Christmas front porch part 1


I was able to get most of my Christmas decorating done this past weekend.  I am still trying to decide how to do the family room.  I still have the rocking chair area on the front porch and the front door left to do.  Here is my little bench all done for Christmas.










Here is a close up of the old crates by the bench.



Close up of the bench.  I love the snowman hat.  I also have one on top of the tree.



I am hoping to get the rest of the house done before this weekend.  At the rate I am going I will be lucky to finish before the 25th.

  14. Hello Jody! You have such a beautiful front porch. I absolutely love your style and your warm and festive holiday decor. I myself hope one day I have a front porch to decorate as well. Right now, I make the best with just a window box. I do spruce it up with garlands and add sparkly lights for fun! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Dishing It & Digging It & congratulations on being featured this week!
