Although I love Christmas lights on the cottage, I also enjoy making
my front porch look festive for the holidays. I love coming home, walking
through the front gate and seeing a cheerful and welcoming display of
jolly, holly, fun.
Remember the movie Miracle on 34th Street when Santa leaves his cane
by the fireplace to let Maureen O'Hara and John Payne know that he did
indeed give Susie her Christmas wish of her very own house? Well that is
one of my favorite scenes, so I decorated a vintage walking stick in memory
of that scene. It's my little reminder that wishes do come true.
I always like to hang up Christmas stockings on the porch as well
as on the mantel inside! Never hurts to be prepared.
A wrapped present on the wicker rocker. Actually, there is nothing inside,
just an empty box ~ but it still looks festive.
Another little wicker rocker with some Christmas cheer. There is more to
do. I want to put a tree on the porch this year. Oh and David needs to hang
the snowflake lights and I need to add the candles in the windows. Come back
to see the results!

While I was decorating the front porch, the postman arrived. Bentley was
there to greet him. Bentley loves our postman and is always anxious to
greet him with a big kiss. It's really funny because Bentley raises a paw and
waves to him and gives him a big grin too when he walks through the gate.
