Holiday Door Decor

Welcome to the Holiday Door Decor blog hop hosted by Amber of Follow the Yellow Brick Home.

If you are following in order, then you arrived here from Belle Bleu Interiors.

Shannon's home is beautiful and she has such great style.

I usually focus on decorating this door, but it's not the original front door.

In 1928, the door (not a Dutch door at the time, we added that) opened onto the utility room from the alley.

The front entrance to the house faced a sidewalk that ran down to the beach - all the sidewalks were closed off in the '60's and the alleys became the only street entrance.

So I thought I would show you the real front door of the house today.

I love this door, from both the inside and the outside,

but I have never hung anything on the door at Christmas.

Most of my Christmas decor is old - I have had the wooden candy cane for about 25 years.

The chalkboard sign was in the attic and I chose the easiest words I could write.

There are actually two garlands on the old window and they are both at least 10 years old.

Once the porch and window were finished, it was time to style the bench.

I love my Maileg pixies and it would be fun to leave them on the bench,

but Steve sits on the bench nearly every afternoon and my poor pixies would end up on the ground.

I need to get back in the house and finish decorating, so I'm sending you off to Calypso in the Country.

Shelley's home is beautiful and I can't wait to see how she has decorated her door.
