Winter Wonderland




Welcome to Statesboro, home of the 75 degree December days!

I really don't mind it though. I don't tolerate the cold very well at all. My cheery front porch has hopefully been making passersby feel rather Christmas-y over the last few weeks--it sure has been a joy to me to drive past in the evenings!

This year, I reused the garland I made for my deck last year, and hung it in the fern hooks on my porch. I love my glittery little trees from Target, which I finally got to stay with Ziploc bags of pennies tied to the bases {shhh...don't steal them!}. My best and newest addition though is Clarence. Clarence came to me by way of my most talented fiance, who not only cooks the yummiest foods, but also makes the coolest stuff out of cedar at his grandparents' house! He started out making wooden coasters for everyone, and now when I find cool wood things on Pinterest, I send them his way for ideas.

He took the wooden dear idea and made it work perfectly for my lack of storage living situation. The legs are screwed on hinges so they fold up underneath the body, and the antlers pop out of their holes so that it can all be stored safely and out of the way. Isn't he {Clarence, and of course Christopher} wonderful?!



P.S. This is my 100th blog post! How exciting is that? I love being able to look back on all the ups and downs of the last two years and see how far I've come.
