She’s up & she’s beautiful. Our front porch just got a whole lot dreamier thanks to some snow and a tree. I hear the big snow is coming tonight... we are ready!! My next question is... can we keep the tree up all year? Pretty please? 🤗🎄#whitecottagefarm
I always wanted to have one of these on my porch... | by @brandonarchitects |
Ok, I’m not going to lie I wasn’t really feeling the holiday spirit lately for a few reasons, but this snow has spiked my holiday spirit meter through the roof. It also makes my heart happy to see a lot of my southern friends getting snow today as well!! 🤗 A white Christmas is truly special & it’s crazy what a blanket of snow can do for your spirit. #whitecottagefarm
When I decorate for the holidays, I’m all about tradition and this one has become one of my favorites - using greenery from the massive evergreen tree in our yard to make a front door swag! This is the 2017 version and it’s a bit more untamed than past years but I love it just the same! I’m sharing pics of my entire holiday porch plus my family and living rooms on the blog tomorrow as part of the #DeckedAndStyledChristmasTour along with the talented crew tagged in my post! So be sure to come on by in the morning and say hi! 🌲🌲 (Bells used for my greenery swag plus a link to the simple DIY tutorial are on my blog’s Shop page - just click the link in my IG profile and then the Shop tab!) http://liketk.it/2tObN @liketoknow.it #liketkit#LTKhome
Playing on the porch today with some Christmas decor... ignoring that it’s only 20 degrees because THE SUN IS OUT!!! I feel like I haven’t seen it in weeks so my soul is quite happy today. I was hoping to photograph it to share it on the blog with you guys, but I was also hoping for some fresh snow to make it extra pretty... a dusting of snow is basically like an Instagram filter for nature am I right?! Oh, one more thing... Jose and I may have started a vlog [scary!] & it may be up on the blog today: Lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile. I hope you guys love it!! We are quite excited. Happy Tuesday friends... I hope the sun is out where you are! #whitecottagefarm
We are one of those chimney-less homes and so there’s been some confusion in our home about how Santa gets inside the house! So.. this is our Magic Key! Or I should say Santa’s Magic Key. It hangs on our door all December long and on Christmas night he unties it from the handle, uses it to unlock the door, and leaves in next to the plate of cookies. This has worked really well for us the last couple years! My kids this it’s so fun that there’s a key that magically works when only Santa uses it. Luckily my kids were still young enough (my oldest was four) when we implemented it so they don’t remember not having one. But it’s a super simple solution to what can be a bit of a tricky situation. I got this key at Michaels a couple years ago for around $2 and hung some red and green ribbon on it! I’m sure most of you have heard of magic keys but I hope this helps someone who hasn’t!
Okay carpenters out there...give me an idea of where you’re from and what the markets are like. What the cost to frame, roof and paint this 14x16 porch. Slab was already poured and builder welded iron posts after framing was done. #framing#carpentry#addon#porch#remodel#handyman
