My husband's family was over for a little Christmas cheer today!
It was quite a lovely day, and I so enjoy having a little one running
about the house! He loved Mickey's train and pup-pup and the
many candy canes I had stocked at the candy station!
Sigh, the joy of a little one is so contagious!
Before I turn in for the evening, I thought I would do a quick post
with pictures of our front porch decked out for the holidays....
This year, we chose to swag pine and white twinklies around the porch roof and
around the front door.
I felt so inspired by the urns at a local law office last year that I
tried to recreate them using my old fiberglass urns from Big Lots.
I bought branches that were already sprayed white from our local
greenhouse and poked those down in the center of the urns.
Then I filled them with blue spruce, boxwood, cedar and white pine clippings.
I paired the urns with my trees that we found at a flea market a few years ago.
For the front door, I opted for a cedar spray topped with vintage skates
hung by a big burlap bow...
On to what I have decided is my absolute most favorite Christmas decoration
this year! It is so simple, so easy, yet gives such an impact!
But unfortunately, my photography skills don't do it justice.
All I did was place a vintage jar on each step in our dark interior stairwell.
Each jar is adorned with fresh boxwood tied on with twine and
filled with epsom salt and a battery operated twinkly tea lite...
I keep walking up and down the stairs just because it feels so enchanting to me.
Yes, I know, it doesn't take much to get me all geeked up! :-)
I hope you are enjoying your holiday festivities and cherishing
the special moments with your families!
Good night and sweet dreams!
