Starting on the Front Porch

Hi Friends,

I hope you had a very nice Thanksgiving!

Today was a little bit of cleaning 

and taking down the Christmas boxes.

I try my best to stay home

 on Black Friday just to get caught up !

I didn't get much done,

it was a beautiful day and I wanted to be outside.

The weather was wonderful and warm.




I cleared the leaves and cobwebs from the front porch.

I put up the wreaths on the front door to start.

Then found my old ice skates I like to hang

on an old sled.


I wanted to give them the look of snow-

Yes, it's 80 degrees here....

I know it's never going to happen.

I had some fake snow and glitter on hand- I went for the 

fake snow.





I just ran a line of glue on the blade.


Then added the snow.






I liked the look!

If you love glitter you could 

add a design or snowflake on the heel.



I looped the skates over the top of the sled.



I put the sled up against the wall.

Then added a garland, pinecones and a bit of white paint.






That was a good start.



Tomorrow we are having company

and I wanted the porch to look festive.


My family says No Christmas before Thanksgiving !

It was hard to wait :)
