Well after nearly a week I have ALMOST finished decorating
both inside and outside for Christmas
this is my house from the street
now from the other side
This is my front door
The fruit arrangement over the door I made
I used to use real fruit
was not only costly but if
we had a mild winter the birds came to feast on it!
I bought wooden fruit, painted it and attached it to the board
It weighs over 100lbs
so its quite a feat getting it up over the door
especially if we have bad weather before we get it up there!!
he is over 4' tall
add some wrapped packages
He also has a small tree and doll in his sack
in the other hand he has a wreath and candle
he stands on a wooden base with Christmas trees
I usually add very large wrapped packages
and place on the steps around him
(on my to do list!!!!)
I made 2 of these Santa's as gifts one year!!!
on with the outside tour
a fence post crow I made
wreath high above the garage
breezeway porch door
A snowman sign I painted and some snow shoes
ahhhhhhhh.....no I didn't make those!!!! LOL!
I painted the snowman window you see
made the snowman family
of fence posts
I made a snowman to represent my husband, I and our 3 children!
They all have knit sweaters and hats!
These are about 20 years old!!!
I've also made several of these for gifts
over the years!
Hope you enjoyed my outdoor
When I finish the inside
I'll invite you in for some hot chocolate!
