Doors of Welcome - Christmas

Today is Doors of Welcome at my dear friend Karen's. Please make sure you visit all the other lovely homes she has listed.

In past years Hubby and I have put out a lot of lighted animals and such...but this year in keeping things simple we just did the entry way with a few items. It really still looks quite lovely.

These were taken at maybe, opposite of Karen, I will try tomorrow to get some daylight pictures. This bistro table is in the little alcove in front of our home.

This is just a dollar tree wreath that I added red ribbon in....I had the little lantern.

These adorable pillow covers were from the 99cent everything store. I really think I need to go over and pick up a couple more for inside.

This is our front door. See the wreath. Ladies, I have tried so many years to get a new wreath. It is the same one on my Blog header. None of my friends will let me get a new wreath. They love the music ribbon and the violin that is in it...hard to see at night. I just keep babying it.... so here it still is. The door hook my hubby found at Target after Christmas sale....It says Merry Christmas.

One of my Snowmen that managed to talk me into letting him out. My daughter gave him to me last Christmas. He is sooo cute.

Now you can see the wreath and holder better!

I hope you enjoyed my simple decorations adorning our Door of Welcome. Knock on it anytime!

I'm praying for you tonight.

Oh CeeKay...
Everything looks so beautiful. I absolutely love that violin on the wreath. Out little Isabel plays the violin, she is 9 years old, and they have her playing with the 5 and 6th graders because she is so advanced. I would love to find a violin to put on a wreath. I keep looking. Let me know if you see any.

I love your little bistro table. It looks so festive. I also love the little snowman from your daughter. Just darling.

Thanks for sharing sweetie. Everything is just beautiful. I pray you are well. I pray for you every night sweetie.

Country hugs and so much love, Sherry

Ceekay- your entry looks so sweet and festive!! Here you have not been feeling well and you have your front done!! I am embarrassed to say mine is still needing attention- DH got the lights on the trees out front. Wanted to do the icicle lights but the wind kept knocking them down last year so he opted out on those! I still have to get bows and such on garland- I wonder if it will get done at this point!!

How are you feeling this week friend? Think and pray for you.

Your wreath and bistro set with the lantern are truly lovely.

A beautiful display! :)

Karen said...

My Dearest CeeKay - I LOVE your "simple" door. I think your home is decorated everywhere with love. The little snowman is too flippin' cute! And I agree, don't change the wreath.
Glad you felt up to joining in. Miss you! But I'll be over soon - CIndy was talking about maybe January!
Love and hugs! Karen

My prayers are with you, and I hope you are doing well.

So pretty and so welcoming. Love your snowman, and since you've put him outside, if he turns up missing, you'll know who came to get him! (You know I need some more Christmas decor!) I don't blame your friends. That wreath with the violin on it is so pretty. Your mosaic header is so pretty too. Have a wonderful Christmas. laurie
