Oldie for Friday - Friday 25th July 2014

Hello Friends,

I think I finally caught up with all of your lovely blog posts...yesterday was  an 11 hour day at work, so I didn't  feel much like looking at my computer when I got home - don't feel sorry for me, it was my choice! I'm on the library's committee, made up of library users, Councillors and those of us who work for community organisations with an office in the library. I don't much like meetings, but I always enjoy this one - a nice bunch of people. The meeting didn't start until 7pm, so there was no point coming home and it was a chance to catch up with a few things.

Anyway,  today I thought I would join Patricia and Hazel and take part in Oldie for Friday which is run by, Erica,   deets at

My oldie is last year's summer door wreath, which has lasted through to this year and is adorning our front door again My regular blog friends will know that I always have a wreath on my front door, sometimes I made new ones,  often I'll reuse them and I change them for seasons and/or Holidays.

I made all the flowers from ribbons and the leaves are felt; it was actually one of my DT creations for Fantastic Ribbons.

So folks, hope you enjoyed my little revisit! 

Love and Hugs,
Carole X

  8. Hi Carole : )

    This is my second comment but the first one appears to have been lost???? Here is my second try - I do hope it is not a repeat.

    I really love your wreath! I especially admire the flowers created from ribbons!! they look so real!!

    Have a wonderful weekend friend.


  9. Morning Carole,
    Just lovely.

  10. Such a cheerful and inviting wreath. It is a wonderful idea to have something like this up on one's front door throughout the year. I might just wreath lift this idea from you.

  11. I'm like you, always having a wreath on the front door, they just make me smile. I love the flowers that you made for this, so pretty!! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  12. I wonder, Carole, could you reach through my monitor and close my mouth? This is simply gorgeous!! I've had a fun time catching up on some posts I've missed; I even missed last week's WOYWW, so that was fun to read - cool lanterns! I did want to say specifically that I think you did a marvelous job with your CAS cards! We are a funny lot, aren't we? I am at ease with CAS cards and feel like layered cards are so beyond the scope of my capabilities and then there are other MEGA-talented crafters like you who long to be able to do CAS! Just life, isn't it? Sort of always wanting the other thing. Like how badly I wish I could sing, since I can't worth a darn. Now you're prolly wishing I'd stop talking!! Okay. Hugs, Darnell

    1. Darnell, never stop talking, you always make me smile! Thank you X

  13. Hi Carole

    I am trying hard to catch up with everyone after a manic week last week .. .. I do believe things "might" be a little more normal this week!! Hope they aren't famous last words!!

    I can remember your wreath from last year. Loved it then and still love it now!!

    Hope you have had a good weekend.

    Love Jules xx

  14. Hi Carole,
    I am also trying to catch up with everyone. I think I do remember this superb door wreath.
    I thought it was amazing and stunning at the time, and those superb ribbon flowers are fab.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  15. Lovely wreath it's gorgeous. That's interesting what Darnell was saying about CAS cards, I think they can be really difficult to make them look finished.
    You know what I mean, when they work they look so clean and well gorgeous.
    Happy crafting, Angela x

  16. Hello Carole : )

    I do hope this post shows up. I think I am having trouble with my Google account as I have posted twice before this but the posts are not showing. I waited a few days and I will try again now : )

    I am really loving this darling wreath. Those ribbon flowers are simply brilliant!

    I hope all is well with you.


  17. Yeah! finally it worked : )

  18. This is beautiful! So lovely to have a chance to see this since I hadn't started blogging last summer. A gorgeous wreath and the ribbon flowers look fab!
