There is something so cozy and comforting about a rustic Christmas vignette, especially to greet you on the front porch.  Mine has some funky junk involved, and a pretty funny backstory.

When we moved to the Homestead in 2011, I was bound and determined to have a sled on my front porch at Christmas.  Hubby and I hit the antique stores and I found one at a good price.  I still need to pick up a pair of old skates.  In the meantime, I tied a bow with some holly themed burlap ribbon (holly… get it… snicker… snicker…) and added a um… no clue what those things are called… the decorative thingies you use to make wreaths.  Yeah, that’s it.

We picked up the galvanized steel bucket at an antique store on the way home from Snowsgiving with the family (awesome pics posted on Facebook BTW – we got about a foot of snow in the Hudson Valley).  It was pretty rusted, but cheap.  Hubby had an extra burlap sack that I tied with the same holly themed burlap ribbon and ornament thingy.

Ok, so the story.  Hubby and Stepson are working on the property one weekend morning.  I am inside and can hear the lawn mower and leaf blower and chain saw and they are working like rock stars.  Hubby cut down some branches that were a little too close to the power lines.  Stepson gathered them up and put them in a wheelbarrow and…. taking… them… away…. WWWWWAAAAAAIIIIIIITTTTT!!!!!  I go running outside at full speed and grabbed as many as I could while the boys stared at me and laughed.  They are used to all of the craziness involved in being family members of a mommy blogger.  But this was a new one for them.

I debated about adding lights to the vignette, but I think it’s fine the way it is.  Doesn’t it make you want to come inside and curl up by the fire?
