Winter Porch Decor

One week ago last Sunday we received our 1st decent snowfall. Tim and I  took the opportunity to go out to gather our holiday greens. The beautiful woods, all draped in fresh fluffy snow was just what I needed to put me in the mood for Christmas decorating! Winter Porch décor designs began to whirl around in my mind.
Many of you know how much I lean towards the rustic design style. I guess this explains why I live in a log cabin in the woods on a great, big lake.
Back to the winter porch décor….I  love plaid and Christmas is a time that I enjoy both wearing it and using it in my holiday décor. So out came the plaid thermos. Next I remembered my old bait bucket. A little of this, then that and it didn’t take too long to throw together this years winter porch décor.
 
 Tim insisted on taking a photo of me attempting to cut the wee tree for the winter porch décor idea that was whirling around in my mind. You can’t imagine how many were rejected before I found just the right one! I’m way to picky.
I’m not sure if you remember that we are surrounded by woods so there is plenty of greenery to choose from.
In the end, it was my husband who ended up doing all of the cutting as usual! I’m so glad that he is so good natured about helping me with all of my creative ideas.
It was such a gorgeous day all around. I had finished my winter porch décor project. The beautiful snow covering the landscape, the bright sun shining on my beloved Lake Superior, and another project finished.We are blessed!

  4. Hi Kimberly, Love the photos of the new snow. We have only had one storm-about a month and a half ago but snow is predicted for tonight and tomorrow. I've enjoyed the mild weather but would love a little bit now. Have a joyous evening.Hugs, Noreen

  6. I love those decorations at the door! How cute! Is that minnow bucket, LOL? If we waiting for snow, then we'd be celebrating the holidays in January or February – or not at all! Gosh, it's been really warm here. Wore a t-shirt for most of the day. But I'm not complaining because the gas bill is low this year!
