Happy Friday, everyone!
Today, I am sharing my front porch with a little bit of Christmas decor.

Cleaning up all my Fall decor turned out to be a two hour job. 
When I went to remove the hay and pumpkins the mess was incredible!
Of course it didn't help when it decided to get windy in the middle of the clean up. LOL

For that reason, I decided my Christmas porch was going to be very simple this year.

Let me show you around.

For the bench pillows, I used the same fabrics as the ones in my kitchen and family room.
And using a simple stencil, I added the word "joy" to the smallest pillow.

Next to the bench sits my little street lamp which I also decorated using the same fabrics.

On the door, I added the new wreath I made for this year and over it, a garland with poinsettias, ornaments 
and two burlap bows. Very simple.

And that is all I am doing on the porch this year.
Although is very simple, I hope it feels welcoming to our friends and family.

Thank you all for stopping by and have a great weekend!
