I got the outside of the house done and thought I would share some of the pictures.  Unfortunately the outside pictures at night with the lights is hard to capture but it does look pretty.







My beautiful vintage angel that hangs on a chippy old door that I actually put on my front door.



An old vintage sled that I hung old skates with bling.


It is so easy to bling up the skates with a bottle brush tree and greenery and a dollar store ornament.

My old vintage white chippy garden chair with an old chippy angel plus my garden birdbath.

Lite up at night.

My garden bike with some bling and lights.

My old watering can with a tree in it and the bike basket in the front with burlap liner and a small christmas tree with lights.  Our weather here in Chicago has been pretty mild of late to get the lights on the house without freezing!!!!! So glad for the mild weather.

  7. You outdid yourself. What lucky neighbors you have who get to enjoy your decorations. If I were you, I'd want to stand around outside every night just to enjoy what I'd created. It's all just gorgeous, but I do especially love the front door with the chippy door hung on it, along with the angel and the lights!
