The linky feature for At the Picket Fence is doors and porches
When I think of Christmas, one of the things that crosses my mind is snow capped covered mountains. My family has such a love for the outdoors.
I have so much fun decorating our porch with an outdoor theme.
This black drop leaf table holds a mixture of pine boughs I clipped from my FIL’S yard, It once belonged to his parents.
My large lantern filled with pinecones, a white pumpkin saved from Fall, a crystal garland, dried hydrangeas, rose hips, and three jumbo bells complete the vignette.
Hubby and I no longer ski. Probably because we feel about as old as these ski’s look. lol! Actually haven’t skied since college days. Couldn’t afford it as newlyweds.
I am mad for tartan plaids! Thermos and coolers all ready to serve up some hot chocolate.
One never knows when they might need a bit of tape.
Old ice skates are so fun to decorate with. Look at this darling child’s pair I bought in WI. They say Lake Placid on them. The red leggings I bought at an estate sale for $1.50
Hubby and I do like to snowshoe. Only made it out once last winter. So fun, we need to go more often.
The red lantern once belonged to my FIL.
Silvery houses light up at night.
Wish I would’ve taken a picture of our home with the lights on.
Houses all lit up at Christmas time are so magical. Especially in the eyes of a child. I took my 22 month old grandson for a ride to see the lights. He would excitedly say, “I see it, I see it”. And then I’d hear, “WOW”! I don’t know who enjoyed it more, him or me.
What a wonderful season!
I will be sharing my porch with:
