here are a few more random photos of decorating my front porch, i like to keep it simple and fresh
this is the chair outside my front door - i'm a little bit
lazy pressed for time, so it's the same chair (garage sale)
and coffee sack (gift)
and basket (thrift store)
and gorgeous white pitcher (gift) i had out in the summer
but dressed up with white bells and pine clippings it looks quite festive
you can't see too well here but these clippings have wonderful pine cones on them and i like the variation in color
here i tucked a vintage red plaid thermos on the bench next to a sap bucket of cuttings (i see it got a little faded by the summer sun)
you might remember my vintage summer picnic here
and further down the bench these skates (thrift store) and snow shoes (gift from my dad)
see the theme ~ snow shoes ~ skates ~ thermos of hot chocolate~
yes, i know you got it right away!!
should i fill the skates with holly do you think, they're a little plain?
