I finally realized there would be no snow for Christmas this year and went ahead and took "snowless" outside photos for the first time in the five years we have lived here.
That's ok, I love the beautiful sunshine too:-)
Welcome to our country Christmas home all decked out in traditional red and green...on the outside anyway.
My mom has a friend who makes these beautiful wreathes up in Tennessee, so I used this one between the french doors. I added the tartan ribbon to the red bow she made.
Since I had faux wreathes for the french doors and all the other windows, I simply added different varieties of fresh greenery to each one so they all work well together. I love how they turned out.
I only added the greenery to the ones on the front porch because no one gets close enough to the others to notice.
Some of you have seen the inside on different posts, so I'll just highlight a few things:-)
All of my Hemlock trees came from the woods. I spotted this one last year and knew it would be perfect.
I couldn't love it more all decked out with vintage Shiny Brites, crocheted and hand cut paper snowflakes, vintage tinsel, icicles, popcorn and my great grandmother's glass beads.
Jewel Brite angels from my childhood:-)
Stockings I made from upholstery remnants for the children are ready for Santa to fill.
Of course, our home is always filled with music, and we are all enjoying the piano in its new spot.
Now on to the kitchen where there is always hot coffee, and sometimes a donut for my dad:-)
The bedroom is dressed in retro Christmas decor this year...
As you can see there is no snow in sight for the mountains.
We did get some beautiful and rare Rime ice this week...
This is just above our house...
Our creek...which was very cold and I had the tripod in the water to get the shot.
Home sweet home:-)
So that will have to do instead of snow for this year:-)
