Christmas at My She Shed

Since this is my She Shed's first Christmas,   I wanted her to look extra special!

My She Shed used to be a little trailer that H and I took on trips in search of antiques.     We retired her a couple of years ago and this past summer she got a makeover ........and became a She Shed!      To add some curb appeal to the back doors,   I keep a curtain hung across them.      She got a new curtain for Christmas......

Everyday curtain.....................................................Christmas curtain

I hung Christmas swags across the two front windows..........

I'll give you a better look at the other window later.........

But for now,   here is a close up of the window on the left side of the door..

On the right side of the door,    I have a green wicker chair and a big Christmas tree.

At the front end of the trailer is a pink bench with a matching swag and country lady that I keep there year round.    I guess I should put her in some Christmas clothes!

I kept getting side tracked,   so you will notice that part of my photo's are taken early in day and part of them are just as the sun was going down.       It was 75 degrees in Eastern New Mexico today    so H and I spent the entire day putting out Christmas in the front yard.

I did manage to spend a little time today by the tree in a comfy wicker!

Here is a close up of the window on the right side of the door .......

I made a boxwood wreath for the front door..................

We have tons of boxwood around the yard so I made my wreath nice and full.

What was H doing while I made my wreath.......he put up the new lights that we bought for the front yard.

You may remember that I had chandy's on my posts for the last few years.    One of them didn't work at all....needed new wiring.     Only about half of the lights worked on the other one,  so it was time for a change.

Tomorrow I plan to work on the Christmas decor on the front back soon to share how it turned out!


  1. Wow, you go all out for Christmas! Can't wait to see the complete picture! Great job. It would be nice to be able to decorate like that but the weather here is not as nice. Rain and snow and in the 30's in the daytime...not too anxious to get outside in that.

  2. LOVE it, Penny. It is just so very sweet-The she-shed is wonderful! xo Diana

  3. Ohhh...the she shed is so fairy!!!!

  5. Wow! That couldn't be any cuter. You and your hubby must never sleep. :)

  6. Penny,
    Love it!! So cute and I adore your wreath!! We are supposed to have artic air move in at the end of the week with temps. barely reaching the 30's and snow showers....

  7. You are truly so talented. I love your eye for decorating. I think if I stayed at your home I would feel as if I was in a perfect little dollhouse.

  8. Agree with all the comments above. So fun! laura
