holiday happiness day 11 ~ 12 days of christmas

christmas time in here...

as many of you know...i am joining my sister, meems @ hoe and shovel in posting from the garden or outside decor...the 12 days of christmas.

every year i change things up a's just in my nature to do that.

this year i used the bottom of the tree branches on the entry fence
with a snow and berry covered wreath....and a big red bow.

i have the christmas soliders at the front door guarding santa.

they always do a good job and are never distracted.
even when hopey, the cat is trying her darndest to.
some old gates are on the opposite sides of the front door
embellished with live fraser fir wreaths and a brown/gold velvet ribbon.

santa has been on the scene trying to get down the
chimney for days but we have a fire going constantly
seeing as we are in the 30's.

he is waiting patiently to deliver his packages...
behind him are two trees made of golden branches
with berries and leaves. one is placed in an antique urn.

did you notice the copper's filled with
santa's letters.
lastly here is a teaser for tomorrow...
the last day of 12 days of christmas.
our tree with just lights and ribbon.

happy december.

So lovely girl! I like trees with just lights and no ornaments. I was tempted to leave mine like that this year.

Your trees are beautiful. I love your front porch--so inviting. That little picket fence out front is to die for. Perfect.
