Our Home Decor

As I was walking through our first-time home with our home inspector, he asked me if I’d ever owned a home before. I told him that this would be our first.

It had wall-to-wall soiled mauve carpet on all three levels, but in my mind’s eye I could envision the heart-pine floors buried underneath! I was smitten with the millwork, chunky moldings, and gorgeous staircase, and looked past the sagging ceiling and aging roof. I knew I could make this house a home!

The box will work great for you to store it in when it is not on display. The ribbon is wire edged and can easily be reshaped if needed. Ribbons may be tucked around the wreath for shipping purposes. This allows for a smaller box which helps keep shipping costs down. You may need to fluff them a little before displaying. Please note, these wreaths are not intended for direct weather elements.
