Christmas Entry


My post today is of my Christmas decor for the front entry into my home. 




I kept my front entry very simple this year.
I used by two old vintage french doors I had in the garden this summer to anchor my trees.  Used an old window to put my angel on the front door.




I love the serenity with this beautiful angel.

We have not had any snow to speak of yet so some of the fall is still remaining on the ground.  I am keeping some of the chippy vintage garden pieces out front for Christmas.
My chippy garden chair and old vintage watering can with greens.


I have my cherub birdbath that I am adding seed too each day for the birds this winter.

My old vintage sled that I had as a kid that I painted a few years ago and I added greens and my old skates.

Front Entry Way with lights on at night. 





It is so hard to get a good night shot with all the shadows from the lights.  You'll have to take my word that it looks pretty all light up.

Have a great start to the new week.
Happy decorating, shopping, wrapping and baking.
Enjoy!
Kris

  2. The front entry looks wonderful! I especially love how it looks lit up at night. And truly HOPE is what this season is all about.

  3. Love the way you used your old skates, and everything is beautiful when it's lit up. We have so much wind where I am that most things topple over on my porch in the winter time so I have to keep it simple. I hope to find an old vintage sled this year to anchor to the cabins wall. What's with this snow thing? I want snow for Christmas, dirty dead grass isn't pretty at all.

  9. You crack me up when you say you kept your entryway very simple this year, Kris! My entryway (front porch) is simple (as-in nothing!), but your entryway is enchantingly beautifully carefully decorated. I'm in love with that angel, the hope sign, and the angel wings and how everything looks at night all lit up. Enchanting!

  10. Kris, Your entry is wonderful. I love the angel and the two lighted trees. So sweet. The birdbath is cute there also. I adore the sled and ice skates. I am using some old black skates on my porch table with a wooly plaid scarf...no one would around their neck. LOL. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  11. Kris, I absolutely love your entry way. I love the serenity of the angel and the fact you have it hanging in a window frame. I love the word displayed above it. When you do have snow it is only going to add to the beauty of your decorations.

  12. It looks so pretty! I love all the white that you used. It flows nicely with your interior.

  13. It's all so beautiful Kris. I especially love the night shots. Your front entry will be a white wonderland very soon. It's near 60 here today. If I felt better I might do some yard work...or NOT. Have a great up coming week friend :-)

  14. That looks just gorgeous, Kris! I love it and that angel on the door is a beautiful touch. Hard to believe there is no snow with the way Fall treated us. I have an old sled with skates on it out front, too. That is just a darling display. How the heck did you anchor those French doors to keep the wind from blowing them over? Your little mini-fence with the chair and all is really a cute idea, too. Looks GREAT, Kris. xo Diana

  15. What a pretty display! The birds will really appreciate the seed you put out. I've always loved seeing sleds and ice skates in Christmas decor. Can't believe you haven't had snow yet. Maybe it'll be a mild winter? Wish we'd have a day or two of snow here, but that'll most likely never happen. As we speak, we're holding steady at 73 degrees. Not very winter like weather. :)

  22. I bet you are enjoying that fact that you haven't had much snow so far. I remember the days of trying to Christmas shop when the weather was so bad, putting chains on the car to get home and unloading everything while trying not to get frostbite!! Your front entry is so pretty, those door stands are really neat! And your angel is just beautiful! Enjoy the days ahead!! Blessings, Cindy

  35. Kris I adore what you did with the front of your home. The doors are such a great addition. So love the sled and skates. I've been searching for old skates for a long time but still haven't found any. Your home is so charming.
