Back porch tree trimming
It all started with the old galvanized water cooler can I found in the shed. Then I saw a forlorn little tree at Manfull Orchards. Too small for a family O Tannenbaum but ideal for my back porch!
This little back porch evergreen is the perfect tree to say “C’mon in.” And it’s a direct nod to my other Christmas decor like the rustic-glam table setting and the mantel and Christmas tree, here and here. Because the porch is the place to kick off boots … I hung spurs. No one in this house uses spurs, but we have a pile of them scavenged from a flea market in Tennessee. They make lovely tree ornaments! Add a couple of rusty jingle bells and wa-lah, a cowboy Christmas tree. Howdy, pardner!
Unless of course you want to get crazy with your headdress and replace a simple star with pheasant feathers and deer antlers and whatever else you can find. I’d even bet the little hands around here take a notion to gathering a few chicken feathers and sticking them here and there. (It’s been known to happen!)
I think I’m done decorating. Every other day I come up with something else. I LOVE IT. It’s just not going to be fun to undo all of my do-ideas come January. Hopefully by then we’ll be able to use that sled. Enough of the blindingly bright sunshine. I want snow … more snow than the seven flakes that fell a couple of days ago. So I say, with great passion …
Let it snow, let it snow, LET. IT. SNOW. Please?!
