A little decorating outside

We did a little Christmas decor outside.
Window boxes with lights and poinsettias. I just got these window boxes last year and I'm having fun decorating them for the seasons.

My husband's flag pole Christmas tree. It looks great at night. He made a piece with holes drilled around the edges to attach to the top of the pole. Then he added the strands of lights with S hooks and brought them down to a hoop made from light plumbing pipe.

A little garland on the porch and wreathes on all the windows. I just raked leaves and they're all over the lawn again. Dang. I put red bubble lights in our candles in the windows but it is hard to see here.

Good Morning Nan,
Oh my, I love your window boxes. They are just beautiful. I love how your husband decorated the flag pole as well. And the front of your house is beautiful with the wreath's in the windows and garland on your porch. You have a beautiful place there Nan. I wish I had a porch of my own to decorate. We aren't decorating outside this year. I gave alot of my outside decorations to one of my hubby's aunts when we moved back in August. I am decorating more on the inside tho. Well, take care my friend and have a great Tuesday. May God Bless You and Yours.

Oh, I love your outside decorations, Nan. I just knew your front porch would be lovely and it is! The window boxes are beautiful...the flag pole tree is a work of art! And, the classic wreath is a favorite of mine.
Hugs to you this morning,

Nan, your home looks just lovely. I love your husband's pole tree. And the window boxes are simply beautiful.
Thanks for visiting me and the nice remarks. The header is a plaque I have in the kitchen and I took a pic of it and my sister, sha, at Sha's Stuff helped me get it on my page. She's pretty handy to have around.
hope you have a great day.

Your window boxes look lovely. I really like how your husband decorated the flag pole. As the song goes "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas."

Your decorations are wonderful. I especially like the tree that your husband made. Homemade decorations are so special.

I've enjoyed visiting with you.
