A Hybrid Handmade Christmas - 'shopping'

This weekend I went out 'shopping' for a Christmas wreath.  The view from this particular shop was, how shall I say, expansive!

I was slightly distracted from my quest by this carpet of stars.

However, I found all the ingredients I needed and a few I wasn't expecting to walk away with (the beautiful leaf skeletons).

Turns out, there was a sale on. I left without spending a single penny.  And that feeling of walking away with something special and beautiful was all the more sweet for it.
