wreath! Did you get my email telling you just how much i adore it? It looks pretty every single place I put it. I walked around holding it up in so many places in my house, and it was tough deciding where it would finally hang. What's so cool is that i can keep it up all year round too…
    now to catch up on you, i've missed soooo many posts!
