Outside Christmas Lights

Hi Everyone.

Sharing my outside lights with you today.

Here is the house lights on at dusk.  The house gets to blurry to take pics when it gets really dark.  That is when it looks so pretty but bad for picture taking.

Simple icicle lights and white lights on the trees and bushes.

Instead of a traditional wreath I decided to put up my angel wings on the front door.
I found this cute welcome mat at Kirklands.


This tree made of old spindles was gifted to me last year by a good friend.  I added lights to it this year for the front entry.

I decorated up a wreath for reach of the front windows and added some white lights too.




The outside of the house is complete for the holidays.  I am embracing this living smaller.  I can get things decorated so much faster so there is more time to really enjoy the holidays.  I will have the inside soon to show you.

Hope as we slide on down into the holidays you are enjoying decorating, shopping, wrapping and baking.

I have my annual Girlfriend Charity Party tonight so I am hoping to remember to take pictures to show.  Sometimes when you are the hostess you get busy and forget to take pics!!!!!
Hugs,
Kris

PS:
Before you go.  Do you see the little photo bomber.  I know this picture is very grainy but if you look closely you will see the little photo bomber Peggy.  I was trying to take some night time shots and apparently she felt like she needed to be watching and supervising!!!!

  3. Beautiful, Kris! I love your wing wreath. How pretty and unique is that? Oh my goodness! Aw Peggy! Isn't she just a joy to you? I love my farmhouse for the smaller space too. It's going to make life so much simpler. It's good to know others have done it and are liking it. This makes me want to put lights up on the farmhouse this weekend!

    1. Hi,
      I got that wonderful sign at Kirklands and it was pretty inexpensive to begin with and they had it on sale for 25 % off. So it was a steel. Hope you have a Kirkland store near you.
      Happy Friday.
      Kris

  18. Kris,
    Your decor is perfect! Love all of your special touches as usual. LOVE LOVE the angel wings on your door instead of a wreath, so ideal for you. I know that you have a "very special" angel that has been watching over you and your family and am sooooo happy you have landed and your world is blooming again as evidenced by your touches on your sweet new home.

    Merry Christmas!
