Winter Front Porch

December 10, 2010

My front porch is finally dressed for winter.  It snowed early in Minnesota this year, so I went for sweet and simple.  Cuz baby, it’s cold outside!

We ordered a wreath from a friends son.  This is the best Boy Scout wreath I have ever seen.  Too beautiful not to use (excuse the glare, it gets dark early in MN in the winter).  It goes well with the Noel sign I made, don’t you think?  You can see how I made the sign here.

A few ornaments adorn my lighted garland, which the wonderful men in my family put up this year.  With the temperature in the teens, I gave a few suggestions, and then got out of the way.  Inside, where it’s warm.  They did a great job.  I did brave the cold to wire on all the baubles.

My fingers are still thawing out.

An old grapevine wreath is made new with fresh ribbon and some glittery snowflakes.

A simple holiday wish, a few pine cones, and a cute little tree adorn the little table.

All in all, a very cheerful winter porch.

 

Which you can kind of tell, even though it’s dark.  It took almost the entire day to get all the lights working.  But I’m glad I kept at it, because nothing beats the sparkle of twinkling lights, especially on a cold winter’s night.

I’m joining Beth’s Christmas Front Porch Party.
