The weather has been gorgeous the last few days here in Eastern New Mexico. Plenty of sunshine....temps in the 70's.....and just a lite breeze.
We decided to decorate the back porch for Christmas before it gets hectic next week.....lots to do the week of Thanksgiving.
I wish we had got the front porch decorated for Christmas too.....but the day got away from us and there wasn't enough time!
I was amazed at what a difference such a simple change made to the fireplace.....I love it!
In the past, you've seen the tree's on each side of the fireplace in the front yard. I've had them on the porch and also on each side of the she shed. This year they found a new home in the back yard.
I like to add live greens to my artificial tree's to make them look fuller, smell good, and have more of a "real tree look". I took some cuttings from the Juniper bush you can see on the other side of the fence.
Then it was time to decorate the tree's.
I like to keep the decorations very simple on my outside tree's..... a few big statement pieces is all you need.
I had bought a big black garbage bag full of metals balls over the summer at a yard sale.....they were just what I needed to decorate the tree's on the porch.
I have the mantel done.....the tree's.....the settee's and now I'll just add a few things to the rest of the porch and call it a day
I thought you might like to see how the porch was decorated last year......gosh I love the galvanized sheeting on the fireplace.
H & I are having supper on the back porch tonight......
Wish you could join us!
Thank you so much for stopping by.....come back soon!
