Holiday Door

Our Front Door
festive and fun

~~ Welcomes you ~~

Daytime picture
Hmmm..... It looks so plain!
{I did not use ornaments this year...as last year the wind blew the ornies off and they shattered...I am looking for pink and white plastic ones to use that will not break}


Taken at night


I used pastel lights on the garland this year!

The sled belongs to hubby
{
as a child he remembers many trips up and down the hill with this treasure}

Our front door last Christmas
{night time}
{I used pink lights.....hmmmm I think I like the pink better}

Wreath close up!
Day time

What a beautiful welcome at your door, Dolly. It looks beautiful day and night. I heard one of my glass balls fall off one of the wreaths at my front door yesterday. It sounded like it bounced and didn't break. I forgot about it until reading your post. I better go check. LOL

Wow, that door is magical indeed, and the same to be said about your door last year. It's so inviting, I feel like Glenda from the Wizard of Oz, just might be on the other side wearing Dorothy's Christmas slipppers. So pretty!

Hi Dolly,

Just dropping by to see how my favorite cherry girl is doing. I'm totally digging those cherry ornaments. OMG!!! 2die4. I used to paint candy bowls with cherries on them and sell them on eBay. That was 10 years ago. We are still in style girlfriend.

xo Happy Holidays,

Cath
