Christmas Eve


Merry  Christmas to ALL

There will be many footsteps up and down
these steps Christmas  Day. 
It will be too cold 
for porch sitting, but a special gathering 
will be
around the fireplace and table.

So looking forward to family time again this Christmas  Day. 

Glad you stopped by as I share my Christmas porch.

Happy holidays.


















The trees are perfect for the
outdoor
this year.  I usually display indoor.













My ribbon is an old sweater I ripped.
the arm sleeves made a perfect
candle ring for the tall candlesticks.




Do you remember  these lanterns
I purchased over the  summer? 




Wishing you and your family LOVE, JOY and HAPPINESS.

All Spruced Up



There is absolutely nothing to not love about Christ's birth.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called 
Wonderful,
Counsellor, 
The mighty God, 
The everlasting Father, 
The Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6






























The season is all about Christ. 
Its a time we as a family and friends come together to remember Christ's birth and the good things we have. 

We may have different ways we celebrate Christmas,  but the vibes in giving is worth the thrill.

Until 2018
Merry Christmas

Christmas Around the Fireplace


Every Christmas, I get the same thrill when I glimpse an ornament and/or a string of lights.

Merry Christmas everybody!
From my home to your home,
may your holiday be filled with
love
joy
peace
and
happiness.

All is black, bright, white and merry.....

When it comes to holiday decorations, I say bring on the ornaments. 

Coffee time, so join me as I share lots of pictures of my Christmas Fireplace all decked out. 
 Be sure to check out how these books add a punch.

 I love the white swags.

For the mantel, I hung two white swags  with draped berries.

At each end, I placed clusters of ornaments.  I don't like anything matchy matchy, so the corners vary in color and size.

 
The brush Christmas trees are Targets dollar spot  finds.

I search thrifty stores for unique ornaments.
  For some reason, I broke sooo many glass ornaments. 

Ornaments are the perfect accessories and
look great
 on
Christmas trees,
and
 clusters on the mantel.






Lanterns complete the d├ęcor around a fireplace.


So obsessed with my sign

 









As you unwrap your gifts,
let the giver know you love them as much as the gift.

Until the next time.
Merry Christmas

It's time to enjoy autumn!



Instead of pumpkins galore
or
mums galore,

I decided on

FERNS galore

for an inviting entrance.

The green ferns look awesome with the black rockers.

I didn't  think I would find ferns this time of the year, but I did.

I swapped out all orange hues for plum and floral pillows

  Now they both have a seasonal look against the rockers too.

Pillows can do wonders.  I just borrowed them from the inside. 

I can't count the times I stood back to edit.

When

I got the green light to proceed with my ferns , I began snipping away the brown leaves and stagging the height of each pot for an elegant presence.

I began to show off my personality and style.

It was just as much fun preparing  my autumn porch as it is sharing.

I am so pleased with the look, 

  an autumn porch you will never want to leave.






Could this be more inviting
.












!




Thanks for stopping by.
Until the next time.
