Ryan and I spent a blissful day last week foraging in the woods near our home for beautiful natural elements to incorporate in to our Winter wreath designs... it was such a beautiful, crisp and clear day, it really blew the cobwebs away and you could see how much was still growing vigorously in this mild weather we've been enjoying! There's nothing like being outside amongst things that are growing to make me feel grateful, grounded, and festive. Ryan beautifully captured the gorgeous day we got for it and looking at these shots makes me so happy - I had such a good time...
We piled our spoils in to the car, along with a few bits I had bought for the job from the wholesaler, and took them up to our studio where we set about crafting our wreaths. Such a simple and beautiful way to celebrate the season, focus on what matters (family, creativity, growth, nature, happiness!) and let the things you've foraged inform your designs... I really like to let the branches, twigs, seed pods speak for themselves in the most part... it seems only right sometimes to bring the outdoors in, in a minimally tamed and contrived way. We had a lovely time creating these wreaths, and we hope you enjoy this little insight in to our day, well spent.
This will be our final post of 2015, and we are sending our warmest festive wishes out to all our friends, colleagues and followers and want to say thank you for your support this year. We hope you all have your halls decked, mulled wine simmering and gifts wrapped, and spend these last few days of the year reflecting on what's been, and what will be coming next... I know we will be!
Merry Christmas, and lots of love from us!
Abigail & Ryan
