The porch strikes again! Same spot, different season, and epic in every new version- like those Star Wars, Terminator, and Rocky movies that never seem to retire. Okay, maybe it’s not really that epic. But the Christmas version might as well be the final fight scene between Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker.
When we first moved into this house two Decembers ago, I was really stumped on how to make our porch cozy.
I found this burlap and berry wreath at Marshall’s the week before signing our contract with the realtor and knew I had to bring it home with me to christen it with our very first Christmas decoration.
And then I added a mini bunting and initial because I couldn’t leave well enough alone a.k.a. my life story.
And our DIY wooden shutters that Robert and I made this fall make our door look not so wimpy.
Back in November, when Michaels had all of their Christmas decor on sale at 50-60% off, I went a little nuts. I mean, I left and somehow all of this greenery just followed me out to my car. It was the craziest thing. But I didn’t have the heart to tell all of that pretty garland that it had to go back to the store to be adopted, so I gave it a home on our porch posts. Everyone’s happy now.
My favorite part is this little cutie though.
My brother and I had a blast on this sled when we were kids. I’m crossing my fingers and toes that we get a good snow here in the Carolinas this year. (Canadian and Northern friends, help a girl out and send some down here, will ya? As long as you promise to take it back with you after about two days.)
So now I guess we can stick a peppermint stick in it because our holiday decorating is officially done!
Tomorrow, I’ll be showing off our house along with a bunch of friends for a nighttime candlelight tour. (I’m super duper excited!) But for now, you can start out at my friend Rachel’s at Maison de Pax to see it from the beginning. Every single one is absolutely stunning!
And if you’re still in the Christmas-y mood, you can check out my full home tour over at Unskinny Boppy for the 4th Annual Holiday Home Tours! Yay!
Peace, love, and mistletoe, y’all! And may the Festivus be with you.
