Christmas Wreath and Front Door

Hope you all have been enjoying all the parties this week! It's been a lot of fun seeing all the fabulous decorations everyone has come up with.
I had a difficult time choosing what to do for my Christmas Wreath, so I used my Fall Wreath and added some burlap, greenery, a glittery star and of course, some burlap. I shopped the house for everything to create it.

 The weather was warm here today ~ 70 degrees....and this former Southern California girl is NOT complaining! 

I brought some poinsettias out for the photo because it was such a wonderful day. I used to fill the porch with them back in California and did the same the first Christmas we were in North Carolina. I found out the next morning after putting them outside that poinsettias do not like the cold! Lesson learned!


I might put up some lighted garlands a round the door and down our railing.





Hope you'll join me at the Blogger Block Party!

  9. Oh Pam! I just got caught up on your last 3 posts and think everything is so beautiful! What a great idea to repurpose your mossy fall wreath and dress it up for Christmas. Your mantel is gorgeous and all of your other decor too! :-) Thank you so much for sharing everything with us at the Blogger Block party~

  11. The combination of burlap, pinecones, and brown leaves looks so nice against your moss wreath. It's great that you could shop your house to find what you needed to make a pretty wreath.

    It's been warm here, too. I'm going to freeze when it gets cold by the weekend!

  14. Great job Pam! I like the burlap accent. I bought a roll and still haven't used it! Yep poinsettias don't like the cold. Lots of people up here buy them and leave them in the car only to find out later that the shock of the cold causes them to go downhill real fast!
