    I have green leaf ribbon just like that that I found in Montreal. I’m going this Friday, so I’ll look for red! Love the nordic Canadian vibe 🙂

    Love this! So different and simple. Wreath hop is a such a great idea. I would love to be involved next time you guys do something similar 🙂

    I thought of you yesterday because I needed an embroidery hoop, but was not about to run yet another errand for something totally random. I vowed that I will follow your lead and pick some up next time I see them at a thrift store.
    Such a cute project!

    Oh, man – – what do I love most? The red leaf ribbon or the embroidery hoop border or that trio of yarn or the bells in the middle? Not sure! I think the beauty of it is how well all these elements work together. Job well done, Alex! (I, too, am a lover of all things nordic and Scandinavian. Maybe it’s the 25% Swedish in me!?) Pinning!

    Love this Canadian wreath blog hop with so many sweet familiar faces! Off to see Ingrid.

    Oh my goodness, Alex… this is so, so cute! I love the different textures that you used to create this wreath. Very Scandinavian! And I’m completely jealous of all the fun stuff you have at your dollar store. I went to ours last week to see if I could find a small crate and quickly realized we are not shopping at the same store.
