I’ll Have a Blue Christmas… Porch

December 2nd, 2012

I was in the mood for modern, simple, and unexpected this year.  I’m back to my old favorites using blue and green on the front porch instead of traditional red like last year’s poinsettia porch.  Here is our porch all decked out for the season in navy and white with some emerald green thrown in for fun.

I moved the outdoor rug and pillows from the rear balcony to the covered front porch where we could enjoy them for a few months more in a different spot.  Two white trees in urns and a preserved boxwood wreath on the door complete the scene.

Sunday Reading

December 2nd, 2012

It’s been pouring down rain the last few days in my town but that’s alright with me since it’s given me a great excuse to stay indoors and finish up all the Christmas decorating!  Some fun and festive scenes will be featured this week but first here are a few articles for your Sunday reading… the latest posts over at my Better Homes & Gardens blog, enjoy!

Also some other news (and just in time for the gift giving season) once a month I curate a shopping guide over at the new user friendly source for all things home: BH&G Shop.   Two of my guides have been posted, the first is dedicated to all things tabletop and the second has all the essentials for a cozy winter day spent indoors!   I hope you’ll find something you love.   Stay warm!
