Greens and Burlap

The front porch is very similar to last year's with a couple of small additions. I wanted my entry to represent the same theme inside.

 My little front porch watch dog gets decked out in a burlap bow.


 I added two rosemary plants and a bunch of scrunched up burlap to add some fresh greenery.

 I did have a much larger lantern out here, but Mr. Savvy broke some of the glass when he put up the garland so I just have this one now.

Same door swag as last year that I added brass bells to and a burlap ribbon. I wish I was good at tying bows, but I'm not. :(

This year I added a Christmas tree with the based wrapped in burlap, too. I still may go cut some of my neighbor's magnolia leaves (I have permission) and add them to the garland or maybe not.

Same large wreath I used last year on the large window.

I'm joining our third party hostess for A Homespun Christmas at On Sutton Place for
 doors and wreaths.

Hope y'all join us.

  6. It looks beautiful, Kim. Your ribbons/bows look fine to me. The trick is to twist the ribbon after you make your loop and before you form the next one. Here's a site I found that gives pretty good basic instructions for several kinds of bows. http://www.save-on-crafts.com/howtomakperb.html

    Hope you had a good day- xo Diana

  8. You have decked your halls ... or perhaps your porch and windows, and it looks fabulous. Love the dog, so sweet. Will Mr. Savvy fix your glass? Sometimes Mr. Redo takes a while, a loooong while to get around to things like that ;) Mary

  10. I'm getting ready to add a pop of burlap bows to my tree! Your's looks great. I wonder if we'll ever look back and wonder what in the world we were thinking to love the lowly burlap so much. I keep thinking my Grandmother would be shaking her head at this!

    Good job and very inspiring!

  12. Oh I love your little front porch doggy and that ribbon is just beautiful. Its so pretty and I just love the rosemary in the plant stand. I have two fresh rosemary trees I still have to plant in some pots. I am late getting my porch photographed even though it was one of the first areas I finished. ???

    Yours is very inspirational. xxoo

  14. Your porch is gorgeous Kim! I need to get some lanterns for our porch. I am always afraid something like that will get swiped though and then I would be mad.

  43. Just beautiful ! Espcially at night all twinkly ! Try turning your wreath or what ever you want the bow on upside down, and then tie your bow. When you right it back, the bow will fall nicely....
