The Christmas rush is over for another year. Now is the time to take advantage of those sales on Christmas decorations and to spruce up anything that looks a bit worn.
My mom bought a wreath to place at my dad’s grave for Christmas, 2012. It held up well and was placed at the cemetery, again, for Christmas, 2013.
When retrieving it, I noticed that a dove---part of the original wreath decor---looked like it was in a scene of the Alfred Hitchcock movie,"The Birds". It hadn’t fared well as you may be able to tell in the first picture.
I then went to After-Christmas sales at local stores and found items to replace the dove. They are similar to these dove ornaments.
The second picture is the finished result. Now, the wreath is ready for next Christmas! A few minutes of TLC in the calm of January will prevent another task from being written on the Christmas, 2014 to-do list.
