A Christmas Welcome

I spent the afternoon today hanging the garland around the front door and lighting the trees and wreath.
I am going to try to get a picture tonight with the candles in the lanterns lit.  They are the battery operated kind, but they look so real!
Welcome Home,
Penny

  25. Love your decorated porch. I bought the white pine roping like that and put it on my stairs today partially. I didn't get enough and had to go back. I am moving slow on the decorating, but am sure it will get done by the end of the week.

  26. Very inviting porch. I like the fake candles and I use them, but I must admit I prefer the real ones when I can use them because the light is warmer and brighter.
