Holiday wreath

This pretty wreath can be found at the Santa Monica Wednesday Farmers' Market on Arizona Street. The market runs from 8:30 in the morning until 1:30 in the afternoon.

This wreath is made of protea flowers, eucalyptus, and other tropical foliage. The Farmers' Market is a great place to go to get into the holiday spirit.

I have to confess - even though this market is really convenient for me to visit, I let my workday worries distract me enough so I forget to go shopping here regularly. I'm working on my list of New Years' resolutions - I think going to the market should be on there. What do you think? What resolutions are on your list?

That is an awesome wreath.

I used to go to that market. Remember when that poor old man ran his car into one of the stalls and hit some poor young people? I don't know why I thought of that, it was sad. Also, I wasn't there at the time, but lived nearby.

I'll go away now.

That wreath is inspiring! I'm coming your way from Bossy's scene and even though I live in West LA, I so rarely go through the Farmer's Market because I have three young kids and I'm generally insane.

This wreath may get me there....

Cool blog - I could learn more about LA by visiting here...

Lovely wreath Glennis. Very natural -if I compare yours to mine. Liked it.
Farmers Market? I'm afraid it's impossible to find these kinda markets in this city centre:( I enjoy going, touring in shopping malls, they are more than a 'heaven' nowadays, crowded people, shopping people like a crazy as if no crisis hitting the city, and full of incredibly nice -mostly expensive- stuff...! Hardly shopping...;)

That's a very good resolution. I'll see you that one and add I think I'll try to ride my bike and add to the greeness of the experience. I wish we had beautiful wreaths like that. I would get a few.

I'm resolving to shop more at my local market, sometimes I just get lazy but the food is better quality and a lower price.

I love it! I love local farmer's markets. The best one I've ever found is in Asheville, NC. It's HUGE - and there's so much fantastic stuff (like homemade apple butter - YUM)! But all local farmer's markets are great. And I'm with you - it's just hard to remember to GO to them when the local giganto-store is so convenient.

It is a great Farmer's Market.

I want to work on my writing for one of my resolutions this year.
