Country Christmas

                                                              Hello everyone!
              The weather has been pretty good here for November so I have been enjoying giving our home a Country Christmas look.
                           Our barn has an old back door that you see coming in our driveway so I have spruced it up for the season.
  Now,I am really looking forward to a little snow soon to really get the country Christmas look.
      I think you would all agree that snow would look better then the fallen leaves for these shots-but I had to work with what I had for today.
                  The old jaunting sleigh came from Coulson's and I gave it a fresh coat of paint.
                                              Yep! Definitely need snow!!!

          I would love to go for a horse and sleigh ride down some snowy country back roads here on the Island this winter but I may have to settle for using my imagination.

Well,I just thought I would share one of my projects with you.

And to all my American friends ~ Happy Thanksgiving!

I am joining Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage and My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday today.

Thanks for stopping by,

It's always so funny to think of snow and christmas in our neck of the woods it's always very hot and humid but we sit down to a hot baked dinner even if we eat cold meats and salads for the next week or so.

Looks lovely, Carolyn. When the snows come, it will be frosting on the cake!

Take care and know that this Thanksgiving, here in the US, among my many reasons for gratitude, you are there! Susan

Carolyn- go to Pic Monkey and edit your snow into your pics - they have all sorts of snowy goodness to appease your need for snow!

Call me crazy but... I love the season leading up to Christmas even more than Christmas itself. That's where most of my fondest Holiday memories are. So.... although, I think you're right - snow will make your vignette absolutely charming... the fact that we are still in Autumn in Winter (a beautiful season in itself) makes me so happy - so much fun to be had, still! =] It, actually, makes these images have a lovely and festive feeling to me. ;) Mission accomplished with this girly! =]

(I'm so silly and just rambling on... =] BUT, it's true! =])

.... just as long as we get snow somewhere along here.... I surely hope so! =/

Happy (US) Thanksgiving, Carolyn! =]

Oh, I love it!! I'm wishing I had one of those sleigh's right now. Tomorrow I put up an old sled and decorate our porch on our old home. But for now, I better go make the pies for Thanksgiving! I stopped in from The French Country Cottage.

podso said...

It looks wonderful and very country. I love your sled!

Elzie said...

It looks beautiful - but I agree with you, you need snow!!! The slade will look even more beautiful then, lol.
Hope you have a nice day.

It looks very festive in your garden. Snow would make the vignettes perfect, but I am not ready to shovel just yet:) Have a wonderful weekend.

Pamela Gordon said...

Wow! Love your outdoor country decorating Carolyn. It look beautiful now and I'm sure once we get some snow it will be perfect. We sure can't complain about the weather can we?

Rowan said...

It looks great and will be even better with a dusting of snow.I love that sleigh!

Debra said...

Absolutely gorgeous even without snow! :)

Hi Carolyn,

This is so beautiful! I can imagine what it would look like with snow too. A sleigh ride sound like fun!

Have a nice weekend,

Shabby soul said...

Darling Carolyn I love this country feel! So unusual for your garden!

Linda said...

Oh, Carolyn, I LOVE it! You were so meant to have that precious sleigh! I can't wait to see a pic of you and Andrew in it, snuggled under a plaid blanket with a steaming cuppa hot choc! A Victorian-style winter picnic! What a great Christmas card!!! lol Wish I was there cause I'd be the one to snap it! Haha

I would love to have that delightful sleigh up here on the mountain! Of course we don't have our snow . . . yet.

Love your charming touches, including the pine cross wreath!
