Soooo........................budget does not allow us to go any further until the fall - September to be precise
which is really rather depressing - ( as you know I have a very very difficult time in the waiting department )
Now I haven't had time to check emails very often with everything going on - but thank God I took some time out yesterday - really - just THANK GOD
Here's what I received.................

And since I believe I could live very comfortably on 7,500.00 a day - I'm going
to let a lucky participant have the chance to win 100.00 a day ( until it runs
You just have to let me know what you would do with a hundred a day to qualify.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch.................
I've been wanting a square boxwood wreath ( or 2 ) for some time now - but
they're costly - and spending that kind of money on 2 wreaths could buy me
flooring for the mud room ( and more ) so I just can't justify it.............
( not until I start collecting that 7500.00 a week anyway )

MINE - FOR 2.00 EACH
I had a vague memory of something I once saw at a dollar store - for a mere 2.00 each.Not as large as the 20" X 20" and definitely not preserved boxwood but ok for what I wanted them for - which was to use as OUTSIDE decor
Plastic boxwood " tiles " - 12" X 12"
I simply turned it over and cut along the grid following the square shape -
flipped it over - and I had this perfect little square boxwood wreath for next
to nothing - being plastic it's probably even better for outside.
you could make the " hole " in the center smaller and the foliage wider obviously
I'm going to be hanging a slew of these throughout the garden - MORE IS MORE
is my motto lol ( or if you prefer, O.V.E.R.K.I.L.L. )
The possibilities are endless
They'd also make perfect centerpieces for an outdoor dinner party -
Square glass candle holders work beautifully ( think of the different things you could fill these with besides candles )
A couple on each end ( or better yet an entire row of them )
With a white table cloth ( or sheet ) these would make an elegant setting
Or of course you could go far more casual and use mason jars or tin cans -
This is big bang for your buck ( or 2 ) don't you think?
And though they may be just a teeny bit tacky - tacky is perfectly acceptable foroutdoors - especially at twilight or evening when the lighting is dim
And at the end of summer you can bring them in and save them for perfect
Christmas wreaths !!!
Something tells me I'm into something good ♪♫♪
I think I'm going to make a double wreath for the front door
Then I'm going to the dollar store to clear the shelves of these completely
( so if you're in Montreal and can't find any, now you know why )
Donna you're safe - I won't be going up to Quebec City!
And then I'm going to reply to that email - and start the ball rolling with my
anti poverty win
Have a wonderful Sunday all -
Visit the dollar store soon ♥
I'll be at these fabulous parties !
