Rustic Winter Porch

RUSTIC WINTER PORCH DECORATED WITH PINE CLIPPINGS, GRAPEVINE, GALVANIZED OLIVE BUCKETS, BLACK AND WHITE BUFFALO PLAID, AND HUNTER BOOTS!


Rustic Winter Porch of a Log Cabin. Black and White Buffalo Check, Grapevine, and Fresh Pine ClippingsThis is my last post before Christmas and I wanted to share with you my simple rustic winter porch. Wow I really under-did myself with this one. I told you all in earlier posts I wasn’t going to a lot of trouble and by keeping it simple I also saved myself tons of decorating time. I got out my handy dandy little red wagon, and made my rounds from pine tree to pine tree clipping as I went. We have several varieties on our property so I try and take a little from each kind to create a mixture of textures and colors. 

Rustic Winter Porch of a Log Cabin. Hunter Boots, Galvanized Olive Bucket, and Fresh Pine ClippingsI already had the olive buckets on my porch, they had ferns in them for summer and you can see that here, so all I had to do was plop the pine branches in the bucket. I didn’t even go to the bother of trimming them to fit into a nice arrangement. They just got that under-did look that I mentioned before. I have a little trick for keeping my olive buckets from tipping over; I keep a landscape paver in the bottom of each one. It’s always so windy at the cabin that if I don’t they continually tip over, get damaged, and the contents spill out of them. After it happened a few times I finally got smart and resolved the issue.

Now if that’s not rustic I don’t know what is. I always keep a pair of Hunter boots right outside the door to slip on when it’s raining, muddy, or snowy. I have several pair in different colors so I swap out which pair resides on the deck with the season.

It takes a little while to get used to because every other blogger has beautiful Christmas displays but I’m ok with it being just how it is. I’m on a mission to weed through our home after the holidays and downsize on decor items I’m no longer needing. I hate keeping things around in case I might want them some day. All that stuff takes up to much room, and an overabundance of stuff stresses me out.

Safe travels to those of you doing that and I’ll see you all here after Christmas with an episode of Talk Till Dawn!
