“A Thrill of Hope” — Christmas Porch 2013

I hope you are all enjoying the home tours as much as I am! If you didn’t see Gracie and Kylie’s tours today – you can find them and all of the others here

I thought I would show you a few photos of our front porch. I love how it turned out this year. I’m so glad I made the big chalkboard for my Fall porch. It was fun to do new chalk art for Christmas, and I think I’ll keep it up and update it with each season or event. Because why not. :) 

"A Thrill of Hope" - Christmas Porch’m kinda in love with this sparkly, vintage-inspired “Merry Christmas” sign. I attached it to a fresh fraser fir wreath. Lowes and Home Depot always have fresh wreaths on sale for $5 on Black Friday. I opted for a cedar garland this year. Cedar does whatever it wants, so I used to some floral wire to position it out of the way a bit.
