Little known fact – Santa leaves the best presents at homes with the best outdoor decorations.

Yes, it’s true.

So since I love presents and don’t want to be passed by, I made sure to attract Santa and his reindeer with a styling porch.

What a fun winter porch - love that cute vintage shovel

Welcoming winter porch - love the little details

An old tartan Skotch Jug, a few of my snowy mason jar candles and a pair of ice skates say come on in and sit by a roaring fire.

  1. You are pretty good at stylin’ and profiling’. Gorgeous front porch decor. Love the plaid!
    I’m blogger stylin’ today too 😉

  2. Wow Kelly!!!! Talk about gorgeous??? Your front door picture literally made me say out loud “oooooh”. lol. It is so pretty! That shovel with the image on it is ah-mazing, too. And I must start collecting vintage crates…they look so pretty. I mean, how could Santa not stop. You pulled it out here! 😉 Love it, friend!

  3. Kelly,
    I love the porch. Perfect touches of everything. Makes me wish my door had a little more character to it so I could style around it. Your home tour was a wonderful treat. Thanks so much for sharing each year. It brings a bit of holiday magic into my day!

  4. I would definitely stop by and leave some really cool presents at this house if I were Santa. No coal in the stockings here. I am seriously coveting that Santa Vintage Snow Shovel. Those kinds of things never make it past the Mason/Dixie line for us Westerners. We have to deal with faux antique and vintage here!

  5. You are very talented. I’m a “new follower”, I know it is wrong to “ENVY”, however: my family and I moved in with the “in-laws”, which was …”only for a couple of months. …..” I believe we know how that goes sometimes. I miss so very much: decorating, diy’ing,” stylin’ & profilin'”, and I wish I could see some advise about trying to make the best of things. …esp. for my 3 children to incorporate our type of decor, in a “temporary”, living quarter’s. This is our 2nd Christmas here! Don’t get me wrong I am very grateful, that we have family to help, in certain hardships. I only watch how beautiful your house is (as I’m crying)…. longing for that since of comfort we had. (Did I mention my mother- in-law, is a bit of a hoarder (?) Temporary living decor…would be a wonderful advice, I believe for many who might be in the same situation (?) Sorry so long comment, again: gorgeous! !!!!!!

    1. Hi Missy!
      I understand – we rented for two years while we were searching for – then renovating our house. Most of my stuff was packed away in boxes for that time so I had to buy a very small tree each Christmas. I suggest you decorate for the family – I’m sure you mom in law and everyone else would appreciate it if you took over. Buy some natural greenery – garland – snip it and put it all around the house. Add a bunch of candles, ornaments in bowls, fresh fruit – you can’t go wrong. You can have your kids make ornaments and paper snowflakes – string them up and hang them in front of every window. How fun would that be. Let them in on the action – get paint, clear or wooden ornaments and let them go to town decorating. Hope that helps and enjoy the holiday season.

  6. Girl! where do you find so many gorgeous treasures? honestly, every time I turn around I spot a gem…LOVE that old scotch jug…gah. beautiful ya! xo

  7. Seriously?! Totally looks like a BHG stylist did all of your dirty work. Everything is fantastic!! And those metal stocking are fab. If Santa give the best gifts for outdoor decor, I’m getting coal. Two candles and an ugly shovel. Ha!

  8. I am half way done with my I better get crackin’ or no presents for me!!…My problem is that I ran out of hot chocolate! are way too creative Kelly!!…just love how you stacked those soda crates…and love that that a family treasure?

  9. So pretty Kelly, I love the skates on your wreath – I had the same idea this year. I love the feel it adds to the front porch! Your sleigh is amazing too, I saw one at an antique store today but totally couldn’t stomach the $120 . Saw some gorgeous vintage skis too but the $199 was also above me. Where do you find most of your amazing stuff? Great flea markets? Antique shops? Garage sales?

  10. So pretty! I love the stacked crates and that Christmas shovel? Amazing! So fun being on this tour with you 😉

  11. Before you make your choice, it’s important to understand
    how they differ. For example, download the Service Vehicle bundle and you get a wrecker, a taxi, an ambulance, a school bus, a fire engine
    and a police car. The point being, for you dollar, you can purchase
    a scooter that agrees with your wallet.
