Outside Christmas

Happy Saturday.  


Christmas is coming quickly.  



Here is JCC#4 Christmas decor outside.




I put fresh green garland on the picket fence and archway and gate.  I like to support the Boy Scouts and a little guy in our neighborhood sold me the beautiful garland.







I also added greens to the flower boxes with lights.






































My two bedroom condo with a yard and garage bigger than the house lol!  is now decorated on the outside for Christmas this year.

This time of year comes and goes so quickly.  I am trying to enjoy every minute.

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

  3. You always do things so tastefully, Kris. The touches you added to your house and yard are just gorgeous! Wish I could see it in real life. I bet it's even more beautiful than these pics can depict!

  4. It looks beautiful, Kris - especially all lit up at night! We didn't see any Boy Scouts around here selling garland, otherwise we would've bought it from them. We only put one long strand around our porch railing, but we got it from Home Depot and it already looks half-dead. So disappointed.

  9. Kris, you did a great job decorating the outside of your house. The fence looks so pretty and I especially like the Christmas tree on your front door. Hope you are enjoying the holiday season.

  11. Oh Kris!!! Gosh that's pretty!

    I wish our Scouts came around and sold fresh garland. Seems the only scouts that have ever come around here sold me popcorn. : - )

    I love your included an evening pic with it all fired up too - wow - it is stunning.

    My entire subdivision puts red lights on bottoms and white lights on top of all our trees - collectively it is really something......but that's the only outside lights we ever do. I have never lit up my outside - but your sweet cottage gives me inspiration to maybe do it one day. Maybe. Making no promises, haha. It gets so cold here and who wants to? (my eyes dart back and forth looking for volunteers, haha.)

    Hugs.

    Enjoy Advent - you are so right - it flies by and we will be in a new decade before you can say Merry Christmas!!!! Yikes!!!!

    You know what you are doing. A picket fence donned in fresh greens and white poinsiettas? YES MA'AM! Oh Kris, the cottage looks wonderful. I would love to do something similar, but it's so DARN COLD out there I just can't do it. Lovely, lovely, lovely!

  24. Be still my heart. Your home looks amazing. Question: we put lights along our picket fence and over the gate, but we have never done the gate. How do you manage that with the cords?
    Again . . . Beautiful!!!

  29. Beautiful and charming and festive and "cottagey"!!! That garland along the fence is so great.. I bet the boy scout was very happy that you had such a long fence! Hee Hee. Love your night pictures... is that snow I see on the walkway? We've had one snow here but may not get any by Christmas for which I'm very thankful! I'm sure we'll get our share afterwards. I bet you two are so proud of your sweet little cottage! xoxoo Marilyn
