Decking the Door...

Brrrrr, it's snowing today in Colorado, but luckily I decorated the front door and entry a few days back when it was balmy out! A spirited chill is in the air today as the flurries fall, so what a perfect day to take a photo of the holiday decor outside. It certainly puts you in that holiday mood.... hot chocolate mood is more what I'm thinking. But, I must get busy in preparation for this weekend's Holiday Folk Art show and Open House!.....Back to work I go.....

* A funky old aluminum tree will greet guests this weekend, along with a very special wreath gifted to me..... See caption below!..


* What a surprise it was to receive this holiday wreath from a dear collector friend here in Denver! My friend Gay gave it to me for my B-day at the Trunk Show last September. It was such a thoughtful gesture to receive a handmade wreath displaying her collection of vintage glass baubles and kitschy-fun holiday novelties! I LOVE it!.....
