Welcoming Christmas has never been so fun and creative for me in the past!
If my kids read this, they'll be in shock cuz I'm more of a
throw up a wreath and some garland with lights kind of a girl.
Blogging has inspired me!
It all started with my milkcan a couple weeks ago and just flourished from there.
When Dan looked at it last night with all the candles lit, he just said "That's so
beautiful Wendy!" and I'm like "Are you sure? Do you think it's too much?
Do you think I should change something? Is it too gaudy?"
So, this is going to be a long posting....full of photos!
(I'd like to thank you in advance for your patience because this has been a
culmination of several weeks worth of crafting)
Welcome to My Front Porch
The themes in my porch are Burlap & Bling, Gold & Antique White.
Following are some of the elements for this shot.....
down the sides of the door frame.
"tutorials" for them....except the Letter Holder...that's pretty obvious!
Now for some more PORCH! Woohoo!
I'll try to do Day/Night, so you get the idea of both looks k?
It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!
It was already this colour!
How great is that?!
(You'll have to excuse my amateur camera work, but you get the idea right?)
This is looking in the other direction now...
I'll get to that preciousness soon!
Here's the View from the front of the long section of the porch...
through the Potting Bench from the other side!
As for that Terrarium in the Corner.....
It actually had plexiglass in it that had yellowed and my sweet husband
changed the windows in it for me, but I left the rust intact and I like it that way!
So old, in fact, we didn't bother painting it, because it's falling apart...all chipping off around the rim of it!
I just added a twig wreath, some of the same bling around the door, and
topped it with a pearly garland of battery operated lights.
The wee sparkly tree inside was a great find and it's sitting on top of one of Dan's
terrycloth shop cloths (the snow...you know?!)
Following is the RED Potting Table...I like it that colour all year.
It makes me happy!
These are some of the elements on the Potting Table....
A couple of other little touches.....
Two Final Joyous Shots!
(I crack myself up....)
