Vintage on the Porch...

 This past weekend I did a little winter decorating on the front porch!  It's really just a front step, but there is enough space for a small set-up.  It's been cold early this year, 
so we are keeping it simple.  
Instead of lots of lights on the house,  
just a string of lights around the door 
and a little lit snowy tree will do...

A burlap coffee bag serves 
as a rustic tree skirt...

Being in a north woods frame of mind this year, I continued that style out here...starting with my old, chippy picket fence section,
am old felted wool scarf,
and a sweet little pair of vintage skis...

I added my favorite old skates...

The black and white laces have faded to gray over the years...

A couple of great vintage jugs 
with a primitive little tree, 
fill an old, worn ammunition box...

I added one of my favorite signs~ 
I painted it years ago 
and still love it...

In the other corner of the porch, 
another primitive tree 
has a big vintage funnel as a stand...

The porch looks so pretty and welcoming, 
lit up at night...

Thank you for all of the good wishes and kind comments on my anniversary made the day even more special!

Until next time...
