~christmas decorating with a red toolbox and rusty funnels??~

Like many of my blogging friends I am aspiring to a simple Christmas this year, and shopping my home first.

I especially like to keep things natural outside on the porch, and always cut tons of greenery and holly.

Rule #1
Always cut way more than you think you will need, especially holly!



So this year I pulled out this old bright red Husky toolbox, I picked it up for $2 at a garage sale in the summer, but as it had not yet been put into use I nabbed it for the porch.

Tucked in a great vintage funnel with red trim...





and filled it up with all different kinds of greenery




I like the pop of red on my front porch!




And here's another old funnel I filled up





Funnels are such an awesome shape for filling up and decorating with!

Here are a couple more shots on the front porch.


vintage sled and mailbox



and a few more pops of red



berries in white enamelware, those are snowshoes in the background



candle lantern and pinecones

hope you enjoyed my natural porch decorating, don't worry I saved some sparkly for inside!!
