This is an Antipodean-style summer wreath I made a while ago as a project for Extra Curricular magazine, the fourth issue of which has just now arrived in local bookshops here. Extra Curricular is a beautifully-produced little book put together by Ellie in Auckland, (I was lucky enough to be featured in the first edition) and this issue comes with an extra little booklet of holiday activities. The wreath I made originally (from branches and leaves of the bottle brush tree, before it flowered, and a paua shell and strawflowers for colour) has now rather dried out as its been hanging in a very sunny part of the house. But the branches now make a good frame for tucking new foliage and dried flowers into.
I wish you a happy and peaceful weekend. See you on Monday.
