Finding A Little Summer Amidst The Snow

As you know, we got a whopper of a storm last week, and another on Thursday, which means we will not see grass for quite some time. 

Le sigh. 

However, I figured out a way to bring a little summer into these winter days - and it was easy peasy, my favorite!

A while back I was contacted by ThermaLeaf® and asked if I was interested in doing a product review for them. 


Hey, I'm always interested in new opportunities, so I checked out their page....and I liked what I saw! 

ThermaLeaf® is a company that specializes in fire retardant artificial foliage, plants, and trees and is used in many commercial applications, such as hotels, malls, and office buildings. Their products meet local, national, and international fire codes, and are incredibly realistic in appearance! They even have Christmas trees, and they are so life-like I was truly impressed. They also have plants, foliage, palms, trees - you name it. If you are a person with a brown thumb, perhaps this may be the answer you were looking for!


They were kind enough to gift me this set of two wreaths, which was fantastic as I have been looking for a new wreath ever since I painted the doors, back in the fall. 

I just adore all the summer colors in these wreaths - paired with the sunny yellow doors, they truly brighten my days!

 
Just look how the combo of the yellow door and the summery wreath make the front of the house just scream summer.....despite the giant mounds of snow!


When I have the doors open, the wreaths complement the decor inside my house as well. 

Plus they make me smile!  :)


You wouldn't know, looking at my cheery kitchen, that there's still three feet of snow outside the door!


I'm super happy with my new wreaths, and they are so sturdy and well made I know they are going to brighten my doors for years to come!


I was going to hold off putting them up until the warmer months, but I honestly needed this little spot of summertime right now....it will help get me through the next couple of months, until it's truly spring and gardening season is upon me. 

What do you do to get you through these late winter days when you are dreaming of spring?

    1. Same here, Kris, I think at this point I've had enough. The sunshine the past couple of days was gorgeous....but tonight we are back in winter storm mode. Yuk.

  8. Debbie, your wreath looks a lot like a couple I bought two years ago. Such pretty, cheerful colors! And against that yellow door and white backdrop, beautiful. Just imagine what a green backdrop will look like?! I cannot even begin to fathom all the snow. After reading your last post, it confirms every homeowner's worst nightmare for the potential dangers of that much snow. You are definitely a more rugged woman than I - I salute you!

    1. I've always lived in the Northeast, Rita, so snow was just part of winter - we expect it. However, by this time in March I'm usually ready for it to ease up!!

    1. Yeah, it's worse now, Melanie, because it's been dripping off the roof and creating an ice skating rink on my deck!!!

  10. Hi! Those wreaths ae just beautiful and make your home look so welcoming and cheery. I do like the one wreath holder too with the pineapple. How do you keep those wreath holders from scratching up the doors? Nancy

    1. Hi Nancy! I don't know if the wreath holder is scratching the door because it's always on the door, I always have some sort of a wreath hanging there.

    1. Yippee!!!! I feel as if we won't see any green around here for ages, there's just way too much snow on the ground and more every day. It will make spring that much sweeter when it finally arrives!

  14. THAT's a good way to deal with the damn snow so close to spring! Stick a cheery summer wreath on the door and look ahead :)
