Bottle Brush Wreath

A few years ago, I won this vintage bottle brush flocked wreath on eBay. To say I was excited to win, well, that would be an understatement. It's definitely one of my most favorite Christmas decorations ever!
The other day, I ran outside to capture snow coming down at our front door - it was so pretty! Bottle brush wreaths bring back wonderful memories of my childhood. My mom had two wreaths very similar to mine, only hers were white with red balls and bows. Those two Frederick & Nelson wreaths hung on our front doors every Christmas for as long as I can remember. Well, about 15 Christmases ago, I told her that I thought her front doors needed a change so.... she gave 'em to the Goodwill! Uh-oh, she should never have listened to me!!

Karoline this is so pretty! I love the real snow in the picture too. We never get snow here in Eastern NC.

Have a wonderful Christmas.

The PERFECT PINK way to welcome friends and family into your home! Love it! Love the snow falling, too. We don't get snow here, but we have frost on the roof tops. That's our "white" Christmas!

I love those pictures. The skates look so nice hanging there too.

p.s. we share a similar taste in Christmas music (&, it seems many other things). The Carpenters are an absolute favorite here.

Your entrance is perfect with the rose skates and the rose bottle brush wreath. I never saw these little bottle brush trees here, except for Lemax' which isn't typical dutch ;-). But I know them from Germany, that's more of a Christmas country. Have a nice weekend!

Your bottle brush wreath is beautiful. I don't think I have ever seen a big one like that before. I will have to keep my eye out for one.
