Curt & I took a Saturday afternoon and had a little adventure up in Colonial Williamsburg. We were focused on a dinner date, but I made him go up a few hours early so we could wander around and get some photos. Well, we were lucky to have a nicely overcast day (with good natural light) and the village was decked out for the holidays with all sorts of natural decor. I heard one of the villagers, aka a person in colonial garb, talking about the decorations and, apparently, the homes in the historic section can only be adorned with materials that would have been available in the 18th century. As we were walking I joked about coming up with a blog post about this and Curt chimed in with "wreathtastic" as a descriptor...we laughed and laughed and now here it is! Enjoy!
A little more detail at Chowning's...love those little "ales"
A few close-up shots...love the dried floral & fruit details
Even with supposed limits on the materials, the creativity in these bits isn't limited at all! I didn't get many good shots of the more non-traditional materials like cotton or feathers or antlers.
And, finally, while we waited for dinner, a little shot of us. :)
