The Finished Product-My Beautiful Arbor!

Isn't is beautiful?  It is my new "Happy place."  Now, do I purchase clematis to grow over the arbor or wisteria?  If I go with clematis, I would like to find some that bloom blue or red.  Wisteria is so pretty with its purple blooms, but it attracts bees.  Any thoughts/ suggestions for other vine plants?
A huge THANK YOU to my husband for building this for me!

It's coming along!

    It's almost complete!  Landscape is finished.  Now, let the painting begin!

Red, White, and Blue!

This wreath was so much fun to make!  Perfect for the summer months! I found the cutest navy with white polkadot ribbon to spiral around the wreath.  Then, I added different assortments of red, white, and blue flowers.  I attached some other accessories, such as the flag.  To complete the wreath, I used white spray paint to cover a piece of chipboard which displays our last name initial.  Finally, I created a bow using the leftover ribbon to attach to the top of the "R." So easy to do!
