Welcome to my front porch dressed for Christmas,
Rudy was given to me years ago by my niece Melissa
and he usually stood in the front yard
confusing the real deer.
Now he stands proudly on the front porch
greeting family and friends wearing his scarf of ribbon.
He’s a cutie!
The lanterns return flanking the top of the steps.
The lanterns look their best when they glow in the evening.
I purchased real evergreen wreaths again this year.
They are beautiful and full . . . and with them only being $15.00/each
at Lowe’s Home Improvement, it truly is a great bargain.
The ribbon is from Michael’s . . . I wish I had purchased more of it!
The large ornaments that hang from the ceiling return again.
I love how they sparkle when the sun or the lights from the garland at night
shine on them.
The right side of the porch.
A message for the season or each and every day
sits in the pitcher of poinsettias.
A peek to into the left side of the porch.
The left side of the porch is where you will find my vintage wagon
and the old weathered door in the corner.
The vintage watering can filled with faux branches of berries.
The wagon is always filled with seasonal pretties and for Christmas,
I added this tree in my 5 gallon Red Wing crock.
It is really pretty when lit at night.
A vintage enamelware pan holds vintage garden tools
and snowball ornaments.
A vintage 5 tier plant stand holds poinsettias.
Every window on the front of my home displays a wreath.
Even above the garage doors.
I began taking some photos of the porch in the glow of the evening.
More photos to come; however, here is a bit of a peek.
I also finished decorating my upper back porch.
Stay tuned for what is new there!
Have a great day! Have you gotten all of your shopping done?
I have not started, so you know what I will be doing this week!
