It's Winter Time

The doors are open and the sunshine is streaming through the windows. 
I put a long sleeved turtle neck shirt on this morning, which I will have to change before I go out to the local orange market to see if this years navels are for sale.(The locally grown oranges have the sweetest flavor!)
Tonight will be a different story, away goes the sun and the cold air sets in and it becomes cold!
So I gratefully turn the heat on and smile and feel confident that another beautiful day will be on it's way tomorrow! 
Happy Pink Saturday, this week is Pink Holiday Porches. I really don't have a porch, but if I did what would I like? And how festive would I want to be? So I looked for some picture and what I thought I might like.
I picked this one out first, as the decoration is so clever. Who wouldn't want these beautiful big boxes with gorgeous bows on top of them, sparkling into the night?

 Then I thought I would like a little sitting area on my porch so when the early afternoon was flooding the porch, I could sit and have a cup of coffee or tea among friends. Therefore I would have to have a little decoration on the occasional table.  I think this tree with it's shiny baubles would be the perfect centerpiece for such an area.

 Of course I would love a little something that would make a big impression, so I would have a fun tree in a big urn next to the door. I think that it would be great to have this tree year round and decorate it for every holiday and festive occasions all year long.
This was a black resin urn. She tells how to antique it.

Well, I got to get busy and create a porch like area at the front door. I am sure with these fun ideas, I can create something great! I know that every week I go visiting the friends who post on Pink Saturday, I get so many wonderful ideas, so don't be surprised when I post my little entry way on a Pink Saturday so you can see all the inspiring ideas that are shared each week right at my front door!

  1. You picked some very pretty porches to share. In Texas it was 83 degree today

  2. I love your pink tree and urn. I am a breast cancer survivor and I would like to re-create something like it for my front door! (If that is alright with you!) Great idea!

  3. Oh a pretty pink post! I truly love it! I think it would be an honor for Linda to recreate this for her porch. What a gorgeous display. Have a terrific weekend and enjoy the oranges! I had fun here today!

  4. Hello Gigi, thank you for your sweet comment. I too love the apron and I wear them as well.
