Ya know as much as I adore Pink and the very soft and gentle new colors of Christmas what it boils down to is I am truly a Traditional Christmasy kinda gal and in keeping in the spirit of the whole red and green theme I just wasn't able to find a single shade of Green Hair Color
so............I just did the next best thing and I kinda like being a fiery red head for a change. Punkin says it's kinda nice too!
And everyone knows how I do try to please my Punkin Darlin.
Now I will have to pony up now and admit I have still not made it out to the road to decorate our old mailbox but it is only
December 2 for goodness sake! Geez........
But I did get the most of it out of the way and we're not far from being lit up.
Punkin will tend to all the electrical matters and he promises we will be shining like a big dog come the weekend.
So let's open the door and head out front so you can see what's been happening around here in Dixie Gardens. Isn't this a cute lil guy. He hails from Big Lots.
I made this wreath a few years ago and all I did this year was hang a humongous red bow on the bottom and I think it dressed up pretty good and will make it nicely another year.
Okie dokie........what you see here is the front porch and I rather like the way it came out. A snazzy Winnie Pooh scruffy mat for folks to wipe those muddy shoes on and I decided not to put lights on the porch railings or even on the house because when we get lit up you will see why.
Hint: We have a picket fence that goes completely around the front and sides of our house and yeppers..........every square inch of it is decked in greenery and
the all american fave***icecicle lights. Whoopie whonkers it's gonna shine and twinkle!
And here is a little peek at the yard and looks like Santa's been here and just collapsed. Maybe it was from trying to climb out of that tiny sled.
He puffs up
really fine when we turn the lights on.
Ain't that funny.
Toby our little Boston Terrior barks like crazy when he sees him lying on the ground like that!
And my girlfriend, Sheila made this joyful yard decoration for us last year and it looks fantastic with the flood light shining on it at night.
Ok girls, this will be all for now but I promise to astound you with all the brilliance of electrical magic next Tuesday and after that we'll mosey on into the house so you can see more of what we do to make it look like Christmas at our house!
Peace and hugs, mizmollye
