Progress On The Porch!

Do you love my wreath in my frame?
I do!
I was told the balls would fall off if I hung it outside so I triple glued them.
So far so good!
I put white poinsettias in the flower box and I love they way they look, too!
I still need something on the coffee table and the end table too so the cute penguin pillow can go on the love seat.  It's too cold to sit out there right now, though.  The last 3 mornings it's been near zero!

Today is my hubby's birthday.
We'll all go out to eat tonight and then come back here for cake and presents!
I love him so much and I thank the Lord for giving me such a wonderful man!

Merry Christmas!

Your porch is looking sweet.

I haven't done the porch yet. I was too busy and then this morning it was pouring down rain. Now it is windy so I don't think the lights will be put up or that the porch will get decorated.

Love your wreath, one of the prettiest ball wreaths I've seen!!! I stored mine in the attic the first year, many of the balls fell off. This year I kept it in my closet. Happy birthday to your hubs, have fun at dinner and cake/presents afterward. And stay warm! We're expecting ice tomorrow :(

It's so nice to meet you, I'm glad you came over to my site! I love your blog, I read through several of your posts. We like all the same things, that's for sure. Love all your Pyrex. Your ornament wreath is lovely, I'm hoping to make one soon if I ever get to the store to get a wreath form. I'd love for you to start joining my weekly We Call It Olde link party on Tuesdays, you'd fit in perfectly. Take care - Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

Yes, I love your wreath in the frame! I have been wanting to make one of those wreaths, but haven't yet. Your whole porch looks so cute. I love wicker!

Re your comment about thanking the Lord for your wonderful husband whom you love so much, I recently lost my beloved so please give yours a hug for me.

SUCH a pretty porch Holly, and that white tree is positively dreamy! I've wanted to make one of those wreaths for my porch, but I'll only use the shatterproof ornaments because I'd seriously cry if one of my vintage ones broke. Are those vintage ornies on yours?

Happy Belated Birthday To Mr. Cutie Pie!

Jann Olson said...

Just had to hop in and tell you that I am picking up ornaments when I find them. Been wanting to make one for a while. Hopefully I'll have one next year!
