Boxwood Wreaths

Bit by Bit

our bedroom is coming together.

I found these

and knew just the place for them.

I love the fact that they are real


for better words.

They came with this pretty sheer ribbon

ready to hang.

But where?

I had too many places I wanted them to go.

For sure

these 3

are staying.

I think.

I wont tell you how many

nail holes

I put in my wall.

I'm sure you can guess.

Oh but wait!

I'm thinking

that maybe the petite one

would look sweet here.




Oh geeze...

I should have bought more


ps..note the wall color

I re-painted my Bathroom Wednesday.

I know..I know..

Yes, I'm "chawed" as Kelly would say.

Any hoodles....

Let's get back to the wreaths shall we?

Then there was this blue frame.

I thought I might add it for color and contrast.

Marc said it looked  "fine"

but he didn't look really.

I think he was tired of me

asking for the 170th time.

So maybe yes to the blue frame?



I will quit asking

and let ya'll

be on your way.

It's the weekend for petes sake.

Have fun!

  1. Susie it looks great! I love the blue frame...a little pop of color. Those wreaths are all looks fabulous!!!


  2. HA! Love the wreaths! Happy Weekend to you too!

  3. they look really cute on the towels!

  4. Love the blue one tossed in for contrast - you need to come have um lunch one day with me...and decorate my's not that far of a drive between friends ;) Have a great weekend!

  5. The blue frame is awesome. Just perfect. Love the wreaths, great post.

  6. Love! The addition of the blue frame - genius. I have some boxwood wreaths packed in the attic for Christmas - thanks for the inspiration to get those babies out.

  7. Beautiful! I love the blue frame that you added...

    Have a great weekend, Susie!


  8. Love the wreaths and the frames. Pretty!!!

  9. Howdy Susie- Love your creations there and yes to the blue frame and the wreath perched on your towels.
    Happy weekend to you my friend!

  10. What a fabulous idea!! I have some large, rectangular wooden frames that I didn't have a use for...not exactly pretty enough to hang on their own, but layered w/ a smaller one and a wreath would make for some great wall art! Thanks for the inspiration!

    Have a great weekend!! xo

  11. What a cute idea! I love open frames and want to incorporate a collage of them somewhere in my home. The wreathes are adorable. Love the new color of your bathroom, too. As for the blue frame--I love the frame--just not sure if I love it as much as I'd like with the grouping of white frames. I think I'd like it more if you replaced the white frame in the upper left (similar in size to the blue frame) with the blue one (so still a grouping of three) and kept the wreath. Maybe that's whats throwing me off other grouping--it's the only blue frame and the only one without a wreath. But what do I know?! I come to your blog for inspiration because everything you do looks so fresh and charming and I want to copy it all!

  12. Susie, I love the blue frame with the others! Gives that "POP" and I love the blue! The wreaths are FAB-O and I love the one in the bathroom on the towel! Definitely a YES from me!

    Have a good weekend!

    Lou Cinda :)

  13. Lovin your frames and boxwood wreaths, they make me smile...

  14. They look great! Did you paint the blue on that frame? I love the color!

  15. You're so funny! I love the wreaths. Very cute.

  16. this is just LOVELY! I like the blue one mixed in with the is just so wonderful...oh and the one in the bathroom is very sweet! I love these!

  17. Do you like opinions??? Thats all they are, just an idea from my decorating soul to yours. Absolutely YES to the wreath on the set of towels!!! Lovely, sharp, neat, pretty. New bathroom paint is so make me want to do a redo in my place. I am struggling with my living room. Painted a wall two months ago, but still not sure its "me". Oh, and I don't care for the blue frame with the other collection. Thanks for sharing!

  18. Nail holes?

    I took down the botanicals in the dining room...something to do with a professional trim guy flaw paw...faux not a social oops, but a definite oops.

    Yesterday, Mr J filled all those holes in, with hope in his heart...short lived afternoon...more nail holes...;-)

    I love those wreaths!! I definitely need a couple.

    PS: The botanicals are finding a happy new home in one of the guest rooms.

  19. Susie those wreaths are just the CUTEST little things I have ever seen! Precious girl!

    Have a blessed weekend. ~Melissa :)

    PS Thank you for checking out my new blog design. You are so sweet.

