Christmas On The Front Porch
We have a large screened-in front porch that is only used in the summer. We always come in through the back door. Even the UPS guy and the repairmen know to go around back. But the space is too lovely not to decorate for Christmas.

If the weather were a little nicer, I would sit out there all day.

I think there's a balance somewhere between drowning in sunshine and starving for light…

The Walmart olive basket really is a great substitute, but it did not have the same “aged appeal” as authentic ones. Not to worry… I have more »
