Christmas Front Door 2011

Being in a condo now, I’m keeping my outdoor decorations quite simple.   For Fall, I had a two pumpkin topiary in a black urn by the front door and a basket of faux florals.

For Christmas and Winter, I have some faux greens in the urn and I hung a “baby” sled with a red bow and a faux Christmas pick, tucked in above that.   I got that sled for $2.00 at a yard sale over the Summer before we left New York!

I was going to paint the sled, but I’m liking it the way it is.

And a swag for my front door.  I like the way it looks against the cranberry colored door.

I love the use of the sled. I'm keeping my simple too, but yours with the sled is much more creative.

Kathy- I have a little sled like that, too. I just love it. Your front looks very nice. It is different moving into a condo, isn't it? We have been debating that move for a while. xo Diana

Love the sled and the color of the front door. We had hoped to be in a condo a couple years ago but our house didn't sell. May try again when the market is better.

Hi Kathy! Your front entrance really looks nice - so inviting. Glad you decided not to paint the sled. Looks great as is. Thanks for sharing!

Pamela said...

Kathy it is just lovely and NO don;t paint your sled!! I too love it just the way it is!

Polly @ Make Mine Beautiful said...

It's obviously been a while since I've caught up on everybody's meanderings - the last time I visited you was when you were just starting to look at condos in Ohio. I had no idea you had already moved and gotten settled in. I know how tiring that can be, so I hope you're holding up well.

I'm off to read through your posts to see how you got moved so fast while I was "napping."

Oh I love that little sled and the color of your door and the swag! Beautifully done!

I love your simple front door welcomes!!!

I don't know why I haven't thought of it but I have an old sled out in the storage buildin' that would look perfect on the deck at my own front door. Thanks for shankin' my cobwebs out sweetie!!! :o)

Have an incredibly blessed and beautiful day sweetie!!! :o)

BECKY said...

Love the greenery and the swag!! Looks fabulous on your door!! I am changing the flowers on my wreaths from red to gorgeous creamy magnolias! Can't wait to hang them on our front doors!! Maybe in the next day or so!

Hugs to you!

Teresa@oursoutherncountryhomeandfarm said...

Love your greens and sled! It just screams classy. I'm glad you didn't paint it.

Kathleen said...

It looks very pretty, Kathy. I love the green against the door. I have a sleigh that was my son's. Haven't climbed up to the garage loft to get it...maybe I won't! Enough is enough!
Here from the Porch and Door Party! I am not up to trees yet, but I have the Nativities up.

hi Kathy! Your entry looks so warm and inviting. I just love this time of year. Nothing better than walking up to someones door and feeling welcomed, I would for sure get that at your home.
