The Berry Patch House Christmas Porch

I love “firsts” don’t you?

Well I have a first for you today!

The Berry Patch House has a wonderful porch, perfect for decorating for the seasons.

Only one negative though ….. no electrical outlets on the porch,

so I will have to add some sparkle in other ways!

Come on in and welcome to the Berry Patch House Christmas Porch.

The Upper Porch Dressed for the Holidays with Chinoiserie

It was supposed to be a birthday and Valentine’s Day gift,

an outdoor rug that I saw in the Frontgate catalog

that I fell in love with!

I ordered it and they said it was on back order.

OK . . . I can wait, but it took 9 months! . . . . But have to say, it was worth the wait.

Christmas 2015 Front Porch with Rudy

Welcome to my front porch dressed for Christmas,

featuring Rudy.

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.

Our Great Room Christmas Mantel

Our Great Room Christmas mantel this year 

is probably the most simplistic mantel that I have created.

I promised myself this year

that I am really going to downsize my Christmas decorations.

I did give many boxes of Christmas ornaments, florals and decorations

along with a couple of trees to Habitat last year.

However, I did keep these little trees!

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas -The Christmas 2014 Front Porch

Twas the Night Before Christmas . . .

When all through the house . . . . not a creature was stirring . . . not even a mouse!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care . . .

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

Gingerbread and Flowers

I have a very long to do list today…

So I got up this morning at 6a.m. to start on that list…

Gingerbread Pancake Mix Tin Arrangement

This tin is from Williams-Sonoma……it contained gingerbread flavored pancake/waffle mix…

—– and it was awesome!

With eyes barely open and my coffee cup in one hand I proceed to start to work…

I have not been to Williams-Sonoma lately (other than the outlet store)…

—– I am hoping they will have this mix this season.

I placed copper leaf stems that I bought last year on clearance…

—– and added stems/picks of greenery.

I felt that the copper stems went well with the tin.

Did I tell that I just love this ribbon?

I buy these beautiful ribbons on sale after Christmas..

—– usually for 75% off…. which is great when a roll is $25.00!!

So here is the finished product.

It will be hanging in the clubhouse for the craft/artisan show…

—– hope someone likes the color of copper!!!

And on an entirely different note:
