Christmas Outside

Here is the outside of my house this Christmas.  I didn't go all out this year but the family loves it.
Holly, burlap garland, pine cones, twigs, and feathers were used this year.

The front porch:

OOOPS...forgot to move the cords. Sorry for the 'no soliciting' sign, but we have to keep it up so salespeople will stay away. OF course it doesn't seem to help with some. Needless to say I have gotten rather rude with a few!

and closer......

and finally a closer look at my wreath!

Over the garage:

You have to excuse the angle of this picture but it was the only way to get a full shot without the vehicles being in the picture.