  20. Susie, I too make 59 nail holes to hang 1 picture. I love the bathroom color, what is it called and who made it. The frames are great, but I agree with The Brick Cottage the blue one looks off somehow. Maybe add another frame in blue so you can balance the existing blue one. That means more holes in the wall, the frame will cover most of themm

  21. Yes to the blue frame and you needed the odd number anyway. So cute! Maybe not on the towels though - you will have to touch it a lot to move it to use the towels. What do you think?

  22. Love love the framed wreaths. Whimsical and feminine.

    For me, don't like the blue frame added in ~ but love the blue paint in your bathroom.

    The wreath on the towel is so cute, but wonder if it would get annyoing after a bit.

    Ha ~ love the extra nail holes.

    You have a such a lovely blog, and a very fascinating post!

    Best wishes for a beautiful weekend. Thank you for your kind words.


  24. That is so beautiful!! I have alot of little frames all over the house that I dont know what to do with. This is a great way to display them!!!

  25. the heck do you do it all?! Oh, and more importantly, when can you come over to my place? :)

    Lovin the new wall color in your bath - it is similar to a color we have in my hubbys "man cave" (aka his office).

    Im not too sure about the lone blue frame....what about if you add another small blue one to the top left frame to balance it out??

    But, Ssheessh...what do I know? You are the amazing one :)

    Have a wonderful weekend!!


    ps - do the preserved boxwood still have an earthy green smell?

  26. LOVE the way you have displayed these! And yes the blue frame should stay in my opinion.

    Would love to find some of these cheap they look great.

  27. I love them! I love the frames even more! I love the blue one, too.

    I have a craft show this weekend...It's the same one I did last year. Pray we have good weather and I do better than I did last year! : )

  28. How very fun, I love the wreaths! Have a lovely lovely weekend, Susie!!

  29. Your frames are beautiful with the little wreaths. I always hope my husband refrains from looking behind any picture I hang. It's a mess!

  30. To me it's distracting, the blue. But what do I know. I put every color in the world together. The contrast of white and green is perfection!

  31. How gorgeous! It reminds me of Christmas. I'm always sad to take my little wreaths down. Wonder where I could find some of these pretties around my neck of the woods...

  40. I love the look of the clean white cotton towels and the bright green wreath hanging in front. Love it! Nice find. Have a great weekend.

  41. Hello Susie

    I LOVE what you did with yours. Such a great idea.

    Take Care,

  42. I love the frames with the wreaths. It looks beautiful.


  43. I Love Boxwood Wreaths- for months i was trying to find them- and cheap but would last-not die- i love all of the ideas you did with them- So Cute-
    i wonder if you could make them?
    SO CUTE-

  44. Hi Susie, OMG, I have been looking for boxwood wreaths! I love how you have them displayed in the frames. So very cute and cleaver!

    xxx, Michelle

  45. I am in love with those wreaths!!!

    The simple framing is so inspiring. I would throw in the blue frame for contrast as well, but I would probably put it in the middle and leave it open.

  46. Yes, yes, yes to the blue frame Susie!
    I love this place. I am always so inspired when I leave.

  47. Susie,

    I love the frames and the boxwood wreaths. What a great idea - something so simple and yet it adds such a great impact to the room.
    I saw that others have already asked this, but what color did you paint your bathroom. I love blue and need to repaint my bedroom, so I'm checking out the different shades of blue.
    You're not the only one with a nail hole problem.

  48. You're the BOMB Susie! Can't wait to copy these!! -Whitney

  49. What color is the blue paint that you chose? I love it! I am wanting to paint our bathroom that color. I'd love to know the name/brand. Thanks!

  50. YES to the blue frame (and to the wreaths over the towels)!! WHat is that gray-blue color of the frame, by chance? I would love to know! :)

  51. I have a bare wall in my living room and have been collecting frames to do something similar. I love the addition of the boxwood wreaths. Beautiful! Would you mind sharing where you found them?

  52. “You can see the techniques of the knit on this style; Bandage Dress one day we will videotape the process of how our pieces are made. Herve Leger sale They weave the base and then hand-apply everything else. And our fit is really key. Oktoberfest Dress These pieces are more like sweaters than anything else—they’re not cut-and-sew, Herve Leger Dresses they’re knits—and that’s why they fit so well. People are so surprised at how well Herve Leger fits, and I tell them it’s all about how the dresses are constructed.”And finally, we dress for what we love too. For what we just can’t resist.
