Winter Garden

We finally got a bit of snow here in Ohio
and I couldn't wait to show you
what Karrie got me for Christmas....


a chippy garden statue...
don't you love it to pieces???

I had good intentions
on nestling it in with the boxwood in my yard,
but it quickly went on top of the urn
 by my back door.

Here's the story...
I put a fresh wreath on it
with good intentions to do this...

Photo from Martha Stewart online
Alas! 
It didn't get done
(I think I will work on it this summer so it will be done for Christmas!)

Well, that angel thought it needed to be
plopped down into that urn,
so, I did it
and LOVED it!

What a joy it is
 to walk up to the back door...
and with that bit of snow that fell
it just makes it all the better!


Who needs a fancy plinth
 to sit a garden sculpture on...

Ahhhh.....
you know we're
Lovin'  it!

Karrie has great taste-love the garden statue!! I love how the snow lays around it too! I must admit I do love the Martha Stewart urn idea, but I also love the garden statue on the wreath too. I might try the MS version next year in my urns! Enjoy the snow!!

So pretty. With ya on a new commitment to work on some Christmas decor in the summer - sheesh, what should we be working on NOW? Beach decor?

How pretty...this is an original and neat gift!

I should take your advice and start my Christmas decorating in July. My best ideas always get put on the back burner during the holidays!

XO,

Great Christmas present. I like chippy.

Lucky girl! I like her on the urn. With the snowy winters we have here, the Martha idea wouldn't weather too well, but it sure is beautiful.

Donna said...

Oh, and I love it too!! Happy New Year!

Hugs,
Donna

I am jealous of your beautiful snow, it is 64 here in mid Missouri today , people walking around on campus with no jackets

I am anxious to get my flowers and yard cupid going again, but would love some winter snow

I love your "plopped" statue more than Martha's idea anyway. More cheerful, plus it can be up all winter and not get that pathetic "didn't-feel-like-getting-my-Christmas-decorations-down-till March" look, that I have been know to sport.
And let me thank you so much, for the decorating snow and scented heart soaps. It was such a pleasant surprise to find in my mailbox! It really brightened my day.
You girls are just too much.
Cheers,
Leah
