Happy Weekend to you!
Hard to believe Christmas will be here in just 9 days! I’ve had the porch decorated for a while now, but just haven’t gotten around to sharing photos of how it turned out this year.
Probably the biggest change for this year are the benches I added to the porch this past summer.
I never realized how much I would enjoy having them here. They are the perfect spot to sit and open the day’s mail, or a nice place to rest with a glass of iced tea in between my gardening chores.
I didn’t bother to blow off the leaves because I love how they look scattered across the porch.
I kept things pretty simple this year, no lit topiary trees on the porch, just a few of my faves like the old sled and a couple of new lanterns I found this season.
I left the wreath as I found it, choosing to not add any embellishments this year. It smells wonderful each time I open the door to go in and or come out.
The other side of the porch is ready for a bit of relaxing and snuggling under a warm woolly blanket.
Hot chocolate is definitely a comfort in the cold weather we’ve been having.
I love these cute tumblers from Starbucks this year. They put them on sale half-price a week or so ago and I purchased one for myself and another as a gift for a friend who likes their drinks. The adorable reindeer cozy came from here: Reindeer Cozy.
Speaking of cozy, Hunter has a lot of their boots and clothing on sale right now, 40% off. I purchased two pairs of boots to give as gifts. My daughter-in-law purchased the Azure blue boots, a gorgeous cobalt blue. It’s an awesome sale and something you don’t see very often. You’ll find the sale here: Hunter Boots 40% Off Sale
Merry Christmas to you, dear Friends!
So appreciate your visits and kind words this past year. YOU are the very best part of blogging, so thanks for being here and reading. I’m so looking forward to 2017! ♥♥♥ Have a wonderful weekend!
