Finally finished up the outside decorating today. It was a process this year that seemed to go on and on.
I took my usually plain garland that I hang on the picket fences and attached red and silver ornaments to them to spruce them up a little. The garland is getting kind of old and starting to fall apart and I thought it needed a bit of a makeover.
Next I added matching ornaments to the plain wreaths that I always hang on the windows.
Then I drug out my red wrought iron chairs and filled the urns beside the garage with fresh greens cut from the yard and more ornaments.
Then just today while the sun was actually shining at last, I added the white urn on the pedestal and a sled on the porch.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas from my house to yours.
