I purged so well I donated my wreath🤦‍♀️

[ Edited ]

Things I do when not paying attention🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Two years ago I bought the most beautiful 30" wreath at Home Depot.

Today, I was putting the outside decor up and couldn't figure out where my wreath was.

While sorting in driveway I was making piles & must have accidentally placed it on top of the "free at curb" things which didn't last long -- I'm sad but I'm sure someone is enjoying it!

I'm sure next year I'll find another..or take a trip to HD tomorrow maybe they'll have nice wreaths again.

I'm sorry for you, but someone was probably thrilled to get it.

Sorry! Someone is enjoying it. My dad made me a beautiful wreath several years ago. I freshen it up with a new bow every few years....

I need to purge more Christmas stuff.

@homedecor1

Having done something similar with clothes, I know how you feel. Somewhere someone is wearing that one item that I meant to keep.....what if I ever ran into her ?????

Tonight I am going to " visit " a special, extremely large wreath that my MIL, DH and I contributed our creativity and hardwork into making. DH and I gave it to my college after we realized we couldn't handle its size and weight anymore. It occupies a place of honor and will be enjoyed by many folks over time.

( I posted and described it in a post a week or so ago in " favorite Christmas ornament " )

It's early, you can buy a new wreath.

Just imagine the Christmas Joy you are giving a family that may not have been able to afford a lovely wreath.

I was going through drawers to donate things I no longer use in my kitchen and I accidently added my favorite pasta tool.....

I know how you feel....
