I think it would be so cool
to have one of those
giant beautiful evergreen wreaths
on my front door
one year I did ....
it was a secret gift in the middle of the night and I still don't know who it came from
.... it just appeared on my front door ....
big, beautiful, extravagant and, oh so, fragrant
... and this is a big but ...
many of the branches that go into the making of those wreaths are harvested illegally
poached from local forests
leaving young trees struggling to survive after being denuded of their branches
(you can read an article about it HERE)
this wreath is made entirely from found objects on the forest floor
pine cones, lichen, moss
and one little token piece of imported plastic
I thought he was uber cute
even though he is plastic
