Christmas on the Potting Bench 2013

This afternoon I added some Christmas touches to the potting bench on
our back porch.  Although it is a balmy 70 something degrees, I am
pretending that it looks like it just might snow :-)

I kept everything in shades of white and green to go along with the
existing colors of white, green and pink of the porch.  

I am still not certain where all of the Christmas decorations are.  But that's
okay because I like to tweak my Christmas scenes from year to year.

Last year (see previous post) I used lots of tartan on the porch.  I think
that this year the tartan will head to the kitchen.  At least that is today's 
plan, but you never know what tomorrow might bring.

That's today's seasonal update.  More tomorrow.

Okay Bentley ~ let's head back out to the garage to 
find more Christmas decorations.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  6. Tartan in your kitchen sounds warm and cheery. I know it's sometimes difficult to think Christmas when it's so warm outside. It was nice to have a crisp Thanksgiving, and I was hopeful that the cooler temps would continue. Tomorrow it may be in the 80s. ;-(
    What ever the weather, I know you will have fun decorating this beautiful new-to-you home. Happy Holidays! ~ Sarah
