Dreaming is no longer necessary, we are definitely having a white Christmas here in the Twin Cities. We received a lovely 6″ or so of snow last weekend and we might get some more on Friday. Fingers crossed.
However, when I took the original photos for this post we had barely a dusting of snow.
I didn’t do too much with outside decorations this year, but I did take a few minutes to add some spruce tops and evergreen branches to the planter outside my door.
Then I added some lights and some twig star ornaments that I found at Target.
The real star of the show though is this adorable vintage kid sized snow shovel.
I purchased it some time ago at a vintage sale and then added the stencil myself.
Shortly after I put it outside we got that 6″ snowfall that I mentioned. Apparently someone was listening!
Now you can barely even see that stencil. Which is just as well since obviously I no longer have to dream of a white Christmas, it’s pretty much here!
