So, what happened? Well, there was eight of us and between us we made one star, one heart, two bunches and 13 wreaths. We make not only for our front doors but for friends and family. And as well as our creative prowess, we managed to heroically munch our way through a most delectable Jacobs join, mincepies and cake, tea and coffee.
So, how does this fit in with today's words from Julie? Well, apart from all the leylandii, yew, sitka spruce, laurel, acuba japonica we always have HOLLY and IVY and this year, Eldest and I used the variegated green and gold from our garden.
Want to see some of our efforts?

Having just added these photos, I realise I have not taken photos of everyone's beautiful creations - I try to record our efforts and must have hundreds of images from over the years. Never mind, these give you a flavour. And yes, some of those wreaths sitting on a snowy ground.
Any hoo - a few more pix of said huge white tangle wreath...
Joining in with Julie's Advent 2017,
see you tomorrow x
