A special 100th celebration!

This week marks my 100th post in this blogosphere! 

I have made many friends and learned so much from all of you. I feel as if we are in it together!

To celebrate, I am offering a 24" hydrangea wreath created out of the many hydrangea bushes we have. Since the hydrangea blooms are still drying (can't rush this stage), I will have to substitute a photo similar to what I'll be creating:

These are a few of the hydrangeas (as they were before drying) that I'll be using:
