Outdoor Wednesday

Hello my friends!!! I have a new-to-me computer now, so I shall be able to blog much more easily.

Did you have a good Christmas?  I did, it was different, but very fun.

I am joining "Outdoor Wednesday" again today and I am going to show you what little I did for outdoor Christmas decor.

Snowfall 020

Snowfall 017

I hope to do more next year, we have a couple of bushes in the front that would look nice covered in lights, so I am going to look for some on an after Christmas sale.  I also need to find a nice bow for the greenery around the door, to replace what I have up there now.

These two photos were taken in Regina.  The first one is the old Radisson Plaza Hotel, a stately and still very beautiful place to stay.  The rooms are gorgeous!  The second one is the Saskatchewan Legislative Buildings in Christmas lights.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to doing something special for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.  We will be going to a special service at  our church, but we won’t be staying late, which I am looking forward to.  I have found in the last year or so that the new year comes in just fine even when I don’t stay up to see it in.  I think my age is showing.:~)

                          Hugs, Cindy

Hi Cindy, I hope you spend a happy new year! Our Lord fill you with good health for you and your whole entire family. and all the desires of your heart will be granted! I live in a tropical country so I do not see snow unless you are traveling. When did I see your ticket and photos of a white Christmas I look beautiful! also photos of the hotels and their beautiful Christmas decorations with that combination of colors look expectacular! I'll tell you that my husband and I thought to visit the church on December 31. until 10.00 pm and then be with family. Cindy I hope that this day God's peace fill your home and your church and every place that inhabit all. blessings, Rose Marie

Cindy, I LOVE the way you decorated your window box and front door... simple and elegant... just beautiful! The snow from Mother Nature is the perfect added touch! :)
I also want to thank you for your sweet, sweet comment, Cindy. The way you feel about my decorating style is the way I feel about your charming vintage home. I just adore all of the character it has. No matter how much decorating I do, I will never be able to achieve the charm that comes with an older home. :)
I've so enjoyed getting to know you in 2010 and look forward to getting to know you even better in 2011! I wish you lots of love, joy, and good health in the new year, my friend!

Lovely decorations, Cindy - both yours and the city's! Like you, I find no need to stay up and ring in the New Year. I've found it "rings in" just fine without me. ;) Thanks for visiting my cottage and for your sweet comment.

The scattering of snow on your gorgeous window box adds the perfect festive final touch, don't you think?!
