The countdown to Christmas is on and we finally finished decorating the house!
I painted the little snowmen in the picture below the first year that Jason and I celebrated Christmas together. They remind me of some decorations my grandmother made and my mom displayed around our house when I was a kid.
I've also picked up a few topiary-like stars from a local garden center (Abide-A-While), added red ribbons, and hung them from our picture windows. I think it looks kind of cottagey.
I love the simple wreaths with red bows that are so traditional here in the South.
My favorite part of decorating our house is our fence. We live on a corner lot and the fence adjacent to the street is just waist high. I like adding ribbons and bunting to the posts for various holidays and for Christmas adding lighted garland.
These simple decorations make me happy.
We didn't do it this year, but I so love when people put little lit-in-white-lights Christmas trees on their porch. Might give that a try next year.
What are your favorite Christmas decorations?
