Snowy Saturday Added Charm

 

 A little touch of snow added charm to our Christmas decorated home.

This year I added some new touches to our porch.  The Pineapple cages are new and are filled with red balls.  They sit on top of faux wreath blanks we had in the basement.

Love our wreath on the front door.  It is real with greens on both sides so no concerns of scratching the door.

 When friends and family arrive during the entire month of December they will be greeted with the beautiful smell of plenty of fresh greens.

This is my childhood sled adorned with a mini wreath.

I purchased a small lantern with a candle on a timer for the evening.  The ice skates I bought a few years ago on eBay for $4.00.   The greens add a festive touch.

A larger lantern with another candle with a timer adds some more warmth.. I can’t wait for you to continue to read further for the night views.  I wanted the flame to be directly in the center of the wreath.

Next, you are seeing our garage area.  Both lights have small live wreathes.  Since we had a few warmer days and the sun sits on this side the wreathes got a tiny bit dry.  With the colder temps they will be fine. for the rest of the season.

These pots sit on either side of the garage.

I will let you take in the house in the evening, hope you enjoy!

One last look in the evening.

Yesterday, I baked my first two batches of cookies.  Eggnog biscotti and Salted Caramel chip cookies.

Hope you are enjoying yourselves as much as I am this Christmas.

  2. Oh Cindy, it’s all just beautiful! I love the unique pineapples filled with the red balls. I have 3 sleds, but not one of them is mine from my childhood. Two of my sisters and I probably wore ours out. Lol! We lived at the bottom of a double hill and sled constantly. Back in the day the roads would be packed and they would close the road at the top and the bottom. Oh, what childhood fun!
    hugs.

  3. You have a beautiful home- I love this kind of style. Love all the wreaths and how you created such a charming welcome on the porch. I really like those gold pineapples with the red ornaments. Such a original and unique look! I wish we had kept some more treasures from when I was a kid like the sled. Happy Holidays!
