Garland Show and Tell




i love being able to put together beautiful garlands.    i really just discovered this love about 3 years ago, and ever since, i look more forward to doing them, than my tree!  isn't that awful?! shhh...don't tell anyone.    

because i keep up with a 1, 2, and 4 year old every day, and because i'm a dork who doesn't have google reader, i don't always know all the goings on out there in bloggy land.   so, today at one of the best playdates ever, (she made me homemade chocolate chip cookies, wore my kids out, and gave me much needed friend time), emily told me to make sure i linked up to nester's garland party.    so, needless to say, i couldn't wait to have an excuse to show mine off!

these are close ups of my front room garland




my dining room garland
 (a little less traditional, but probably my favorite)




the whole thing

can you guess what kind of garland this is?

Check back tomorrow and I'll show and tell!

Loving all the garlands out there in blogland... I went very light on Christmas this year - with the baby coming I am afraid I would never get all my Holiday bits and pieces put away until Springtime! I am going to attempt a nester garand next year for sure!

Your's is beautiful and full and ahhhh just perfect ;)

The rag garland is adorable too of course ;) Love the red toile!!! Can't wait to see the whole thing.
