CHRISTMAS ON THE OUTSIDE...MERRY & BRIGHT

Happy Monday! Can you believe that next Monday will be Christmas Eve? Stop it, just slow it down right now! I have so much more festivity I want to share. Last Monday I brought you the Indoor Decor and today I bring you the fun outside cheer! Some of you may have seen my front porch photo on  Instagram a few weeks ago but I’m happy to share even more with you today. Next year my plan is to add lots and lots more lights outside including a couple lighted deer. 

The snowflakes are tied on with fishing line and are from Walmart, under $3 each!

This vintage looking truck is favorite find of mine. The mom of one of the boys classmates started a cute little shop and the minute I saw this at her Fall open house, I knew I had to have it! 







The tree is a 4ft lit from Michaels that I put in a tall summer planter. I took the legs off and put it into one of those styrofoam holder pieces. The buffalo plaid garland is from Kirklands and a favorite find! All the picks are from Jo-Ann fabrics.



This year we kept it simple with the topiary trees and Buffalo plaid goodness, and of course I had to have a wreath on all the windows. When one of our sons was home for Thanksgiving he got on the ladder and put up the top ones but with our steep roof he about bit it which made this mama a worried mess. But he handled it like a champ and I will probably need him to take those down before he heads back to college, LOL! 



The Pool shed even got some love.

I also had to show you a picture of my Merry & Bright T-shirt! It is from my wonderful friend at shop at bash and I just love the shade of red it is! I had the perfect earrings to go with and love wearing it around the house with my leggings or out and about with the cute flannel over It and some cozy Ugg boots of course!

And go be Merry and Bright too This week!!

  44. I think tonight is the first time I even noticed Christmas lights, guess I've been staying in early this month. I would love to see the deer decorations, we have so many real ones on my street I've been hoping to snap a photo of the real deer checking out the Christmas decorations.
    I love the red truck too. Those look like some comfy boots, Uggs?
