Thank you all for your get well wishes...they really brought a smile to my face...I am glad to be feeling much better now! The weather has turned cold here, so I decided to start setting out greens in the front porch planter, before it is too cold and frozen to do so! I am in a simple Northwoods frame of mind this year...and just used green, black, and white colors. Our house is green and the front doors are black and white, so it is a natural looking entry!
Recently, I found these great outdoor custom vinyl numbers from santasgiftshoppe on etsy...under $10, including shipping! I think they really dress up the door!
An old Rock Spring Beverages crate works well, with its chippy green paint...
It holds some snowshoes and a sign I made several years ago...
I love to decorate with vintage skates, and I love the laces on these...
I mixed greens, many of which I found at the compost site down at the lake. Its fun to re-use the fresh clippings that others discard...I re-cut and soaked them in water, to make them last longer. I also mixed in a few that I bought and added some roping around the front door.
I think its a great look for winter! Tomorrow we are going to add some white lights and more greens to the front of the house. We'll take advantage of the weather, as it will warm up tomorrow~ to 47 degrees~ but Saturday, snow is expected! We want to finish before the snow flies!
And, on another note...thank you to all who entered the My Memories giveaway! For those of you wanting to purchase this fun software program, I will leave the $10 discount code on my sidebar. The winner is~
