Christmas On The Porch

Welcome to my home for Christmas.

Living in the desert you won't find any snow or pretty pine trees, but I still like to create a cozy and inviting spot to snuggle in on the porch.

                                      The front door has a simple garland and wreath.

 I love the look of the wheat wreath I've had for fall, by adding a plaid bow it works for Christmas.

 The rockers got dressed with a comfy throw and a few pillows, ready to sit and sip a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy the end of the day.

                             A little tree for the plant stand lights up the area at night.

 A few packages in pretty papers and bows say Santa is on the way.  It's been raining so my rainboots are at the ready with a little red bow.

Come on by, I'd love to get you a cup of cocoa and visit.

See you on Friday for the Open House Home Tour.
