How many times have you said those 4 little words and later thought, yikes! What have I said yes to now? A few weeks ago my friend Lynn asked if I would be willing to decorate a wreath for an auction benefiting the Oregon Garden. Well of course I would, I'd be happy to... I was happy when I said I would, then as the deadline grew closer I started thinking, I don't want my wreath to not be bid on... I don't want the Oregon Garden to have to pay someone to take my pitiful wreath... I need to have an idea... None were forthcoming...oh great, how embarassing, how tragic, I can see the headlines now... "Hideous Christmas Wreath Donated in Silverton." Not that our town hasn't been on the front page of every newspaper and news station in the entire nation, now I will bring further unwanted attention to my friends and neighbors.
Then it came to me (not in a dream) more like a flash... attach the iceskates to the wreath, glitter the blades, tie a white ribbon on, add a little tinsel, a few snowflakes and get over it!
