Slowly but surely we are dragging decorations up from the dungeon. My sister gave me this little wreath last year. She found it at the dollar store. I cut some fresh greens from the woods and tucked them into this artificial wreath for the front door.This is a vintage childrens shovel that I decked out with greens and polka dot ribbon. Horrible picture...I know!! I'm thinkin my camera is on its last leg.

Normally I have this old junky sled on the front porch, but I thought I would try out a new spot this year.

The kids helped me load up on fresh pine and rose hips to tuck into the window boxes. I put lights on them this year to, so they look so pretty at night.

Here's a close up of the dollar store wreath. Pretty cute I think...especially for a buck!!

This is a cookie jar I picked up on clearance a few years ago.

The mantel is work in progress.

Here is my Hobby Lobby reindeer. He has taken much abuse over the years and can barely sit up straight. I had to lean him up against the bricks to keep him steady.

That's it for now folks. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We are recouping with a quiet Sunday at home today. It has been a crazy couple of months for us. Our house is up for sale and we have had an interested couple that just can't seem to make up their minds. It can be an emotional process, especially since we have found an old farm that we are crazy about!!

I suppose if it's meant to be it will happen.....
Have a great week everyone!
