My Door of Welcome

Hello!  Welcome to my blog!  Today I am joining Karen's "Doors of Welcome" over at Some Days Are Diamonds


and Susan's "Deck the Halls" over at Thoughts from Over the Rainbow.


I have  a grapevine garland that I decorate through out the year.  This is above my doorway.   I carry the theme of reds and golds just like my Christmas tree decor.    I also have clear lights on the garland and it looks so pretty when it’s lit up! :)IMG_5223

I am always on the lookout for huge ornaments because they fill up the garland nicely.  IMG_5219

I have red poinsettias, gold stars, huge ornament balls, gold bells, and gold Christmas picks. IMG_5221  IMG_5225


I found these bells at Hobby Lobby this year.  The red, gold, and silver ornaments are from Lowe’s. IMG_5227  

And here is my entry way.  Aw, Skipper wanted to be in the photo as well. :)  I like to display our Christmas cards on that wall. IMG_5232

I hope you all enjoyed my photos.  It’s time to wrap more gifts. :)

Are you sure that isn't Harley in your picture? LOL! They look so much alike - it is amazing!
I love your garland! The large ornaments make it all stand out and just pop!
Speaking of wrapping . . . I MUST get started soon. SO many Doors to visit - not enough hours today!
Thanks for joining in!
Merry Christmas!

Hi, I come via Manuela's place and just wanted to see your blog. I love those huge ornaments. Your decorations look awesome. I have been a fan of Manuela's blog for almost two years now. Her post today was right on. Take care and Merry Christmas.

I have always liked red and gold together for Christmas. Your decorations are so pretty, including that one on the floor in front of the tree. :)

Hi Sandra,

That garland is so fabulous! I really love it and all those big ornaments! I usually put a garland with no ornaments around my door but I'm liking this look and if I find some big ornaments after Christmas I'll add them next year!

LOVE your big ornament garland Sandra! It's truly stunning! :)

Your garland is beautiful--I usually make the mistake of going too small with things, then they look "lost" when I take a step back. I need to learn to think BIG instead!
