You asked for it!

A bit more of Christmas~

A few of my readers have asked for some outside pictures of my home at Christmas, so here goes. I decorate simply on the outside greens and ribbons with my white candle lights and a couple of spotlights with a lower watt spot light. I love the soft glow with out the bright white light, sigh.

                                                         Look at the moon over the house.

                                                       Most people enter through our porch.
                                           A bit of daytime~

                                      We have three onion lights along the drive and they each look like  this.  I need to put a little wreath around my crow's neck, one with a red bow.

These photos are all so gorgeous. I love the white doors and oodles of window panes! In my dreams, I have French doors everywhere to let in the light.

Donna, your home looks absolutely magical! You did such a wonderful job of capturing the night light which is so difficult to do. I know you're as surprised as we are not having any snow!! I'm sure it's just around the corner though.

I wish you a very Merry Christmas!!
