Just as I remember from my younger days, when we partied hard from real door to door, blog hopping from one party to another is so much fun. And the best part is I get to do it in my jammies. (One year I actually did go to a New Year's Eve party in my best silky p.j.'s but that's another story :) Today I am joining At the Picket Fence for the Doors & Porches Day of the Holiday Block Party and Jennifer Rizzo at the Holiday House Walk Party. Our porch is where I love to incorporate the bright and happy reds and greens of the season. We are blessed to have acres of fresh holly, cedar and pine to pick. I hope you enjoy and maybe are struck with a tiny bit of inspiration from me to you today. xoxo from The Vintage Nest.
I just found this sweet old bottle brush wreath with the old mercury glass balls on it and silver foil leaves. I was going to make a wreath to put around the sweet concrete dove's neck but this works just fine. The Vintage Nest boutique found two of these charming old statuary birds and listed one in the boutique.
Bobby G. gave me this life sized iron bicycle one year for Christmas. I love decorating it for each season. If we don't have too rough a winter the pansies will show their sweet faces early Spring. The osage oranges (green orbs) are from a tree in the village out here.
Thanks to all the ladies hosting parties this week. Please thank them when you visit, as it's hard work. :)
