letter i..... ICE WREATHS!!!!



it's tradition here at my house... to celebrate winter by making ice wreaths!
usually i make nature themed ice wreaths... with pinecones, needles and what not. but this year, i decided to make "life saver colors!" you know... jazz things up a bit... i just added food coloring to the water before freezing it, in the freezer.


i even found a use for "used orange peels," by adding them to the water before freezing ... i think they add a little pizazz to a grey winter day!

it seems like every garage sale i stop at... has bundt type molds.
that's when i pick them up, for squeaky cheap!
i use heavy colored rope to tie them from an old branch i propped on the patio.



each time i look at these outside my window... i smile and think of jumbo life-savers!
i hope you like them, too!

Those look so pretty against the white snow background! I especially like the ones with the orange peel. :-)
