It's Christmas Time!!!!

I can't believe it is here! The most glorious time of the year. December is filled with faith, family, friends and decorations galore.  I must confess I have been at the decorating game for a few weeks now and will have lots to share in the next 20 days. Including our gender reveal party!!!!!  Since today is our first real snowy day I thought I would start outside in the entry.  I love having a festive front door for people to walk up to. It is inviting right from the start. 
I filled my pots with lots of spruce tops, birch sticks that my MIL gathered at the cabin, stick lights (I will try and get a night pic), and a bow to top it off. Very simple, but I love how the rustic birch sticks tie together with all of the silver pops.  Above the pots I hang 6 over sized ornaments. I use small command hooks that stay up all year round and because they are small and mostly white you don't even notice.  Now on to the cheery green front door! 
Last year I was on a hunt for a vintage pair of white skates for my front door. Once i found them I modge podged them and covered them with clear glitter.  It is hard to see in this pic, but the glitter just adds a little freshness to the skates. They are by no means perfect since they are vintage after all.
I buy a pre done swag at the local nursery and add the skates with a bow and there you have it!  I absolutely love how the skates look on the front door and enjoy how unique it is since it is not a wreath.  Ok, I will try and add a few night shots of the front once we finish outside lights for our party this coming weekend.  I also have two new projects that will be added to the entry that I will hopefully have finalized next week.  Hope you all take time this Christmas season to spend precious moments with friends and family and most importantly remember the reason for the season.  The wonderful birth of our savior Jesus Christ!!!
