Day Eight Of A Nontraditional Christmas

I associated milky white pearls with the line "Eight maids a milking".  The directive for the eighth day was to make/buy an item with pearls.  My inspiration for this day was a beautiful wreath that I had seen at the Spotted Canary website.  I took an 8" styrofoam wreath and covered it with a wide cream-colored satin ribbon.  I added vintage buttons in browns and creams, pearl flourishes and Prima flowers to decorate the wreath.  The vintage lace is from my DT sister Charlotte. :-)  My Secret Sister said that this wreath is so her and it warmed my heart to hear her say that. :-)
