Since this week is all about Christmas, it would be kind of silly of me not to show you what’s on my front door, right? This is the same wreath I had last year, but since the holidays pretty much consumed me last year, I never got a chance to show you.

Here she is!


A couple summers ago I found these adorable antique wood skis, but I just couldn’t figure out how or where to use them.

Actually, I think I had too many ideas on how to use them, so I never did. Does that ever happen to anyone else?

Anyway, I attached them to a plain fake pine wreath, added a couple fun accessories tied on a pretty bow, and I was set to go!

The bow matches one on an antique wood sled to the right of the door.

Here’s the thing, my porch decorations are outdoorsy and minimal for two reasons. First of all, my house is pretty close to the road so things get dusty and dirty very quickly. This happens even faster in the winter when salt and cinder trucks are throwing their stuff everywhere. Secondly, though my porch has a roof on it, a lot of snow still accumulates on the porch. If there are a bunch of fancy decorations around, snow removal is almost impossible.

As much as I would love to decorate my porch like they do in the magazines, it’s just not practical.


For sanity’s sake, I’ll stick with my beautiful wreath and a couple trees and call it a day.

What do you think of my ski-inspired wreath? What’s hanging on your front door?

    LOVE!! You’ve found the ultimate place for your skis! Seriously adore this.

    All I have on my front door is… well, you’ll see soon but it’s even more simple than yours so I’ll be apologizing next. 🙂

    I absolutely love it!! Very interesting and very welcoming. Much better than just your everyday, ordinary wreath that everyone has.
