Handmade for Homes of Distinction
flower wreaths like the one above and those sold below are my first love and this
section of my site is devoted to only wreaths made from real plant material that
has been air dried or glycerin preserved. This page has dried flower wreaths that
are more floral. The next page has wreaths that are more rustic and would be popular
in the fall. The third page shows preserved wreaths that you would use in the
winter and during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, but almost all the wreaths
on the first 8 pages of the "Holiday" part of my site (see above) are
made with real preserved foliage usually with artificial accents.
have been enamored with everlastings since I was very young. Although technically
dead, they can be preserved in so many different ways that either prolongs the
beauty they had in life or brings out a whole different look achieved only by
the changes that occur after life is done. I used to grow most of my own everlastings,
but as demand for my wreaths grew I had less time and found suppliers who could
supply better material than what I can grow in my hot humid summers.
flowers have a distinctive, imperfect, varied look that only real plant material
can provide. You will find wreaths made from everlastings in all of my categories
at the tabs above, but this part of my site caters to those people who are "dried
I can treat real dried flowers to withstand exposure, it is obvious that full
sun and exposure to harsh elements will deterioriate any wreath, and especially
one made from real plant material. If you have full, harsh exposure, it is best
to use a combo wreath - one that mixes real plant material with artificial, or
even to go with all artificial. Nevertheless, I have been surprised more than
once, when a repeat customer speaks of a former wreath of real dried plant material
that is 5 or 6 years old and they have decided to replace it now, "even though
it is still pretty."

the effect is very pleasing. Irregular in shape but still balanced, this wreath
has the feel of country. Best hung in a protected place. If on a door - protected

big statement even though it is not huge.

Wreath - Not
a happily ever after heart wreath, but a flame wreath, so symbolic of the reality
of true love. Without fuel it's easily snuffed out. So we must develop the habit
of finding fuel anywhere we can. This wreath is less flowery and more earthy.
Naturalists will love it. A fir background supports cones, berries, fibigia seed
pods, dogwood twigs, buddleia, globe amaranth, polished pebbles and 2 love birds
at the center. This wreath style is great for a wedding, anniversary, or valentine
gift. As a matter of fact, it can be used as fuel, for giving it would be an act

It will come with the story of the flame found below.
Rest of the Love Story
is a flame wreath. I believe a flame shape represents love better than the traditional
heart. It's a symbol of the rest of the "love story" - the part that
lies beyond the popular concept of romantically finding that perfect person to
be with "happily ever after."
of course, will notice the flame shape is an upside-down heart, and for good reason.
Even in true love our hearts will be turned upside down at times.
a flame begins with just a tiny spark which, if nurtured, will grow until it can't
be snuffed out. Once it is burning strongly, it spreads and spreads. It will only
die from lack of fuel.
my husband and I camped, we knew how important it was to be always looking for
fuel. Our evening campfire was so important. It dried our socks, cooked our meal,
and cheered us at the end of a long day. What if we couldn't get the fire going?
What if it rained and everything was wet? But with enough dry tinder we could
even get wet wood to burn. So as we hiked along, we grabbed tinder and stuffed
it into packs or pockets. Always there was something we could get with very little
effort. Everywhere we went we looked, and every evening we had the makings of
we added the larger logs which of course were just as necessary. They held the
blaze for a long time, so we could have time to do other important things.
is like that flame, and tinder is still the same. It's always easily found any
place we go. A small consideration, a touch, a hug, a rub, a tiny gift, a note,
a call, a smile. It's the tinder for the daily fire of love, and it doesn't hurt
to do a little extra, in case there's more than one rainy day. No matter what
the "weather," by always looking for tinder, we can always kindle a
course the large logs are important too. They represent the deep, trusting qualities
of a loving relationship that make it last and last. That deeper love frees and
empowers us to be all that we can be. The logs won't burn without the tinder and
the tinder does not last. It must constantly be renewed. So - both types of fuel
are needed to keep the flame burning bright and long- the tiny tinder and the
big logs - one constantly being renewed - the other deep and enduring.
is a flame wreath - a way to remember the rest of the story.
