outdoor bounty

I love the look of birch with pine.

Actually, birch looks good with just about anything.

I'm getting things ready at home for a 3 day Christmas extravaganza. 3 days of eating and drinking, wrapping and un-wrapping, baking, reading, lounging with movies... and Family. Family. Family.

I am sooo excited.

For now back to my out front bounty...

I love the awning we put up a few years ago ....

like I mentioned in my earlier post, this is a fun extra room to vignette...

our snow is gone...
it is so weird that last year we had around 17 " by now.

I use my galvanized goods all year round.

just about everything gets stuffed with pine and cones

... and vignetted.  My husband was very confused with who was going to drink the beer... someone had to drink the beer that was poured.  And what about the cashews... whole cashews after all... they are not just put out for a photo shoot??? ... what the... who is drinking the beer.

isn't it funny how he thinks.

I hope you are all finding time to relax and enjoy the holidays.

Cheers ~ Lori

I love the table with the beer and nuts! I'm sure the squirrels will have a jolly good time and your neighbors will be raising their eyebrows, but who cares?! Everything looks lovely, just needs a light dusting of snow to complete the picture. Merry Christmas!

Love your outdoor vignette! My husband would stand-by for the beer and cashews--his view for not letting a good prop go stale. Have a Merry Christmas!

The outside of you home looks as lovely as the inside!

I like the idea of a 3 day Christmas celebration!

We are very warm here this year as well, kind of odd!

Merry Christmas!

Ha,...love your vignettes Lori!
It's strange around here with no snow, too.

Have a Merry Christmas

They say a dusting of snow is coming this morning... Just in time.

Enjoying my coffee and Christmas cookies this morning.

Layer it on. Change it up.

Time for a refresh. Have you ever looked at an area in your house and thought I am done looking at that mess.   Or maybe it's just time...
