Back Door Christmas

Hey, look who's here out on the deck...
My little goosey has made herself a Christmas nest
out of some greens and a wheelbarrow.

I "shopped" the garage for some fun outside decor

A skinny tree in one of my vintage bushel apple baskets

an old red ladder and some ice skates.
( I didn't even remember these ice skates
 until I found them in a closet last week!!)
Note to self: organize and clean closets in January

Shhhhh....don't tell her, but she's just a plastic decoy...

She thinks she's mighty cute!

  3. Debra - Before we leave on our Christmas holiday, I wanted to jot you a quick note to wish you a Merry Christmas and to tell you how much I enjoy the inspiring photos and displays you share with us. Thank you for all your hard work....looking forward to seeing more in the New Year.

  4. I won't tell her but she is very cute. I love the display and that old ladders everyone is using for the holidays. I was at Olde Tyme Marketplace and she had an old sled for sale and I just knew it needed to be mine. Alas, not nice to buy myself gifts..haha
    Merry Christmas and here is to a wonderful 2012.

  5. She IS mighty cute, Debra! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas! Thanks for stopping by my Ideas House post! XO

  7. Merry Christmas Debra to you and your family. I have enjoyed reading your blog from the country Christmas. Your Christmas goose is so cute. I like the picture of the old truck with the reef. I grew up on a farm so I have wonderful memories of the country Christmas. Have a wonderful weekend. A Missouri Friend.

  16. Debra,
    Merry Christmas! Great vignette. She looks wonderful.

  17. Debra,
    Lovely vignette using your plastic decoy and your misplaced skates. I adore your note to self!Still looking for wooden candy canes I purchased TWO years ago! I've begun to organize tubs by color palette now instead of themes...and I'm going to card catalog each tub. I know...don't say it...but at my age, I don't have the time or the energy to look through all the tubs for 6 candy canes!!! Enjoy your Christmsa, dear one!!!
