Plaid seems to have taken me over this season. I've placed and replaced every ribbon from years past with this delightful home spun plaid ribbon.
leaned against the house next to the Victorian mail box the last couple of years. A while back I found the skates on Etsy. I looked and looked until I could find a white pair in my size. Not that I plan on skating anytime soon, just one of my OCD moments.
Before the Shop's Open House I spent a Sunday afternoon cutting fresh greens for all of the outside urns. They flowed heavily over the edges. In the center I put the metal piece of Christmas art. When I purchased it I wasn't really sure where it would land, I think it's perfect to welcome guests reminding them to find Joy.
Grandin Road copy cat project.
copy cat Santa boots landed here at the base of the Victorian mail box.
I moved the small table over this year a tad closer, there isn't the worry of a lot of traffic coming and going and it feels a bit more welcoming to me. I used the same lantern and tree as last year, just changed out the ribbon to the gorgeous plaid ribbon adding a bit of whimsy with a few trailing berries and greens. Along with the pine cones in the bottom of the lantern I popped in a bit of red with left over ornaments.
We had a bit of snow the other morning, it was so pretty. It didn't last long but afforded me the opportunity to get a few shots of it laying gracefully on the out door decor.
