Here is my wreath. I love sunflowers. They grew wild back in Michigan along the side of the dirt roads. The birds would drop the seeds as they would fly overhead and up would come a sunflower. 

When we moved to Arizona, I was so homesick for seasons especially fall and spring and I missed my wild fall sunflowers. My father was still alive and living with us and he would feed the birds each day and before summer was over, up came a small sunflower under the tree where the birdfeeder hung. Who would have guessed in the heat of Arizona? It thrived and grew for that first summer and made me feel at home so in honor of a wonderful past memory and now once again I've moved recently to a new home but in Austin, TX this time, I have made a wreath with sunflowers.

I bought the grapevine wreath from Michael's this week for $2.99 and the sunflower bunch was on sale 50% off too. I had a 50% off coupon burning a hole in my pocket so I bought a Bowdabra and ribbon was on sale too! I'm debating on it I like the bow I made. The color of the bow matches the center of the flower but it's hard to see so I may trade out my bow later on. Let me know what you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you'll stop by in the future to see what I'm up to. Hugs from Lorby's World.

    Those 50% off coupons are dangerous, like you said even if you find everything on sale you need, you still have to find something to use with that coupon! LOL
