Holiday Cheer

Another in our series of alternative placements ...
Altho it's a simple green wreath, it is LARGE and at has tiny white lights for night time.  It's the location that was interesting to me ...

The "upper structure" of this deck is only in the front and is used for hanging baskets during the growing season, but makes a great place to support this wreath.  Interestingly, the house itself has no decoration at all.

Was pleased to have an email this morning from a reader of these silly posts.  She sent me a photo of her own wreath which is hung at the front ranch gate - think the Lazy Z in some old western flick.  It looks great, but she said it was just for me to enjoy.  Anyone else what to share for group consumption?

The bad news is that I have found enough new wreaths to go to daily posts for the rest of the month!

Holiday Cheer

Another alternative place for your wreath ...
if you happen to have a pair of fancy brick pillars leading up to your house.

Wish I could get close enough to clearly see the wreath on their front door.  It appears to be larger than this one and have lots of gold.  But, I like the simple elegance of these - it's a pair, of course.

Holiday Cheer

There's more to life than the house, and more to holiday decorating than the front door. 

How about your shed?
Another one sans bow.  Otherwise, a great idea!

I've threatened to do this with our little shed.  Think I might ... next year.

Holiday Season

This week's lessons will be on placement.  

I've mentioned that we put our wreath on the side of the house because our doors are steel (no nails!) and our storm doors don't work well (ok, they don't close - sort of defeats the purpose!) with wreath hangers.  In looking for pretty wreaths to share I have realized that other people hang their very effectively in "other" places, so this whole week we will explore some of those possibilities. 

I love the brightly colored balls on this one, but ...
even more, I like the way it is displayed.
Just wish it had a bow!
