Great banner Joanna!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

Thank you Rj and Arlene. Arlene, you're right, it has a wonderful fragrance! I even cut several small pieces and put them in a bowl in my bathroom. Tomorrow, I'll be making a wreath for my front door.

I love the evergreen boughs at Christmas time. Your photo looks like the branches of an eastern white pine which is a favorite in my yard. Very nice Joanna! Thumbs up

Thank you @lauriebasler!

And this is what became of those beautiful branches once the pictures were taken and the banner was made:

Everything is from the dollar store, the one where each item really only costs one dollar! I think the entire thing cost about $5, give or take.

I love it. The wreaths people make themselves are always the best.
:iagree: Don't you just love the Dollar store. Lots of stocking stuffers from there this year. Instead of one Calendar, I got a couple for house plants and two for the garden shed.
Nice banner and lovely wreath, @joannakat.
Happy New Year!
