Christmas Greens & Trims

This year Urban Oasis is excited to have our wreaths being made by the fabulous
Sarah Williams, a Goddess with Greens

Sarah has been busy, collecting, pruning, snipping, and wiring away her wonderful creations this week, it's exhausting watching her go.

Every wreath is a one of a kind, made with local materials most often harvested by some volunteer pruning to a neighbor in need. Sarah is also a budding garden coach, who's clients are happy to let her do a little timely tidying of their shrubs in exchange for materials.

The store not only is starting to look a lot like Christmas, it smells like it too.

The Holly is beautiful this year, and Sarah has access to some really cool, rare varieties.

Sarah has whipped up a bushel of bows, that can be purchased ready made for your own decorating, many of us know how hard it is to make a nice bow. Sara makes it look easy, hmff.

I love this ribbon, Sarah has many wonderful ribbons to choose from.

Here are just a few of her door swags.

Very good prices too.

You have to check out Sarah's trims at the craft fair, her hand folded ribbon balls will be a Christmas ornament treasure for years to come.

lots of gorgeous choices, in the rich colors and textures of real ribbon.

This is a stocking stuffer someone will appreciate for many years, it could be a family heirloom one day.
