~christmas decorating on the porch 101 - the simple touch~

what do you love about christmas decorating?

trimming the tree and mantle...

the lights and sparkle...

i love all that, but my favorite of all is dressing my home with natural greenery

i love heading out with my boots and clippers, the air crisp with the promise of snow

and cutting all kinds of delicious smelling greenery




then i get to play around, filling planters




and old sap-style buckets (see my old thermos peeking there)



here's one of my porch projects this christmas

i have an old sleigh which i filled with a huge bouquet of greenery and holly




tied it up with a big burlap bow



love it's simplicity


i'll show you more in the next day or two...
