Let’s move this party outside shall we? The weather is getting cold, we’ve had the first snowflakes, and it is a bit gloomy and dark out. So let’s get to decorating the outside of the house and brighten things up a bit shall we…
I have started with the front entrance. Come on closer and let’s look at this years Christmas wreath.
I couldn’t resist. I gave my twig wreath another makeover. I lost count how many makeovers she has had by now, but she is still going strong.
White, silver and gold with twigs, I am detecting a theme here…..
My twig wreath is not alone in her twiggy-ness on my door….
I ‘build’ a kind of pyramid, using branches from the same bush I used to make my stars and some of the white washed curly willow sticks I had leftover from my summer mantel.
Re-purposing people, that is what is all about for me this Christmas.
I really didn’t know if this project was going to work until the very last end. It didn’t exactly go smoothly, but I stuck it out and now I am quite happy with her.
And then I just continued decorating ….
Adding lots of green and some silver and gold balls to our white bench. This one actually was very easy.
But quite effective….
Of course it all looks best in the dark with all the twinkly lights. Good thing it gets dark so early.
