Holiday Entryway

While I've had the inside of my home decorated for weeks, I sort of ran out of steam and hadn't done a single thing outside!

That is until this morning!

I made a simple display for my patio furniture sitting outside still.

A rusty old bucket filled with greenery and a lantern adds a little something festive to the space.  I'm hoping it will stay looking nice til spring.

Another bucket filled with split logs sits right outside the front door.

The corner on the other side of the front door needed something too! 

First I added this vintage sled I picked up at the flea market this past summer.
Love the unique design of this sledge and the colors are so pretty.

I then added another bucket filled with fresh tree clippings - - although the clipping are sort of slumping and you can't see the bucket anymore, I promise it's there.

And finally I added a small snowman blow mold just to make me smile.
Doesn't he look cheerful!

The whole thing took so little time at all I can't believe I put it off for so long.

How about you?  
Is your entryway dressed up for the Holidays or are you procrastinating like I've been doing?


  1. Your entry is so pretty! I love the bucket of logs for the fire, reminds of warm nights drinking cocoa and watching Christmas movies. Thank you for sharing! xxDazee

  2. Very pretty! I am wishing I dragged my sled out of the attic now! Love the light up snowman!

  3. The colors in that sled are awesome! I have not seen a sled like that before. Great find. I didn't do much outside at our house this year, but I did have fun helping my son and daughter in law at their house. Had fun featuring them on my blog today. Some of your elements, like the bucket of logs would have been perfect for their alcove...

  10. Your front porch is wonderful. I just shared mine on a blog post this morning. Ours could be twins. ( Except Tennessee has no snow and rarely gets any.) The snow would be the icing on the cake. :)
