We woke up Sunday morning with some snow.  How I wish this would hang in there for Christmas but sadly the temperature will warm just enough that we won’t have a white Christmas.

Our front porch is filled with a fresh balsam wreath and fresh greens are added to our urns.

Our urns are filled with wonderful greens, Christmas balls and snow covered pinecones.

The smell of fresh pine greets and will welcome family and friends when they are visiting over the Christmas season.

A bundle of birch logs tied  up in a beautiful Tartan ribbon will remind everyone who enters they will warm up with a wonderful fire while visiting.

The lantern below will remind them of the warmth of candle light when always visiting our home.

Wreathes on the windows add more warmth and a welcoming feeling with they’re burlap Poinsettias and Tartan ribbon.

While making the way to our door my childhood sled and a pair of vintage skates filled with greens makes our family and guests hopefully have a reminder of younger days of sledding and skating.

While parking their cars may the hanging of swags with Tartan ribbon be a hint of how warm and welcome they will feel as they get ready to take the walk to our front door.

As all our family pulls in the driveway they will be able to see our shed with beautiful wreathes hanging to greet them saying the beginning of our Christmas journey at Cindy and John’s.
