Christmas on the Porch

Sharing a bit of porch decor today...
Looking at the steps you might get the idea we are avid winter sport fans here. Hah! Not so much (ahem...not at all) but skis, sleds and ice skates make for great decorations!
The vintage cross country skis and red Flexible Flyer sled were thrift store finds (in the summer of course!). The ice skates came from a church rummage sale.


The shutters were yard sale and auction purchases. I made the stocking using vintage tablecloth and bedspread materials and that letter box is getting a major repurpose once the season is over!
I'll share more in another post. Thanks for stopping!

If it wasn't so darn cold out, I'd want to live on your porch! You even have a cute tablecloth out there!! Everything is so cute, and I'm not going to like my porch again until I can find some red skis for it too!
Happy REDnesday!

Hi,
Very pretty front porch. Love the sled and the ice skates. I have some skates that my mom wore in the 40's. I need to get them out on MY porch. :)
