Christmas 2012 ~ The Front Porch

Hey everyone…hope you all had a good (and relaxing) weekend! We’re having crazy warm weather again so I popped outside and brought a little Christmas cheer to my front porch.

The sitting area, at this time of year, is really just for show. I turn on the lamp at night and with the other white lights it’s very cozy from the curb.

Nothing is new. The pillows are from my Christmas line in my Etsy shop. 

These neutral little pillow covers go with anything. The homespun plaid I used for the bigger pillow covers is amazingly neutral, yet festive at the same time. Of all the fabric I have in my shop, this is one of my favorites.

This Santa is one of my most treasured Christmas pieces from many years ago.  I went through a phase where I bought anything depicting two children…one boy and one girl. My kids will have to fight over this one!

I’m doing pretty good at my neutral and natural Christmas theme…as well as using things I already have.

I sort of feel like Mary Poppins, in one of the nursery scenes, where she keeps pulling items out of her satchel. I just go to my garage, dig around in the bins, and come in with something old and wonderful.

Our Homespun Christmas Link Party continues this week with Anita at Cedar Hill Ranch. Her theme is anything handmade for the holidays. Her linky goes live on Thursday, December 6th at 8 pm EST.

On to decking the rest of my halls!

    Ann, Your porch is darling. Love your Christmas pillows and the homespun plaid. The little Christmas vignette with the lantern is so cute. .I know about having things from long ago..especially Santas.
