Here's a quick view of what our friends and family see when they come to our front porch right now! I have a faux wreath on each shutter ... and a real one centered on the dining room windows ... that I bought from a Boy Scout ... Not just any Boy Scout ... my young friend, John, who works hard for his community.
My snow buddies, Billy and Bobby, have a little special meaning that I'll post about in January! Right now their job is to say "Welcome" in snowman language! Right after I set this up, we got a bit of snow in the Midwest!
If you ever think that all our decorating and tablescaping efforts are unimportant ... think again! Miss Phoebe is pictured here, spontaneously hosting a Christmas Tea Party with Pablo and Uniqua ... you might know the BackYardigan characters! I'm sure there is a Splenda packet someplace on the scene ... because she won't take a sip of tea without it! ... even pretend tea.
