Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

The boys pretty much steered the decorating outside this year. They wanted to do something fun. 
Come on down lollipop lane!
I am still growing our outdoor decor. I have visions of fuller garlands and large ornaments hanging down from the ceiling. The Nutcrackers guarding Santa's Wonderland actually come inside. We have been having issues with thieves following the UPS trucks and swiping left packages. Very disheartening. Thus I now have to keep them in for now.
I used my lil 4 ft pre lite trees in urns and placed them in our larger urns with a wreath at the base to fill in.
I just love our Nutcrackers that we purchased at CVS last year for just $20 a piece after Thanksgiving!
I purchased this cute vintage like thermometer out at the cottage last week.
Our wreath the past few years just had a burlap strip that I used to hang it up. It was worn and so I replaced it with  this pretty pre made bow and added a red ribbon to hang it from.
And if you just happen to pay us a visit at night you never know who you might find! Littliest came up with this idea all on his own after we decided that Rudolph might get swiped off the porch too. I think he may have his mama's decorating gene!;) 
Hope y'all are having a wonderful week! Don't forget about the Annie Sloan North American Tour Giveaway or Treasure Hunt Thursday all happening now!


Linking up to the following parties:

  2. First of all....I LOVE the brick on your house...I covet it actually. LOL! Truly though, friend, everything looks so perfectly Christmas-y and so fun too. :-) Love what you did with stacking the urns for extra height! Thank you so much for linking it up to the Doors and Porches party!

  4. It's a shame that you have to bring your nutrackers in, but it's better to bring them in than to lose them.

    And what kind of creep follows the UPS truck to steal Christmas presents? (I know, the world is full of 'em, but that's really LOW!)

  5. Love the lollipops, Pamela! Very fun! I remember those nutcrackers, too. That was a great buy. I did hear on the news about the package stealing. I'm sorry to hear that its been affecting your area. I don't know what is wrong with people sometimes. This is probably a good Neighborhood Watch issue.
