Over the Christmas weekend we in the Midwest experienced what a local weatherman described as a “significant liquid event with blizzard like conditions.” The “liquid event” started on our way home from Christmas Eve Mass with pelting ice showers mixed with snow. We were basically snowed in for the next three days because the roads were treacherous to drive on. Mr. PracticalPants did get me over to the farmhouse to check on everything. I was worried about the pipes freezing and walking into a “significant liquid event” of our own right inside the farmhouse. I was so relieved to find everything was ok. Even though I was unable to decorate the inside for Christmas because of all the painting etc. I still was determined to add some Christmas spirit to the outside of the farmhouse. Using fresh greens and a few of the red hurricanes I had left over from the Miss Frenchies Show, proved to be just what the farmhouse needed. The added benefit was the large amount of snow that had blown up onto the porch from the blizzard proving that nature knows best how to decorate!
Mr. PracticalPants hung my swing that I have had stored for the last 15 years just waiting for the perfect porch~ Weathered bentwood with old green paint mixed with a dusting of snow and greens.
Blizzard decorating can be fun~
