Decorating the outside…

Over the weekend, I decorated the inside of the house (more of that to come) as it seems to evolve by the day.  I just can’t sit still, I keep rearranging! Today, I picked up some wreaths' and garland for the outside from Costco ~ every year I get a little more festive with the outside of my home!

Very festive, Tracie. And I love the sled! Been looking for a similar one for my rear entrance.

And I know it's not Christmas - but your front door is gorgeous!

Very pretty using natural elements. Having a real sled is nice, I only have a small crafted version at our front door but they add an old-fashioned look.

I would kill for that archway to decorate! I've always loved garlands, we have some outside every year. Yours looks great!

Love what you have done outside. I have my sled from when I was a child. I use it every year. Can't wait to be in the new house to come up with new ideas!!

Hello Tracie
I'm here from "Grey Dey" where I have posted too!
Your house and entrance is incredibly welcoming and pretty for Christmas with that beautifully decorated gate!
Enjoy your Christmas preparations inside too!

Hi Tracie, Your home looks so welcoming and festive. Flowers blooming? Oh my, no sign of life here. Buried under 6" of snow. I love the branches on the gate! Excited for your cottage party tomorrow. I may have to do my post in two. Wanted to share my redwork in the bedroom, but I am still not quite through painting my bed. Should finish it this weekend. I'll at least share my red transferware on the shelf with Christmas touches.
hugs,
Jann

The exterior of your house is so lovely, it doesn't even need the special Christmas decor. But, it is absolutely beautiful all dressed for Christmas.
