the ever-evolving wreath just evolved for twenty twelve...

PJB_holidaywreath2012_2 For those who have been reading my blog since the beginning (it's been 5 years this month!), you might recall my early attempts at the ever-evolving wreath back in Amsterdam, using materials I had on hand. Now in Sydney, I started a new wreath this time last year, using an embroidery hoop as a base and adding cut branches and found foliage from my backyard. This is what it looked like in 2011...

Then I let it wither and age, and fell in love with it even more...

It has been resting on top of the piano for most of the year, although I did use it as a prop for a very special shoot a few months back (to be revealed in the next post). For the holiday season this year I have added hydrangeas and seed pods from the back garden, and this is what it looks like now, for 2012...

Do you like it? I'm really happy with it. I'm not sure how well it will age, the hydrangeas may just shrink and brown, but we'll see, I'll keep you posted.

PS and I managed to sneak a little blossom behind her ear when she wasn't looking...
