Well the weather outside is frightful. Literally.
My Gracie was 'sposed to take her drivers test today, but had to reschedule because the roads were so bad this morning. I braved the cold and snow while the boys
played outside worked on their schoolwork, finishing up my holiday decorating on the front porch.
Looking down one way.....
Looking down the t'other...
I wish I could find my old ice skates to stick somewhere. But I *did* find this old-falling-apart-tobogan behind some crap in the garage. Added some jute, plastic flowers and bling. Works for me.
I got these hypocrite greens from Hobby Blobby. I'd pick up a couple stems whenever they were 50% off starting back in the fall. Ornaments are from the Target Dollar Spot.
These greens are the real McCoy, cut from the bottom our live tree in the house.
The red ones are plastic imposters from Hob Blob.
But they play so nicely with everyone I gave them a front row seat. Just need to get one of those 'Merry Christmas' glitterfied signs from Wally's place to hang on the jute webbing....
Here's the back of the bench and rocker.
The planters are usually filled with whatever plant I'm currently killing in the summer.
Thankfully everything in them now is already dead.
See? Have you ever seen such pretty dead things?
Speaking of which....fake tree #1 with plastic balls tied on with twine...
Ditto #2. Picked up these bucketed trees at JoAnn's for $2.50 each.
Used another matching bucket I had and froufified it too....
So that's what I did today. Well, I also primed a couple pieces of furniture inside the house.....
...and I built a cake for my favorite sophomore...my friend's son who I homeschool:
I believe I am almost done with decorating for the holidays. Maybe.
How 'bout you? Done? Just starting? Skipping it altogether?
Hey! I popped back in to tell you Beth from The Stories of A to Z is hosting a Front Porch Linky! Go.
