Christmas spirit

There are 12 days until Christmas.......I am moving at the speed of light here...the front porch is done.  Since you saw the other front porch I did with birch logs.....then you know I grabbed a few for myself :)

Here is my wreath.  It's not earth shattering....but it proves to my neighbors that I do believe....:)

I just took a plain wreath and added a few branches from my backyard, along with some eucalyptus and tied it with white burlap ribbon.  Whew knew I was so creative.  Just kidding......this looks like a project for 6th graders after all of the wonderful decor I have seen in blogland.

Then I took the birch logs and stuck them in my planter....

So dang easy....moss, glitter pinecones, burlap and twine.
Shoot I could take the pinecones away and leave this up forever....no watering!!!!!!

While we are at it here is an old cement lamb that I got about 15 years ago at Scott's.  I love how the moss has found him.


Sometimes my one dog [he was dropped at birth I swear] will notice this guy, freak out and not want to go past him.  Wish I could get it on film because it is quite funny.

A few more answers to questions about the benches.  I got the upholstery webbing here.  I just measured what was there and ordered a little extra.  You know" measure twice....cut once"  HA!
Then I just folded the ends under and stapled.

Oh yeah.  Here is the info about the carpet in my design plan.  The sample came from Myers Carpet here in Atlanta.  You can give them a call and shoot them a picture because I am not positive of the name.


And......I was looking through some blogs the other day when I should have been doing something productive  and found this crafty little number......


Are these not the cutest dang things ever??????  Cami from the blog tidbits made them and she is quite the talent!  You need to go over and take a look at all of the other things she has done!  I love how she did the pictures.

Allrighty then.....that is all for the day.  Off to pick out floor stain color.

I love your wreath on the front door! I like the eucalyptus you added too. Thanks for the order info for the black jute webbing. I've been looking for some and can usually only find the red (which I have plenty of). I just ordered some black. Yay! That blog you featured looks cute. I'm going to go check it out.

So beautiful. I love that I can recognize your style from a mile away. So classy and beautiful. That urn on the porch with the birch and pinecones is fabulous!

Can you make me one of those wreaths? Mine sucks next to yours. Come see my holiday decor and tell me what I need to change!! You know I love me a designer's opinion. I'll do whatever you say, I swear! xoxo shel

Ahhhhh!!! That wreath and your logs are stunning! As in rip them off your door and porch and bring them over to my house ASAP :D

Acquired Objects said...

You did good with your wreath and front planter at least it looks like Christmas now at your house. Our wreaths on the front of our house and barn have a simple bow, that's it nothing creative there so you beat me hands down.

Lili said...

i love your front door area~!

Cami said...

Hey, thanks a bunch for posting about me. I'm flattered! I love your simply beautiful wreath too. I haven't gotten to the outdoors (probably won't) and I'm sure my neighbors are wondering about my Christmas spirit too!

I do love your style. I think I said that already.

I think your wreath is beautiful Sherry. It's effortless and I love how it cascades. You're good.

Simple is beautiful! Understated elegance is so my cup of tee. (And birch tree goes hand in hand with a Swedish soul!).

Sherry....your wreath is PERFECT!! I love it, so elegant and understated, just how I like mine. All your decor including the beautiful logs is wonderful......you are way ahead of me with the decorating...my tree is just arriving tomorrow, better late than never, right!

You look so festive over here...love the wreath!!

A Vintage Vine said...

That is NO 6th grade project, girly!!! You did a wonderful job on the wreath and planters..I wish you could get the "dog freakout" on video....Blogland would be a buzz'in about that one! HAHA!

I covet that lamb. I found a great OLD cement ram with awesome horns in a yard of house in town. I'm gonna ask my husband to steal it, er, buy it from those folks for me for christmas. donna

Taylor Greenwalt said...

I love your wreath. The eucalyptus leaves are a nice touch and the little lamb is adorable. I just got done decorating my house and my tree. Boy its a lot of work! I just posted it on my blog...

allumer * decor said...

So chic! I really love what you did. It looks simple and almost modern with a beautiful richness...(does that make sense?) Maybe it's all the textures you used from the birch wood to the eucalyptus to the white burlap... anyway, it looks fabulous!! *** love that little lamb too!

Love your entry!! Birch logs are my fave and I used to have a planter just filled with tall birch logs that I trudged around the forest for next to my door. Perfect all year, especially for a spot that gets no sun from the overhang.

Sherika, I think that wreath is fabulous! I am all about the simple beauty this year....go figure! Love the bow! And I am now on the hunt for birch logs...you may have started an epidemic!

Have a GREAT Christmas!! Hopefully we can meet up at Scotts at some point in the New Year :)

That is no grade school project wreath! It is simple. gorgeous. sophisticated. Totally lovely, everything. Question on the houndstooth fabric in the fabric show -- is that Duralee (it looks less white than Duralee's). If you have a minute (ha! I know) could you let me know sometime who it is? Looking for that exact color and scale. Thanks and have a great weekend!!

Brandi said...

You have amazing taste Ms. Sherika! ; )
Your wreath is perfect! I love the logs too!

Very Beautiful! Would you mind telling the name of that blue kravet floral! I love it!
