HI THERE! Sorry I've been away so long. I don't know why, but it seems I've lost my passion for blogging. Hopefully it's just a phase! Do you ever feel like that? Well I decided to snap out of it and share a few pics of our outdoor decorations!
I had been hunting for a cheap pair of skis for awhile, and finally found some last winter at Goodwill, for $5! They were a funky color though, so over the summer I spraypainted them red and varnished them.
So come on over and join me for some skiing or ice skating!
And when you're done, grab a hot beverage from one of the many thermoses in the refreshment center!
I saw this hanging poinsettia basket in Martha Stewart Living, and fell in love with it. But I wasn't going to pay $38.50 for one.
I already had all of the "ingredients" to make my own: silk poinsettias, greenery, lights, and a metal hanging basket.
So easy to make!
It's hanging on the back porch....
And it's pretty at night too!
A pot of poinsettias by day.....
And a light-up decoration by night! I added red lights to these, and it's a nice red glow, not OMG The Poinsettias Are On Fire, like this shot is making them look!
My Tonka truck.
I love that sign from Home Goods, and it makes me wish that more stores sold vintage-inspired decorations.
Last but not least, my candy cane flag pole! I love that thing, and would you believe it was only $5 at The Covered Bridge Festival?!~~~~~Well that felt good to finally do a post! Next week I'll share some indoor decorations and some of my finds, which have been few and far between. How has the junking been for you? Vintage Christmas has been pretty nonexistent over in this neck of the woods, although last Sunday I think I bought almost every single blow mold I saw at one antique mall, because they were at garage sale prices. I'll show you next week!
