Deck the Halls & Doors of Welcome

Today I am joining Susan @ Thoughts From Over The Rainbow for Deck The Halls and Karen @ Some Days Are Diamonds for Doors of Welcome. Please be sure to visit both of these wonderful ladies and see their beautiful pictures and a list of all the other participants.

We did the very minimal decorating this year, so I really don't have a lot to share. We decided to not put the huge sleigh and reindeer in the yard, but we did do a few wreaths, lights and the snowman.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I really look forward to visiting you all and seeing all of your beautiful decorations.


  1. Hi there!
    Love your porch! And all your snowmen! Everything is merry and bright! It all says Merry Christmas!
    Thanks for joining in!
    Hugs dear friend! Merry Christmas!
    Karen @ Some Days Are Diamonds

  2. Hi Marty! Oh, it's so beautiful! Your wreath is so pretty and I just have to say this - your front door is so clean! You must wash it down often! :) Love your little snowmen too. Looking at your lights at night are so pretty!
    Be a sweetie and you know I always appreciate your stopping by.
    Shelia ;)

  3. You did more than I did. I love those wreaths - especially the first one.

  4. Everything looks so pretty and festive. I still can't get into decorating. I think you need to take a stroll to middle Georgia to decorate! LOL
    Merry Christmas Marty.

  5. Marty how beautiful and welcoming! Love the pretty little red bow idea.

    Many Holiday blessings to you!
    ~Melissa :)

  6. Hi Marty! love your wreath! The lights are so pretty!!! God Bless! Lauralu :)

  7. Seems like so many of us are doing a more simpler Christmas this year. But your home is lovely...I really am thinking of adding a garland to my door....
    Merry Doors of Welcome!!

  8. What a lovely welcoming doorway...love the garlands and the lights...beautiful!
    Warmest hugs,
    Sandi @ Bearly Sane

  9. Your home looks very welcoming. Just lovely!

  10. Your porch is so welcoming! I didn't even get that far. Just indoors for me.

  11. Marty, your festive entrance reminds me of my sister's sooooo much! It looks GREAT! Her front is very similar...is that window a guest room? Her's is & that is where we sleep when we visit them in AZ.

    Thank you for your kind comments on my hubby's health. I posted a bit about him today as well as some belated cloche's that I had hoped to have up for your party. I was sorry to miss it! :(


  12. Hi Marty! Your porch looks beautiful. We are doing a much simpler Christmas this year too. Doesn't it seem like it came fast this year?? Your garland and wreaths are so pretty, and I love the snowmen. Is that a spongebob snowman? My niece would LOVE it! Hugs, Kat

  13. It's so beautiful, Marty!

    You inspire me to take a couple of outdoor photos. I haven't done that yet.

  14. Beautiful! I love the window and the wreath.

  15. So lovely, just love joining the party! Thanks for sharing.
    Merry Christmas!
    Hugz, Z

  16. Marty, what a wonderful Christmas welcome! Love the night time look with all of the lights turned on. laurie

  17. I love seeing the glow of the Christmas tree through the window. Merry Christmas!


  18. I love seeing the glow of the Christmas tree through the window. Merry Christmas!


  19. Marty, this definitely says "Welcome". Your wreaths and garland set the stage. We haven't done a thing outside. I think we are the only house without lights. LOL

  20. Oh my goodness Marty! Everything looks WONDERFUL! Love it....


  21. HI Marty!!!!
    I love the way it looks at night!!!! The front door dressed in all it's red bows is so cute!!!!1
    Love that!!!,

  22. So pretty Marty ! Christmas will be here in no time....my home is crowded with decorations :o)

  23. This is downsizing??!! Your front door and window look beautiful! I am going to start a campaign to have more time between Thanksgiving and Christmas :)Thanks for joining Deck the Halls!

  24. Hi Marty,
    everything looks so festive. The wreath is perfect with the red bows. It looks to me like you did way more than the "minimum" decorating! ;) Merry Christmas.

  25. Hi Marty...
    Sweetie everything looks so festive at your home. I love it. The grandkids would love the Spongebob. He is their "Hero". They have all loved him at one time or another.

    I love the night photo where I can see your tree through the window. So beautiful Marty. The garland around the door looks so festive. I truly love it.

    Thanks so much for sharing. I love it when you do.

    Thanks for stopping by. I always love your company.

    Country hugs sweetie and much love...Sherry

  26. It looks like a lot to me, Marty. I love that garland!
